So, I am crocheting a blanket, and I LOVE it.  I am doing a granny ripple, and things are going great but I'm very burned out on it.  My blanket is 85 inches wide (holy cow, right?)  This was after I re sized it twice!  (First was 112 inches, Second time was 98 inches)

I am tired of redoing it, and I'm at the point where I cant pull the yarn out.  I was wondering.... is there any way I can cut my blanket in half and tie in the ends? I planned to add a border around it before I realized how massive it was.  If I am able to cut it, I'd like to put a border in.  Any help would be appreciated....

Here is my blanket folded in half.  Ideally I'd like to cut it in half and attach the second half to the top of the bottom half....

Ooooh, I dunno, but I think it's GORGEOUS!!! What was the pattern you used???

As for your idea of cutting and grafting, I think it may be feasible, however, that's A LOT of ends to weave in.

Personally, I think 85 inches is a great LENGTH for a blanket. If you keep going to 70 inches wide, it would fit a queen size bed quite nicely. Your zigzags would be sideways, though.

I always have a few blankets on the go because I get sick of one and then go back to it (though, you can read my post about THAT blanket which changed size while I was gone...). It may be that you just need to take a break from this blankie for a bit, and when you come back, you will be refreshed?
