Fold them double and pull loop through first st on cast on edge, pull the yarn ends through the loop and tighten. Tie 2 and 2 strands (1 strand Bomull-Lin and 1 strand Cotton Viscose) tog into a little knot at the bottom. This is done so that the ends do not split. Fasten 1 fringe in approx. every 4th st along the entire cast on edge.

TIES:
Cut 2 strands in Bomull-Lin and 2 strands in Cotton Viscose of 70 cm / 27½'', twine them hard, fold them double and they will twine again. Tie 1 knot approx. 10 cm / 4'' from strand ends so that there are fringes at the end. Pull the end that was folded on the tie through piece inside the edge st along front band on one front piece, a couple of cm / inches below the beg of dec for neck, open the folded loop and pull the yarn ends with fringes through loop and tighten.
