Fringe 2

This is how you add a fringe to a scarf.

1. Cut the right number of lengths for one tassel, slightly more than twice the length of the finished tassel.

2. Fold the strands in half and draw the folded end through the edge of the knitted fabric using a crochet hook.

3. Pull the loose ends of yarn firmly through the loop to form a knot. Trim all the ends once fringe is completed.

4. The number of strands in each tassel decides the thickness of the fringe and the distance between each tassel.

Hints and Tips

Find an object which is the right size for your fringe, and wrap the yarn around your object. You could use a book, a DVD case or a baking tin! Anything which is the size you want. Once you have wrapped your yarn around your object enough times, cut the yarn at one end. You will then have your strands to make your fringe.

If you crochet 1 round of single crochet around the edge of your project, you will find it easier to add a fringe or tassel. You can add your tassels to each stitch, or every other stitch, or whatever pattern you wish.
