Knitted Border

I need to add a border to my knitted baby blankie. I was going to add a pre-made lace/satin border but I am not sure if it will look right against the knitting. Has anyone tried this? How does it look?

If not can anyone give this beginner a simple but decorative knitted border pattern and help explain how to knit it onto the blanket?


Here are some border patterns. I didn’t look through them, but you might want to see what you think you can handle.

You can pick up stitches along the edges of your blanket and add anything you want.

Amy has video on how to pick up (pick up and knit) stitches on the edge of finished work.
