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.
