Loop Edge Fringe


Skill level: Easy 

Knotting tassels on a loop-edged braid is another way to make a decorative fringe. 

Cast on 4 sts. 
1st row (RS) Yo, k 2 tog, k 2. 
2nd row Slip 1, k 3. 
Repeat 1st and 2nd rows. 
Bind off. 
Cut 4 in (10 cm) lengths of yarn - two for each tassel. Double two strands. With wrong side facing, insert crochet hook in one edge loop and, hooking the fold of the strands, pull a loop through. Use the hook to pull the ends through the tassel loop. Pull the ends gently to tighten the knot.When all tassels are completed, trim the fringe.
