Weave all three strands through the holes made in row 7, tie on side.
Cut Ozark Opulent fringe 5 ½ inches long.
Using crochet hook, attach 2 strands of fringe to every 3rd stitch of the BO edge.
With Ozark Companion on your tapestry needle, stitch 2nd row of fringe on in the following manner 6 rows above the BO edge: Holding fringe lengthways, stitch on piece of fringe in the middle. Then fold the top ½ of fringe back down over the stitch and stitch again. Each piece of fringe will be double stitched in order to ensure security. Fringe ends up being about 2 ½ inches long doubled in this manner. Repeat around the entire warmer.

I can see these knit as wristers, poking out below the cuffs of a conservative fitted jacket (in black?) and worn with a matching scarf. Urban bad girl! Thanks for the idea!
