Crochet Perfect Fringe

Fringing a project can be the final touches to elevate a project’s visual look. Learn how to steam and cut it.

The scarf here is using Caron Little Crafties. This yarn brand has 20 colours inside the package. I used 17 of them. I wanted the ends of the strips of colours to have a fringe to the final touches.


I am showing a steamer but you can also dampen the yarn, shape it and let it air dry to form it. It’s called blocking. You can find our article on 14 Ways to Block.


  1. Cutting the Fringe can be done faster as shown in the tutorial by measuring the distance you want and folding over the strands for the number you want instead of cutting each individual strand.
  2. Group the strands and fold them in half. Loop through the strands to lock.
  3. Once all strands are placed, lay flat and steam / dampen yarn to shape.
  4. Cut all strands at the same time across. Shake and lay flat to recheck.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    The problem with fringe is that it doesn’t wash well…comes out of washer/dryer ruined!

      That’s correct.
