Fringe 

Cut 13” strands of yarn: 24 strands of color A, 36 strands of color B, 8 strands of color C. Matching the fringe color to the row color, attach sections of fringe to the ends of each rows (short edges of scarf) as follows: 

  • Hold 2 strands of the matching color together, and fold in half forming a loop at one end. Match the cut ends of the yarn on the other end. 
  • Insert your hook into the edge of the row and pull the loop about halfway through.
  • Draw the loose ends through the loop, over the edge of the scarf. This forms a knot.
  • Holding the top of the fringe in one hand, pull gently on the fringe ends with your other hand, tightening the knot until it’s secure. 

After you have attached all the sections of fringe, trim the ends so that they are even.
