Making the Scarf
Cast on 8 stitches and knit every row until piece measures approximately 54" (137cm).
Bind off all stitches.
Make the Fringe
For each fringe, cut two 12" (30.5cm) pieces of yarn (204 pieces total).
Place scarf flat on table. Beginning at one end of a long edge, *insert the crochet hook from back to front into the groove (knit row) between the purl ridges. Fold 2 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 through the loop. Pull ends to tighten knot. Repeat from * across one long edge; repeat from * 5 times on each short end.
Another way of making an ordinary scarf very pretty and personal is by adding embellishments. Our next pattern is for a floral applique scarf.
