Rows 9-64: continue to alternate rows 7 & 8, ending with an arrow row (or you can keep going until your blanket is your desired length, just be sure to end with an arrow row – I ended with 28 arrow st rows, with 27 dc rows in between)

Fasten off and weave in all ends.

Add fringe to the bottom and top edges, if desired. Or you can add a tassel to each of the 4 corners.
