Whoa... That is a big one! Maybe you could look at some edge patterns?

Thanks, I started it in July when I first learned to knit, I really didn't know what I was doing so it was a way for me to develop my technique.

wow! Honestly it looks nice how it is with its clean bold stripes, I don't think it needs any edging.

I agree with Chrysee - it looks great as is! However, if I were to put a border on, I would probably keep it to a simple single crochet. WTG on that blanket!
