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.

To the person who posted the message below, I am sorry I haven't said thank you the moment members of this group came back with answers but this is ac tually the first time I checked whether someone replied. I am not 'using' t he group, but asked because I thought I am allowed to. If you are the perso n who emailed me, sorry, I didn't open the email as I tend not to read emai ls from people I do not know. Sorry if I offended you The message which I am replying to, from snipped-for-privacy@fl.it: 'I notice that t hese gmail questions never come back to thank anyone for information, haven't checked the outfit that used to be Sew Girls and morphed into another mirror group, but likely we are being used again.
