Cut 3 strands of yarn each 8 inches long for each fringe.
Hold 3 strands together and fold in half.
Use crochet hook to draw fold through edge of piece, forming a loop.  
Pull ends of fringe through this loop.
Pull to tighten.
Make fringe in center of last row.
Make an equal number of fringes spaced between each purl ridge along both side edges.
Trim fringe evenly.

I used size 9 knitting needles - started with circular and when the stitches were manageable changed to straight needles.

The yarn is Bernat Pop
Interesting color name - Lipstick On Your Collar 🙂

This was a fun project and I look forward to making more.
