Need Help Figuring out Stitches

A friend of mine gave me her pot holder that her great grandmother had made her to try and replicate. It is 2 pieces thick. Any idea how they were grafted together? It goes in a complete line across all 4 sides. Also, how do I get the white boxes around the pink? Help please!!!

Welcome!
It looks like several rows of stockinette (knit one row, purl one row) followed by rows of garter stitch (knit all rows). The color is changed to the white, pink, white for the garter stitch and there’s a slip stitch on a white row. Looks like a crocheted slip stitch edging.
It’s a lovely pattern and a shame some disaster occurred in the center.
