Fringe benefits

Fringe benefits

A fringe isn't just a decorative element; it's a statement. Whether you're looking to add a bit of texture or aiming for that boho-chic vibe, a fringe can be the perfect finishing touch.

This addition can transform the look of your blankets, shawls, cushions, and wall hangings, giving them a unique and finished appearance.  Here we give you the skills you need to achieve this simple technique.

1. Prepare Your Yarn: Cut pieces of yarn that are twice the length you would like the fringe to be, and fold these in half to create a loop.

2. Insert and Pull Through: From the back of the piece, insert your hook where you would like the fringe to be and pop the loop from step 1 onto the hook and pull through a little.

3. Wrap and Pull: Wrap the 2 ends of the yarn over the hook.

4. Pull the ends through the loop, right to the end.

5. Tighten and Neaten: From the right side, gently pull on the yarn ends to tighten and use your fingertips to neaten the loop.

6. Repeat and Customise: Repeat this across your piece as much as you like. Once complete, trim the fringe to your desired length or shape — straight, curved, wavy, pointed, or slanted.

To apply these techniques in a fun and creative way, check out our free Heart Wall Hanging pattern. It's an excellent project for beginners and a charming way to practice adding fringes.

For those looking for a more advanced project, our Nadir kit offers an exciting challenge. This kit can beautifully incorporate fringes, elevating the final product.

Happy Crocheting!
