That is up to you. All depends on how many sts you put around the perimeter in row 1.

 NOTE: *For a reference I put 149 sts along the top and bottom of blanket while the sides were 180. Along the sides I put 16 sts between the pink stripes and DC on the strip itself. That way the stitches are evenly spread out.
