Weave in ends.
Cut 14” strands and folding in half. Multiple such strands are held together for each fringe (I used 3 strands). The crochet hook is inserted from the wrong side to pull a loop of the folded yarn. The ends are evened out and are drawn through the loop and pulled tight. This gives a neat look to the fringe join.
