Need explanation re: Border for Easy Baby Blanket

HELLO, Inexperienced knitter, or tied up in stitches in Canada, I know how to make stitches,and have completed the blanket part, but I need help in understanding directions in pattern for border in baby blanket (pattern # J23.0001-9C. Red Heart, Designer Sport).

Pattern States: Knit to marked stitch (K1, P1, K1) in corner stitch, mover marker to new corner stitch, repeat from * around.

Does this mean that I execute K1,P1,K1 all together in a single corner stitch, or do I execute K1, P1, K1 on three successive stitches. OR do I perhaps create new stitches with the yarn. Explain also which stitch becomes the "new" corner stitch.

Would appreciate clear precise instructions. Want to finish blanket before child goes to college.

All help appreciated!
