How to Make Knotless Fringes

Fringes are fun and they give an edgy look to a piece. Just take a look at those scarves and cowls on the internet and you’ll agree with me that the fringes on them give a kind of rustic style. So, I’ll be showing you how I make my fringes knotless for a smoother edge.

I’ve used the knotless fringes on a scarf and cowl and I’m now conjuring a design to use them on a blanket- let’s see how that fares.

This photo below shows the regular fringe. Of course, whether you decide to make your fringes knotless or regular, it’s all about how you want your finished piece to look. So, one way does not out-do the other, it’s simply a matter of preference.
