This is one I made for Jace, but look at the edges! I found the greatest tutorial at Helping Little Hands and just love it!
You braid the ends instead of tying them. When you click on her link, it takes you to doing a braided blanket with 2 pieces of fleece (which I want to try next), but there's also a link in that post to using one piece.
I really think it makes a much cleaner edge and a lot easier on the fingers than tying.
