Pattern shared: Fringe

I was digging through my collection of designs and found "Fringe". Knit it--fast, easy and fun.
Please note, all the patterns I share on this blog are designed by me.


Yarn: one ball hemp/wool blend or any suitable worsted weight yarn.
Knitting needles: 6 mm/US 10/UK 4
Gauge: 16 stitches x 20 rows = 4 inches (10 cm)

1 x 1 stitch (over even number of stitches)
Row: knit one, purl one--to end of row
Repeat row for pattern

Cuffs
Cast on 30 stitches
Work in 1 x 1 rib stitch for 6 inches (15 cm) or desired length
Cast off loosely in pattern. Sew seam. Add fringe.

Collar
Cast on 72 stitches
Work in 1 x 1 rib stitch for 6 inches (15 cm) or desired length.
Cast off loosely in pattern. Sew seam. Add fringe.

How to make fringe:



Cut 132 fringes 12 inches (30 cm) long.




Use a darning needle to thread the fringe.




For best results, thread each edge one at a time. Then turn your work and continue.









For an even fringe, thread into every second stitch.






I thread 30 fringes into each cuff, 72 into the collar.



Happy knitting!
