How much yarn do I need for fringe?

What to do?

How long should a blanket fringe be?

I think these are generally personal choices. What I like to do (for scarves and shawls) is to allow from ten to twelve inches unwoven warp at the beginning and end of each piece (usually secured by hemstitching or by a few picks in a contrasting color that I remove if I’m sure I’m going to make a twisted fringe).

THIS IS FUNNING:  Does it matter which way you yarn over in knitting?
