Continue until scarf has 15 stripes and measures approx. 180 cm / 71’’ (make sure to stop after a whole stripe).
Loosely bind off.

Cut 3 lengths in each color, 32 cm / 13’’ each.
Place them double and thread loop through English rib sts on cast-on edge and bind-off edge and thread ends through loop and tighten. Make 1 fringe for each English rib st = 7 fringes in each end of scarf.
To make the fringes hang nicely on scarf they should be moistened, shaken and dried before they are tied on.
