Fringe Method

For a 2-coloured scarf, cut 3 pieces of yarn in each colour measured 24cm long (for a 3-coloured scarf, you will need 2 pieces of each yarn). This will create one loop. Cut enough yarn for 8 loops. To form the fringe, take the strands and fold the yarn in half to make a loop. Using a crochet hook or latch hook, draw the loop through the knitted fabric of your scarf and then draw the ends through the loop. Pull the fringe knot tight. Evenly space knots across the base of the scarf and you are done! Note: the amount of strands will depend on the thickness of the yarn you use.

Time to rug up, head out for some family fun and catch a game!
