    putting fringe on scarves

    Hey,

    I am knitting a scarf with acrylic with the wavy pattern from Knitty.com.

    http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTwavy.html

    It actually looks better than the one pictured - the yarn I have is kind if like chenille, so the wavy pattern is very subtle and understated, unlike the geometetric look of the one in the photo. Itlooks super classy. I will post a pic soon.

    I think I want to add some fringe to the ends, to make it ultra-feminine. Anyone have any suggestions for a "method"? I was thinking about just taking 3 or 4 pieces of yarn twice the length I want the fringe, folding in half, pulling the loop though the scarf with a darning needle, and then pulling the ends through the loop to attach. Is there a better way? How much fringe is too much? I was thinking like 5" long when done ... How many strands of yarn in each fringe, would you say?

    I'm ready for a fringing' debate!!!

    This is how I've always made fringe. I usually put one fringe loop (one piece of yarn) through each stitch, so then it ends up with double the fringe. The good thing about the loop method is that you can add and remove as you please.
