Loop Fringe for a Scarf

Lion Brand® Velvetspun


Exact gauge is not essential to this project.


Gauge is not important to this project; length of fringe should be as it appeals to you.

There are many kinds of fringe. Some yarns do well with a fringe that has loose ends, but some unravel. In this case, a loop fringe is a good choice because there are no free ends to come apart.

Lay the scarf flat on the table, right side up with the edge facing you. Insert the hook from the bottom to the top approximately ¼ inch [.5 cm] from the end and side of the scarf and pull the end of the yarn down so that it is underneath the scarf. This is the end that you will need to tie off.

1. Insert the hook from the top to the bottom of the scarf approximately ¼ inch from then end but approximately ½ inch [1 cm] from last loop (or the side, if this is the first loop or very last loop on the fringe.)

This picture shows inserting the crochet hook through the scarf, from the top to the bottom and about 1/4 inch from the edge.
2. Pull a loop of yarn through from the bottom to the top of the scarf this pictures shows a loop of yarn pulled through the scarf.
3. Put your finger through the loop and pull a second loop through the first one.

On the first loop only, use the free end that is under the bottom of the scarf and tie it securely to the end that is coming up. Use several knots and trim the yarn.

4. The strand of yarn that is on the left can be pulled to tighten the first loop. Pull this tight.

This picture shows the second loop pulled through the first one.
5. Pull on the free end of the yarn (the end that goes to the ball) so that the loop is the length you want. As shown in the picture, loops will normally twist -- this is expected.

Repeat steps 1-5 until the end is completely fringed.

This pictures shows 5 pieces of fringe, stretched to equal length.
Cut the end of the yarn to approximately 5 inches and tie off tightly to one of the strands of the last loop. Tie several knots to be sure that the yarn will not unravel or come loose. Trim closely.

Loop Fringe for a Scarf Reviewed by Donna Charlap on 2012-12-18 *****
I wanted to finish a shawl knit with Homespun yarn with fringe that wouldn't unravel without a knot on the end of each fringe.
Although Homespun yarn didn't twist like the Velvetspun shown in the pattern, this is a great solution. Thanks, kids!!
