Rep Rows 2 and 3 un­til 2 sts rem. Bind off. Weave in ends. Note: The bind-off edge is the bot­tom tip of shawl.

Fringe

Cut ap­prox 210 (14-inch) strands of B.

For each fringe: Hold 3 strands tog and fold in half. Use cro­chet hook to pull folded end through space or stitch from right side to wrong side. Pull loose ends through folded end, and then draw knot up firmly to tighten.

Re­fer­ring to di­a­gram, place first fringe at 1 side (point A). Make fringe knots about ev­ery 11/2 inches along edge, mak­ing sure a fringe is po­si­tioned at the bot­tom tip (point B); pro­ceed along the other side of the shawl in the same man­ner to the op­po­site side (point C).
