For this border, you will need to know how to do a dc5tog (double crochet 5 stitches together.

Crochet Dot Border Stitch –
After you have your blanket the desired length that you want it, evenly single crochet all the way around the edges making sure to place 2 single crochets in each corner.
Slip stitch the color of yarn you want the border to be in any where around the blanket. It doesn’t matter where you start the border.
*Chain 3, in the first chain of those chain 3’s dc5tog, slip stitch in the next 5 stitches* repeat * to * around the piece that you are working on
You could work more or less slip stitches in-between the dc5tog. It just depends on how close or far apart you want the dots.
And that’s all there is to the crochet dot border stitch!
