I saw this edging and thought it would work.  If you click on the link and scroll down just about to the bottom of the page there is a clickable tutorial for the edging.

That was exactly the border I was going to suggest!  I think it really complements the granny stitch!

I love the border this lady has added to her Granny. The colors pop and it looks very "finished". Her instructions are writtern after the 2nd photo.

I just finished a couple of join as you go granny afghans and put two rows of dc on one of them and then finished it off with a row of reverse sc.

 

On the other, I did a few rows of sc and finished that one off with a row of picots.

 

It also depends on the colors, if it is more masculine I tend towards reverse sc, if more feminine, picots.

 

Sometimes, just a row of dc or a couple of rows of sc, many times I just look at the afghan, whether it is a join as you go or one big giant square granny or rectangle and then decide. 

 

The one from Crochet Again is stunning. Another to add to  my evergrowing list. LOL.

I like it a lot too. One of my current projects is a granny for my sister and I just may put this border on it.  :D
