My son wanted a fringed scarf for his girlfriend's birthday. So he searched around and came up with one...but it was knitted. It was triangular and had a very open stitch and lots of fringe that fell down in front. I set out to create something similar with my hook.
I started with a N hook and a ball of yarn that he picked out from the craft store. Lion Brands Heartland in Great Smoky Mountains. (Not the Thick and Quick). It's really pretty. It's black with silver undertones. Its very soft and has a drape similar to Simply Soft, with a bit more body to it. This project only took one ball so I will be making another tonight. I used a 6" x 8" notebook to wrap the yarn around to make the fringe. My scarf ended up being about 62" wide minus the pompoms on the corners.

Row 2) Turn, chain 3, SC in second Ch1 space from the hook. *Ch1, DC in the next Ch1 space*. Repeat *-* across until 2 Ch1 spaces. Ch1, skip a Ch1 space and SC in the last Ch1 space.
Repeat row 2 until one or two Ch1 space are all that remain. Fasten Off.
Making the Fringe! Wrap the yarn around the side of a notebook or dvd box (or something similarly sized) about 100-200 times. Cut the yarn in one place. Cut just a few strands at a time and work across them. So you have lots of twelve inch yarn strands.
I attached eight strands in each edge chain space along the edge of the pointy side of the triangle scarf. More or less is fine. I have attached as few as 4 strands on the gray one below and it looks just as fun. I was running low so I did not take it all the way to the tips on the gray shawl, either. I stopped 2/3 of the way up. You can see it in the picture on the left.
Making the Tassels! On the ends I attached 10 of the strands through the corner spaces. I took another stranded and wrapped it around the tassel strands at a point about one inch from the fold over point. I wrapped it about 10 times, then tied the ends together in a square knot. Then I use my crochet hook to work the two knotted stands into the rest of the tassel.
Here is a great video about making tassels. Instead of making it on the string...make it on the end spaces of the scarf. The rest is the same.
|Izzy is showing that the yarn is super soft and snuggly. And that he is a ham. And that he has lost is two top teeth. :)|
I hope you try the pattern! It was fast and fun and would be GREAT for a going back to school gift or even those of you that are already Christmas crafting. You are guys are my hero.
