Adding Fringes to Cowl Scarf Crochet Pattern 

3. Take a strip of cardboard 4 ¼ inches tall and wind yarn around it 

 

Take a strip of cardboard 4 ¼ inches tall. Wind yarn around it up to 20 times as shown in pic 3 above, cut it along one edge of the cardboard. You now have strands of the same length.

 

 

 

4. Fold 2 strands at the middle and pull through the corner

 

 

5. Grab all the tails and pull through the loop

 

 

 

See pictures 4 & 5 above to learn how to add a fringe.

Take 2 strands and attach them to the bottom corner of your triangle and work your way up. If you are using variegated yarn, make sure you work on both sides at the same time to get the colors flowing right. 

 

Finishing the Cowl Scarf

Weave in any tails left and your crochet scarf cowl is ready to wear.
