Sl St slip stitch
Bobble *Yarn over, insert into indicated stitch, yarn over, pull through, yarn over, pull through 2 (two loops left on hook) Repeat * four more times until there are 6 loops on your hook, yarn over, pull through all loops on hook. See the Melu Crochet Bobble Stitch Guide for step by step photos.For help with changing colour, take a look at my Bobble Stitch with colour changes guide
Continue using the same colour yarn as the main part of your blanket (in this case I continued with light grey).
Round 1: Right side facing. Ch1, Dc in each stitch evenly around each side of the blanket, with 3Dc in each corner, sl st to join to the first Dc, Cut yarn.
Round 2: Join contrasting colour yarn. Right side facing Ch1, Dc in each stitch evenly around each side of the blanket, with 3Dc in each corner, sl st to join to the first Dc, do not cut yarn.
Round 3: Ch1, turn (wrong side facing) bobble in same stitch, dc in next stitch, continue to bobble, dc around each side of the blanket, sl st to join to ch1. Cut yarn and sew in ends.
If you use a variegated yarn, you can easily have a beautifully blended colour changing border like this one on my Personalised Sea Life baby blanket
