GENERAL FRINGE INSTRUCTIONS

The nylon net is used as a foundation for the fringe.

Cut a piece of netting to desired length.

Fold in half lengthwise matching bottom row of squares at fold.



Cut yarn for fringe into lengths indicated.

Use crochet hook to pull yarn through net to create each fringe.

Working from left to right, leaving about 3 empty spaces, insert crochet hook from behind next space in the net.

Fold a length of yarn cut for fringe in half.

Use hook to pull folded end of yarn through the net to form a loop.

Cut off excess net above fringe so about 3/8" [1 cm] of net remains above fringe.
