Do a Nun Stitch hem around it and then fringe it when you're done.

Draw a thread to show where you want the edge of the blanket to be.
Work hemstitch all around the blanket.  
Draw another thread to mark where the edge of the fringe will be.
Cut along this drawn thread.
Ravel back to the hemstitching.

There are many stitches suitable for restraining a fringe.  As long as
the outermost thread is firmly anchored to the fabric, it will do.
Most people prefer a stitch that gathers the threads of the fringe
into little bunches, but if the fabric is very coarse, you may prefer
to work a separate stitch for every thread.

Do not under any circumstances ravel out the fringe first and attempt
to restrain it afterwards.

I use the he stitch method but be sure you do the pulled thread and cut for the fringe edge, that makes for the neatest finish.
