This tutorial is to help you add fringe to any project — crochet or knit, poncho, scarf, blanket or anything else begging for fringe! If you would like to have the pattern for the afghan shown in the tutorial you can find it here.
Large crochet hook — one that is large enough to pull all the yarn up and through but small enough to fit through the project.
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.
Don’t forget to cut the end of the yarn attached to the skein!
