DIY Fringe Sweater - Home & Family

Orly Shani is showing you how easy it is to add some flair to your sweater with fringe.

Directions

1) Plan out how you want your finished sweater to look (make a sketch if that helps) and plan out your color chunks and what angles you want to cut into the yarn at the end.


2) Cut your yarn pieces double the length you want them to hang (with a little extra for safety).

3) If you aren't sure what angles you want to cut into your yarn, just make them all extra long and decide after you've attached your yarn lines.


4) To weave into the sweater, push your hook away from you and up through a horizontal sweater thread. Loop the middle of your yarn string around the hook

5) Pull your hook back through the horizontal sweater thread towards you about 1", or so you have a 1" loop. Place the tails of your yarn down through the loop and pull to tighten the knot.

6) Just keep doing that motion across the sweater as far as you want to go and switch yarn colors as needed.

7) When you're done with your blocks of color, use your scissors to trim off the ends of the yarn to create either a straight line or an angled line. If you do an angled line, cut the first and last string to the right height, then cut the middle string to be a length between those two, and then keep cutting each strand longer or shorter from the middle outwards.

8) If you make a mistake or continue your line too far, you can simply pull out the yarn and start again.
