This may be a really dumb question but I'm confused. When you do the Cardigan border, what is the "opening you have created." I understand the 6 stitches I've cast on need to be purled but do the instructions mean to go around the entire sampler? If not, what is the opening?
As you can tell from my question, I am a new knitter but I want to learn all the skills I can to get better. Incidentally, the short rows made sense to me and I do not have a hole (LOL)
