Bind off, leave a 6 in. tail and weave in all loose ends.
Complete a Sc border as follows:
With right side of square facing you, join CC into top corner and ch 2. Sc into same st and continue sc around (60 sts along top and bottom edges and 40 sts along the sides), complete (sc, ch1, sc) into corner sts. Steam block your finished piece to reduce the curl.
