I'm not even going to attempt weaving in all of those ends, I'm just going to make a solid black or pink blanket the same dimensions and sew it onto the back then do the trim around them both. It'll be nice and warm! I edited it a bit, too. You can see my edited version in projects. Feel free to add me on there!
That is very challenging! but very cool! That makes sense to do a full back layer and will make a fairly heavy blankie. What about sewing on a piece of pink fleece and then edging in pink? It will be done faster and you could just pin and hand sew the fleece around the finished top layer on the underside. (saves you half the time!) If you leave all your tail ends inside between the layers, don't cut the yarn ends too close. Leave a 2" tail at least and tie your knots tight as they have to stand up to laundry.
