Border in crochet 1866

This set of instructions was made by Bethany simply by looking at the illustration because I'd got the danged link to the original instructions wrong. Thanks, Bethany!

 

Note: My version differs slightly than the original instructions, where I have double crochets, they used treble, but the overall appearance is the same. Also I did 3 rows of double crochet chain one spaces because I used the pattern for a baby blanket border in sport weight yarn and I added a ribbon in the middle of the 3 rows. Looks really pretty, so I added this row in the instructions if you wish to keep the pattern like the pictured pattern, just delete row number two.

Note: Corner instructions are following at the end as I did not make this a "project"; it is kind of open ended for the person so they can make it fit to their pattern

Note: Pattern is in multiples of 20.

Pattern Abbreviations:
sc - single crochet dc - double crochet opr - of previous row
ch - chain sp - space sk - skip
st - stitch rep - repeat slst - slip stitch
sp - space cl - cluster hdc - half double crochet
