You could do this one and then just weave a ribbon through the eyelets!

Easy baby blanket

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

you can also make a wide ribboned edge by getting a Wide silkish ribbon, and pinning it along the edge (with the blanket streached a tiny bit) when you get to the cornerfold it down, and make the outside seam a line from the inner corner to the outer one
and a basic zigzag stitch holds it in place really well
I used to make wubby blankets
satin on one side, Flanel of the other

more than you asked for, but someting else fun to make
