Fringe Measure and cut 108 pieces of yarn that are each 22" (56cm) long. Set these pieces of yarn aside for the fringe, which you will attach after you finish knitting the scarf.
Scarf Using the Lace Cast-On, cast on 42 stitches. Work as follows: Rows 1–6: Knit across. Rows 7 and 9: K1, [yo, k2tog] to the last stitch, k1. Rows 8 and 10: K1, [yo, p2tog] to the last stitch, k1. Repeat rows 1–10 until the scarf measures 48" (122cm) long. Knit 6 rows plain. Bind off loosely. Weave in ends.
Finishing Steam block or wet block your Scarf to the finished measurements.
Attach the Fringe Divide the 108 pieces of yarn into 18 groups of 6 strands each. You will attach 9 groups of fringe to each short end of the scarf (the cast-on and bound-off rows). To attach fringe to 1 end of the scarf, fold 1 group of 6 yarn strands in half. Using a crochet hook, pull the yarn (at the fold) about 1" (2.5cm) or so through a stitch at 1 corner. Next, pass the ends of the fringe through this loop, and pull the loop tight against the scarf edge. Repeat this process at the other corner of the scarf end. In the same manner, attach another group of yarn strands halfway between the 2 corners. You now have 3 groups of fringe attached. Attach the remaining 6 groups of yarn strands between the center and the side edges of the scarf, spacing the yarn evenly, for a total of 9 sets of fringe attached. Repeat this process at the other end of the scarf.
