does the fringe go all the way around or is it just on the front side

Are there any corrections for this pattern? In the increase portion I only see increase in the 1st row. Repeated 4 times more will not be 57 sts. Am I missing something?

Fringe must be in for 2018. I have seen several crochet patterns with it applied. I have never been one to buy items with fringe but I think that is cowl is really attractive with the fringe applied. Now, I guess I could give it a try and if I do not like it, I could gift it during the holidays.

This is a great beginner project. However, I would be cautious about that skill level. The directions are pretty standard but when you talk about such skills as decrease it looses it beginner status. If you are a fan of fringe, this may be the pattern to try and of course you can google all of the crochet techniques if you run into a problem.

Pattern as written says turn at end of row ch 1 beginning of row tutorial l says ch 1 and turn??????

Hi Ande, I'm not sure I understand your confusion - all this is saying is that at the end of every row you'll want to ch 1 and turn. Whether you ch and turn or turn and then ch, you're still working that chain before starting a new row which is what matters. Julia, AFC editor

This Forever Fringe Scarf is so elegant in its presentation and color. It can pass as an accessory when worn on a plain, black top. The fringes give it an elegant and forma look.

Love this fringed cowl. I dont really care for cowls because I dont like wearing anything around my neck like that, but I love the fringe on this. It screams retro boho look. I dont know how I always seem to get on the tail end of these naming contests? I seem to never find them until there is always a winner and I check this site every day for new postings.

Im not a huge fan of fringe (Im old enough to remember the Hippie days, too, Cheryl Y), but this doesnt look overwhelming. You would have to hand wash in order not to destroy the fringe though. I found the original pattern at Yarnspirations (where there is a lovely download) and B. Hooked has a great YouTube video for either the right or left handed crafter. The link for the original pattern is in her notes below the video.

I love this Forever Fringe Crochet Cowl! It reminds me of my hippy days. I so have to have one or two of these! The pattern is well written and easy to understand and follow. The added fringe will help keep my arms warm on cool nights and using a soft yarn would be better yet. I'm looking forward to making and wearing this beautiful cowl. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

Oh boy, another one to add to my future project list of to-dos! I am afraid that I am not going to be able to keep up with all these AWESOME cowl projects that I am finding here on allfreecrochet. Do I even have enough hours in my day? The design element that i like the most is the triangle shape combined with the heavy, heavy long fringe. And that sun-washed denim color is to die for.
