FIN­ISH­ING

Hold 2 halves with RS tog and marked sc in up­per right-hand cor­ner. With tapestry nee­dle and match­ing color yarn and start­ing with marked sc, sew edges tog for 1 inch. Twist halves around each other, pin­ning at each ca­ble cross­ing, un­til ca­bling is com­plete. Hold be­gin­ning chain edges tog. With tapestry nee­dle and match­ing color yarn, sew tog for 1 inch beg from lower edge. Work­ing along 1 long outer edge, sl st in each st. Rep along other long edge. Re­move pins. For Fringe, cut 12 12-inch strands; hold 2 strands of fringe tog, then fold in half. Hold scarf with RS fac­ing you. Use cro­chet hook to draw folded end through sp or st in end of sc row from RS to WS

(see il­lus­tra­tions A and B), pull loose ends through folded sec­tion

(see il­lus­tra­tion C) and draw knot up firmly (see il­lus­tra­tion D). Add fringe in end of each sc row across each short edge. CW

Cro­chet two skinny scarves and then twist them to­gether to cre­ate this un­usual scarf. Us­ing a long-strip­ing yarn re­ally shows off this de­sign to its best ad­van­tage.
