To make a corner, ch 5 and sc in same st, working across top of blanket ch 5, sc IN BETWEEN the cable, *(ch 5, sc in ch 2 sp) twice, ch 5, sc in between the cable, rep from * across, (ch 5, sc in corner space) twice
Repeat edging around remaining sides as established.
Note: as you are edging the bottom of the blanket instead of having a ch 2 space to work in there are two dc that you made in the foundation row. So work your sc in the space just after the cable and just before the next cable ignoring those two dc.
Weave in all ends.
