Simple Shawl with Chain Stitch Fringe
While recovering from major surgery, I needed a simple knitting project. Daughter asked for a rectangular shawl, so I made one using seed stitch. Cast on 69 stitches, then k, p, k till it was done. How's that for a no-brainer.
When it was finished, I wanted a nice edging, but I was bored with standard fringe or shell crochet, so I came up with a continuous loop fringe, using nothing but chain stitch and slip stitch -- another no-brainer.
Here's a photo of the fringe:

I'm with you - sometimes you just need a no-brainer. Yours looks great!

Oh this is so much better than loose fringe!
I will remember your tip! Thanks! I love it!

Thanks. It does take longer, however, unless you're a dynamo at crochet (which I'm definitely not).

Thank you so much for telling us this method of fringing, Suz. I want to try it on prayer shawls made with Homespun. Since it frays, each piece of fringe must be knotted. Your shawl looks lovely!

Ooo, Pam, I didn't think of that. This method might be quicker than knotting each piece of fringe.

I like that fringe! In fact, I like the shawl pattern too.
