Then dec at beg of each row as follows: K 1, K 2 tog, K the rest of row, turn piece. Continue like this until 3 sts remain on needle, slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso. Cut the yarn, pull it through st and fasten. Blanket measures 52 cm along each of the 4 sides.

EDGE IN WAVE PATTERN:
Beg in the mid of a corner on blanket and pick up from RS on circular needle size 4 mm with off white as follows: * Pick up 1 st in the corner, pick up 1 st at the edge in every ridge and make 1 YO between every st until next corner, pick up 1 st in the corner * = 155 sts along one side of blanket. Beg with next circular needle and repeat from *-* along next side on blanket – NB: When picking up like this there will be 2 sts in each corner. Repeat the same way along the next 2 sides on blanket = 620 sts distributed on 4 circular needles.
K 1 round (= 1st round in diagram). Work next round as follows: * Work A.1 (= 8 sts), repeat A.2 over the next 140 sts and work A.3 (= 7 sts) *, repeat from *-* along all 4 sides. Continue pattern like this.
When last round in A.1, A.2 and A.3 remains, edge measures approx. 13 cm.
Work last round in A.1, A.2 and A.3 AT THE SAME TIME LOOSELY cast off - outer edge will bend according to pattern.
