Adding to a knitted baby blanket

Hello, I have just knitted a baby blanket for my soon to be born grandchild. Once I cast off I realised it was way to small. Any suggestions of how to increase the width of this without it looking like an after thought? I dont mind if it is a different pattern, knitted or crocheted etc. I have all the wool colours left to work with. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.


I would suggest crocheting a border around it. If you do double crochet around the edge about 3 - 4 rows around, it would look good

To your question: Can you do both knitting and crochet? A crochet border could look nice (and deliberate). I often mix the two together in a project.
