Sturdy cardboard cut into desired size

Cut a piece of sturdy cardboard to desired width.  Remember, the size of the cardboard will be the length of the fringe as the fringe is folded in half just as it is on the cardboard.

Begin wrapping yarn loosely around the cardboard.  Not too tight — it will be hard to get your scissors inserted between the cardboard and yarn to cut and it will pull the fibers of yarn and make your fringe shorter than you would like.
