Fringe Tutorial

Hi there!

Do you like the look of fringe but don’t know how to make it? Or do you know how but wish you could do it a little faster? Then this tutorial is for you!

Today, I’m going to show you my quick method for cutting strands of fringe and attaching them to your project.

Following the photo tutorial is a video tutorial, just in case you need to see it in action.


  • Determine your drop length: the length you want your finished fringe to be, measured from the point of attachment to the tips.
  • Use a piece of cardboard, or some other item, that is the same length as your desired drop length.
  • Want a bulkier fringe? Add more strands! Want a thinner fringe? Remove a few!
  • When you’re ready to attach your fringe, it may help to use a large hook

See, that wasn’t too bad, right? Want to take it to the next level? Try working a lattice knot fringe! (See the picture below!) You can find my tutorial for that here!

I hope you liked this tutorial! Let me know if you tried it!

Until next time!

    hello, thank you for the great video and photo tutorial. i couldn’t find a supplies list, how do i know which yarn or material to use for the fringe? i’m going for a natural boho vibe, not like the shiny fringe of victorian era tassels, for the bottom of a shower curtain. thanks!

      Hi Gretchen! That requires a bit of math. It depends entirely on the length you want your fringe to be and how full, ie the more strands of fringe you use, the fuller it is. If you want your drop length from Step 1 to be 6″, then each full wrap around will be 12″. If you need a total of 10 fringe groups to apply to your shower curtain, for example, and you like the fullness of 5 strands in each group, you’ll need a total of 50 strands for all 10 fringe groups. At 12″ long per strand, that’s 12″ x 50 strands = 300″ of yarn. Convert 300″ to yards, and you’ll need 300″/36″ = 8.3 yds. I hope this helps!
