Row 29 Knit on the round

Keep repeating round 1 -29 until you are about 3 to 4 inches of the desired length then finish the Scarf with round 1 - 22 in the Main Color

Bind off in your favorite way.

Finishing notes: Use which ever technique you find best to weave the ends, I try different ones and I liked them all. My favorite is to make a small soft knot on the yarn joining and weave the ends, there are many techniques on weaving, but since all the joining ends will be inside the tube, I did not see the reason to go to such extent. You can leave the ends loose inside.

You should block your scarf and let it dry according to manufacturer's instructions before putting the fringe on. Make the appropriate fringe, I found that three (3) 7inch threads fold in half makes a pretty fringe, every other stitch. Weave all tails to the inside. You can use your crochet hook for that.

Thanks so much I did use the DVD myself . A suggestion from my non - knitting partner. He likes to make pom poms. I too find the dvdv case makes for a great way of making the fringe. Thanks. I will okk into the three needle bind off and see.

Very nice... you do the

Very nice... you do the house of Hufflepuff proud! :-)

A couple of things I like t odo when making these scarves... I use a provisional cast on so that I can close both ends using a 3 needle bind off. I like the edge it gives and I think it makes it easier to fringe.

For making fringe I wrap yarn the long ways around a DVD case and cut both end so it is the length of the DVD case. It makes a nice length fringe.
