FINISHING

Fringe:  Cut two 22” long strands of yarn.  Put strands tog and fold in half.  With RS facing, using crochet hook, draw center of strands through cast-on st at point of shawl forming a loop.  Pull ends of strands through this loop.  In this manner, make fringe in each Garter Ridge along both side edges of shawl.  Trim to even off if necessary.

Note:  For speedier cutting, wrap yarn multiple times around a piece of cardboard that is the desired length of fringe.  Cut lower edge to free wrapped strands.
