A knitted or crocheted border for a woven blanket

I wove these two baby blankets using a rigid heddle loom. I didn’t want any fringes for these blankets so I added a knitted border to one blanket and a crocheted border to the other blanket using the warp yarn.

The warp yarn for the blanket with the crocheted border was sport weight while the warp yarn for the blanket with the knitted border was worsted weight. The two different weft yarns used for both blankets were super bulky (yarn weight of 6). 

Both the knitted and crocheted borders work well in taking care of managing the fringes of the warp yarn but I found the crocheted border for the baby blanket easier to manage and less time consuming.

How do you take care of the fringes of the warp yarn in woven baby blankets?
