When I do a border on a square, I just do 1 st (hdc or dc or sc, whichever you are using) in each stitch across top; each row down the side; each stitch across the bottom; and in each row down the other side. I simply use 3 stitches in each corner.

When I do the second row I do 1 stitch in each stitch of the previous row. When I get to the 3 stitches in the corner I work 1st in the first, 3 sts in the second, 1 st and in the 3rd. It usually keeps it flat that way.
