Fringe:-
Cut yarn into 25cms (10 inchs) strands. Fold two strands in half and use a crochet hook to pull the fold trough one stitch in the scarf edge. Pull through just enough so that the fold forms a loop, and with the crochet hook pull the strands, from back to front, through the loop made previously, pull to tighten.
If you like you can sew a bead between the strands of the fringe.
Carefully trim fringe diagonally to create an asimmetric finish.
Repeat on other side.
