Great suggestions and i even got the book from my library, but I am still stuck! I think I want to do an eyelet garter border (so as not to detract from an already beautifully patterned blanket!), but I want to miter the corners. i do not know why this is so confusing to me, but it is! If I do all sides at once, I must have to p a row and then k a row to get garter, correct? And do I increase at the corners each time i go around? Or am I better off leaving one corner open and knitting back and forth?
