Fringe

Now, take your book and wrap your yarn around it 77 times. Actually make it 80 times just for a little extra. Cute the yarn at both ends of the book. This will give you 160 strands of 9 inch yarn to use for fringe. Use one strand to add fringe to each stitch in Round 16.

Once you are complete your fringe your cowl is done and ready to go on an adventure with you!

    We went on a special trip a few states up last year, and these colors just remind me of driving through the mountains. Beautiful. Pinned, and shared this pattern!

      Thank you so much! I saw this color way and knew I had to have it even though I had to order it from Amazon (luckily it was cheaper!) I think I want to make a baby poncho out of the left over!

    I guess I might be missing something. Is the foundation row all slip stitches? It says to slip stitch to the first chain then Row 1 states ch 2 turn. I really enjoy the Mandela yarns & would love to try your pattern. I just need a little clarification. I’ve been crocheting for over 40 years & this just reads a little different to me.

      You are slip stitching to the first Chain to create a circle. Then you will chain up 2, turn and start your first row.
