Place anchor yarn. (contrasting color, thick yarn.)
Work entire afghan in Stockinette Stitch for a total of 200 rows or until afghan is the size that
you desire. Be sure to save (2) skeins of yarn for the fringe.
Bind Off very loosely:
Start at end opposite the yarn attachment. With crochet hook, lift (2) loops
alternating from one board to the other. Pull the loop closest to hook thru the other loop. Pick up
one additional loop from opposite board. Pull (1) loop thru the other on crochet hook. Continue this
across the board until only one loop remains. Pull yarn tail thru last loop for a knot. The yarn
tail will be worked into the fringe.
Do same Bind Off at anchor yarn starting at end opposite the yarn tail.
Prepare the fringe from (2) skeins of yarn. Wrap yarn around a box or trash can that measures
approximately 24” around. Wrap entire skein of yarn. Cut, so that you have strands approximately
24” long. Place piece of tape around one end of strands. You can pull from it as you work the
Each fringe is (2) strands of yarn. Place crochet hook into edge stitch at one end.
Fold (2) strands so that they are not even. Fold in half and with crochet hook, pull the folded
loops thru the edge stitch on knitting. Pull the strands of yarn (4 once folded) thru the loop. This
will knot the fringe onto the afghan. Insert the crochet hook into next edge stitch. Proceed across
the end of afghan for about 1/3 of the edge. Move to opposite edge and work back to meet the other
completed fringe. The result will be extremely thick and luxurious.
Work opposite end of afghan with 2nd skein of yarn.
