Wind a single strand of yarn around a 6” piece of cardboard. Cut at one end, making 12” long strands. Using 4 strands per fringe, fold strands of yarn in half to form a loop, insert
crochet hook through back of work, drawing loop through, then bring ends through loop and tighten. Attach one fringe to point at center back and one fringe on each side, then one fringe in end of each row along lower edges. Trim fringe evenly.
