Finishing the edge on afghan fabric

I am working on a cross stitched afghan on a Charles Craft Lady Elizabeth Afghan, and I am trying to figure out how to finish the edge. The only information I have seen is to fringe the afghan cloth, but I don't like that. Would doing a single crochet edge a few stitches (about 5 or 6) around the edge be enough to keep it from fraying? LIke a blanket stitch, but I thought that maybe doing the crocheted edge might be even more secure.

Any thoughts or other suggestions?
