To make fringe, cut equal lengths of yarn, pull it folded through a stitch on the scarf, draw the ends through the folded bit to create a knot, and trim the edges evenly. For a single scarf, the process shouldn't take longer than 30 minutes.Know More
Cut equal lengths of yarn. Remember that these are folded in half to make the fringe, so fold the strand in half to get an idea of the length before cutting. One way to easily cut fringe is to wrap the yarn around something, such as a book or magazine, then cut through one or both ends, depending on how long you want it.
Gather the fringe into equal bunches. The number in each bunch depends on how thick you want the fringe. How many bunches you make depends on the width of the scarf's edges. You can do smaller bunches every stitch or two, or you can do larger bunches every three or four stitches.
Choose a stitch to add the first bunch of fringe. Start on one end. Take a gather of fringe, and fold it in half. Use a crochet hook to pull the bunch through with the hook attached at the fold of fringe. Pull the fringe through about 1 or 2 inches.
With the hook under the fold of the fringe, grab the ends of the fringe from the other side. Use the hook to pull it under the fold so that the ends of the fringe cross over the end of the scarf. Pull the ends all the way through, and yank until its tight, forming a knot.
Continue adding the bunches of fringe along the edge until the fringe is complete.
If you want the fringe to be uniform, trim the edges until they are even.
