Regarding blankets, standard practice is that we don't attach tzitzis and we don't round off any corners.

Reddit user ShamanSTK asks:

I have a blanket on the couch with four corners which is almost used exclusively for day time use. It is not a blanket slept with and it is used solely for warmth when I don't feel like turning on the heat. Does it need tzitzis?

In the case of a wool blanket in the daytime, this link says to round one corner. What if ShamanSTK's blanket is made of cotton? Must he round one corner? Must he attach tzitzis?

I'm confused: why do you give the answer in a link, and then ask a quesiton? –  Double AA Mar 22 '13 at 6:25
@DoubleAA: I looked at the link. But regarding a daytime-use cotton blanket, I'm still not sure what to do. –  unforgettableid Mar 22 '13 at 6:33
