Emily Explains: How-To Make Twisted Fringe

Sometimes it’s fun to see what can happen when you just play with yarn. A few months ago, I was designing this way – knitting and mixing lots of colors, while working out a pattern in mind for a playful accessory. Ultimately I was left with dozens of colorful ends. I really dislike weaving in ends, especially when doing colorwork. And that’s when I realized that it was a perfect opportunity NOT to weave in the ends at all! Instead, I twisted them, ending up with lots of colorful fringe all over the necklace.

As you can maybe tell, I love using twisted fringe as much as I can (seen here in our recent free pattern, Lambie).

Twisted yarn is an easy and cute technique that may be useful in your upcoming knitted piece.

Want to learn how? Grab two strands of yarn and follow along…

I hope you end up enjoying this technique as much as I do.

Happy Creating!
