almost done and first chain too loose

I'm a beginning crocheter and am almost finished with my first baby blanket. Problem is, the very first row that I chained. I made it too loose to begin with and it now seems to have become even more loose. There are large loops that I don't think I can do anything with.

I want to do a nice edging, looked up Picot and was going to do that. The instructions say to chain a round first. But I don't know what to do with that bottom row of loose chains. I got all the way to the end and then realized that this is going to be a problem.

I'm ready to do the edging now, is there anything I can do to work in the loose chains?

Thanks so much!
