I want to make this scarf which can be seen here with a corckscrew fringe added. Anyone know how to do this?
What other fringe options are out there besides the regular "hangy yarn strands" that we see so much? Any ideas?
Corkscrew fringe is worked separately then attached.
The length of the fringe will depend on the yarn weight and number of stitches you cast on. Start by casting on on 25 sts, just to learn what happens, then experiment.
Row 1: (Knit into the front , the back and the front again)
in each stitch. You are making 3 stitches in every
Row 2: Bind off all sts as if to purl.
Use your fingers, or a pencil to twist each tassel into a corkscrew. Hope this helps.
I have been knitting for just one month. However, I went to the yarn store and bought a little kit for a hat/booties, and the hat had a corkscrew on it's top and I was quite proud for figuring out the directions all by myself! The directions I had was to cast on 25, then knit in the front and back of every stitch and then bind off on the third row. It did indeed make what I called a pigtail, which I think coiled around 4x. Believe me, when I was done, I was doing the happy dance! :D
