Continuing with MC, ch 1 sc across length of scarf. At corner, 3 sc in 1 st and then sc in each st across width, 3 sc in 1 st at corner, sc across length of scarf, 3 sc in 1 st at corner, sc across width and 2 sc in corner, join to beginning ch 1 and fasten off.
Cut 28 nine-inch strands of each color yarn (84 strands total). Gather two strands of each color, fold in half, forming a loop at one end. Using a crochet hook, draw the loop through the stitch you’re attaching the fringe to (for this scarf you will be placing fringe evenly across the width in 7 places). Draw the loose ends of the yarn through the loop and pull tightly. Repeat until there are 7 groups of fringe at the beginning and the end of the scarf. Trim with scissors.
