Specialized Knitting Techniques

Cut a piece of cardboard half as long as specified in instructions for strands plus 1/2 inch for trimming. Wind yarn loosely and evenly around cardboard. When cardboard is filled, cut yarn across one end. Do this several times then begin fringing. Wind additional strands as necessary.

Single Knot Fringe

Use crochet hook to draw folded end through space or stitch indicated from right to wrong side. Pull loose ends through folded section. Draw knot up firmly. Space knots as indicated in pattern instructions.
