Fringe Border:

*This is an easy process, just time consuming. Please see the photo tutorial below to guide you

*Pull up loop 4″ long, wind loop 15 times in a clockwise rotation, sl st in same st, sl st in next st*, repeat * to * all the way around the blanket. You will need to slightly smooth, pull and slightly twist counter clockwise each fringe to get a nice even twisted fringe st. = 516 Twisted fringe sts

To make a longer fringe, you will pull a longer loop up and twist a few more times. If you over wind it doesn’t look as nice, so you can play with the length of the loop and number of twists…

Congratulations, you now have a Twirly Whirly Baby Blanket… I hope you enjoy this fun and whimsical project… I fell in love with this fringe border once I got the hang of it and I think you will too!
