Finishing

Weave in all ends.

Wash and wet block to size.

Fringe

Cut 100 9” lengths each of CC and MC yarns.

Starting at center of shawl with RS facing, take 4 lengths of CC yarn and fold in half, hold them at the back of the shawl edge. Insert crochet hook from front-to-back between the two purl ridges at the shawl edge and pull the folded 4 strands approximately 1” to the RS of the shawl. Pull the cut ends through this loop and pull snug to tighten fringe. Rep at 6-st intervals along the shawl edge, alternating clusters of MC and CC yarns.

Once all fringe clusters are attached, trim edges.
