It came out beautifulI changed the colors from the pattern, but I think it still looks good. It took me 3 weeks, and once I got over holding awkwardly it did get easier. The edging was a little difficult, and would be made easier if that were in picture or video form to follow as well.
I'm having a hard time with the edging. I'm not sure where I'm placing the single crochets. I've worked really hard, and I don't want to mess it up at the end. Thank you in advance.

Hi. You may not work a sc in every sts around the outside of the blanket, that is ok. As long as you have the proper number of sc on each side/end the remainder of the edging will work out.
I like to mark a side off in quarters, than work 1/4 of the sts between each marker to make sure the sts are spaced equally. example. 89 sts divide by 4 = 22.25, you will need 22 sts in each quarter down the side of the blanket with a couple of extra sts worked in. As long as you end with 89 sts.
When reading the pattern I did notice that one corner did not have 3 sc in that corner, I have added that info below. Good luck.
