Your blankie is sure to be a hit with this super cute edging!

Foundation:

Your first round will be a chain loop round. So if your final blanket round is an SC round, then (SC, skip 1 stitch, chain 2) repeat around – in all 4 corners, work (SC, chain 2, SC).

If your final round is chain loops, just make sure you can work (SC, chain 2) loops around, putting (SC, chain 2, SC) in the 4 corners.

It will help if between corner chain loops, you have a number of chain that is a multiple of 6 + 5. Example: 35 chain loops between corners.
