Fringing A Scarf

Fringing a scarf can really change its whole appearance. Here's how you do it:

You will need a scarf, (knitted or crocheted) a ruler, scissors, a needle with a large eye, and yarn.

Depending on the length that you want the fringe to be, you can cut pieces of yarn at different lengths. I cut my pieces at 9 inches for medium length fringe.

Fold your yarn in half and thread the folded part through the needle.

Slip your needle through one of the whole in the bottom of the scarf.

Bring the bottom pieces of the thread up through the loop on the scarf.

Tighten the yarn.
Your fringe will most likely be uneven. To fix this, you can line the fringe up at the edge up a table, place a ruler on top to keep it steady, and cut away the uneven pieces.

And you are done fringing! Sorry that the pictures didn't quite turn out, but hopefully they were helpful.


This scarf was knit by casting on 20 stitches on a size 10 needle, and knit the whole way through.
