Edging:
Round 1
 Colour 286
1 dc  in the back loop of each st, but in the corners you  make 2 dc in the same st. NOTICE Between the squares I have made dc2tog in the last st of a square and in the first st of  next square.  It makes the edging more straight and neat.  Photo 10.

Round 2  Colour  248
Start in the first dc2tog on a short side:
*tr3tog + ch 2  + tr3tog in dc2tog =a flower,  photo 12,  ch 2 ( skip 1 st, dc in next st, ch 2) 9 times, repeat * 3 times, skip 1 st, tr3tog in next st, ch 3, tr3tog in next st ( a corner on your blanket ), ch 2, skip 1 st, dc in next st, ch 2 etc.
You make the long sides in the same way  (repeat*) but make 10 dc and 10 ch-sp between each flower on the long sides, instead of 9 as on the short sides. Join to initial  tr3tog with a ss.
Notice that on this round you might need to skip 2 st instead of 1 st before or after a flower to get the right amount of ch-sp. 

Round  3 Colour 248
Ss to ch-sp, * puff in ch-sp (photo 13), ch 4, skip tr3tog and ch-sp, dc in dc, (dc in ch-sp, dc in dc) 8 times, ch 4, skip ch-sp + tr3tog, repeat * around, but on the long sides you repeat the parenthesis 9 times instead of 8. Join to initial puff with a ss. Fasten off.
