To Fringe, or Not to Fringe?
...that is the question. I never know whether people would prefer a shawl with or without fringe. It depends on a person's preference, as well as the type of yarn. If it's a type of yarn that will come apart then it usually doesn't make good fringe. You can knot it, or crochet the fringe, and there are even some knitting patterns that work the fringe as you go or have you unravel a few rows around the edge of a pattern to create fringe.
Some designs look better with a decorative edging, or even just a plain, simple edge, while mod or retro styles call for that shaggy, groovy fringe.
I'd love to know...what's your style? Fringe...or no fringe?
