Taking 6 strands together (tog), fold in half and knot into fringe approx every 2½" [6.5 cm] evenly across rs, including 1 fringe at each corner of Blanket, noting each knotted section has 12 strands.

Skip first group. **Taking left-most group from next knotted section and right-most group from previous knotted section, wrap 1 strand of yarn around these 12 strands 6 times 1½" [4 cm] down from each knot so that wrapped yarn is centered. Knot to fasten securely.
