We all know that fringe is a fun way to add a little flair to your finished projects.
There's more than one way to add fringe to a pattern. This week's free pattern, Dulce, has fringe that's added in finishing, using strands of yarn and a crochet hook. This method is probably the one most people are familiar with, but if you haven't done this before or just need a refresher, we have a video to help you!
You can also establish the fringe as you are knitting—with just a few dropped stitches at the end of a shawl, you can create fringe quickly and easily. The Vacanza Shawl in Berroco Medina® uses this technique, but instead of cutting the loops that are left over from dropping the stitches, they're left as loops for a twist on traditional fringe.
This week's free pattern, Dulce, is a simple shawl knit with Berroco Ultra® Wool. The shawl begins at the bottom center point and works its way up and out. Fringe is added at the very end using a crochet hook.
