To Fringe or Not to Fringe

Those of you scrunchable makers…did you fringe or not? I tend to feel like a scarf isn’t finished until it has been fringed but not sure about this one… :thinking:

hmmm…I suppose that is entirely a matter of personal tastes, and perhaps a matter of to what is the particular pattern suited. I tend to have a few “rules” for fringing. I do not fringe for babies or small children, for example, to avoid a choking hazzard. But for myself - FRINGE AWAY!!


EXTREME Q

Hmmm… I didn’t fringe either of the ones I made.

I’m kind of a walking disaster…I attract mess, spills, dirt, etc like Pigpen. So I never fringe my scarves. :teehee:

definetly fringe!

i’m not a fringer. instead of saving yarn for fringe i just make the scarf longer. :happydance: i love long scarves.

I’m not a fringer, either.

I’m glad we’re all helping you decide! :teehee:

I’m not a fringer, either. :shrug:

Say yes to fringe

:thud: I can’t belive you even have to ask… you love fringe and beads… and more fringe…

I say fringe… :teehee:

Just say NO to fringe

I’m knitting a scrunchable right now in Tilli Tomas Disco Lights and I am not going to fringe it.

I live on the fringe, but I don’t fringe my scarves.

:roflhard:

I’m anti-fridge. :shrug:

What have you got against cold beer? :teehee:

Okay, I give. What is this scrunchable that everyone keeps talking about? I feel so out of the loop!

I’m not a fan of fringe either. Both my scrunchables are FRINGE-FREE :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:

Meghann,

A “scrunchable” is a scarf: really easy pattern k2p1 on all rows done on a multiple of three stitches, or sl 1st stitch, k2, p1 across to last stitch k1 done on multiple of 3 + 2 (edge stitches). Most Cuddly scarf pattern I’ve ever seen! :happydance: :happydance:

I LOLed

:lol: :lol: :lol:

KK did a great alternative to fringe on one of her scrunchables.

She did a shell crochet border - I think it was 3 double crochet in 1st stitch, single crochet in next stitch, repeating across and ending with 3 double crochet in last stitch.

It made the ends quite pretty - flared them out a little - and had a nice ‘finished’ look without and fringe. There’s a picture of this scarf on Kelly’s blog somewhere around page 120 - give or take 25 pages!
