Pictured above is a crocheted scarf that was finished off with long, colorful strands of fringe. This fringe technique is really easy to learn, and it’s also interesting from a technical standpoint — because it serves a purpose beyond just being decorative.
If you’ve ever crocheted, or knitted, you’re no doubt familiar with the process of weaving in your ends when you are finished your projects. It’s a finishing technique that can be tedious, yet it’s a necessary part of the project.
In this case, the end-weaving was not necessary — because the ends became part of the fringe. Pretty cool, don’t you think?
Honestly, fringe is not something you want to use on every scarf, but I do think this particular scarf is much enhanced by the addition of fringe.
