  3. Rows 2-8: Ch 2, hdc tbl across row.
  4. Fringe: Cut 32 strands of yarn approx. 10”/25cm long. With two strands held together, fold in half and use the crochet hook to draw the folded loop through the end of one row of the scarf. Pull the ends of the strand through the loop and tighten to secure. Rep with other strands at the sides of each row on both ends of scarf.
  5. You can incorporate the tail ends of the scarf into the fringe so that you don’t have to weave them in.

A little note...

The ch 2 at beginning of each row does not count as a stitch. Happy stitching!
