Newbie question - how do i make fringe?

I just started learning to knit this week, and have a question for when I finish my beautiful little scarf. How do you make/attach fringe to the end of a project like a scarf or poncho?? Thanks.

Here ya go!

:smiley: Hi! here is a scarf pattern with fringing directions with it; just scroll down the page about 1/2 way for the directions :wink:

I have a fringe question. Does anyone have any alternate ideas about making fringe. I find that I don’t like the look of “regular” fringe with some yarns. It just looks too frayed or messy. :shock:
