For the edge I’ve crocheted one row of single crochet with a 6 mm hook.

I’ve knitted the blanket with the yarn in two. After you knit 250g (5 balls) take the next skein of the light blue color and one of the turquoise and knit together so you can have a smooth passing from the first color to the second.
