FINAL BORDER

Increases continue to be worked on the inside of the stitch markers, but also directly in the corner. As you may have noticed you have lost the point in your corner, and this is how you will create the angle again.

Now begin creating a spine in the middle of the corner row, starting at the next corner as we have already completed the last on the previous round.
