Making the Scarf
Cast on 14 stitches
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Purl
Change to garter stitch (knit every row) until piece measures approximately 50 inches (127cm). Purl 1 row. Knit final row. Bind off. Weave in loose ends.
Make the Fringe
Note: It may help to use open stitch markers to identify where you want to place the fringe beforehand.
Cut 60 strands of yarn, each 18 inches (45.5cm). Divide the strands into 12 groups, each with 5 fringe strands. Gather 1 group of 5 fringe strands together, and beginning at one of the short edges, *insert the crochet hook from back to front into the openings above the second row of the scarf edge. (It is very important to make sure you are inserting the crochet hook above the second row -- otherwise, the weight of the fringe will not be supported.) Fold the 5 fringe strands in half and hold cut ends together to create a loop. Place loop on hook and pull it halfway through the knitted piece. With hook still in place, pull cut ends of fringe through the loop to make knot. Pull fringe ends to tighten. Repeat from * 5 more times, spacing fringe evenly along scarf's edge, for a total of 6 fringe groups. Repeat fringing at the opposite end of the scarf. Trim all fringes to 8 inches (20.5cm).
If confetti sounds like fun and good times, then popcorn is a definite must! The next scarf pattern is for the popcorn scarf.
