Materials: Adjustable hairpin lace loom, Crochet Hook F or 5, worsted weight yarn (16 ounces).

TO JOIN STRIPS:
ROW 1:
Join yarn in first group of first strip, ch 6, 1 sc in first ch-6 space, * ch 6, 1 sc in next ch-6 space, repeat from * across, ending ch 6, 1 sc in sc of last group, ch 6, turn.

TO FINISH OUTSIDE EDGE:  Join yarn to first group of 5 lps, ** ch 6, sc in same group, * ch 6, sc in next ch-6 space, repeat from * across row ending ch 6, sc in last group,  Ch 6, sc in same group.  Working across end, * ch 6, sc in next space.  Repeat from * across, ending with sc in first group of other side.  Repeat from ** once.  Join with a sl st.  Fasten off.

FRINGE: Using a 10-inch cardboard, wrap yarn around enough times so you have 6 strands for each ch-6 space across both short ends.  Cut yarn at one end.  With 6 strands folded in half,  pull folded end through first ch-6 space.  Now slip loose ends through folded section, and pull knot up close up to work.  Work 1 group of fringe in each ch-6 space across each end.  Trim fringe evenly.

 

*5 strips makes this incredibly wide, more like a stole. 2 or 3 is better for a scarf.
