Bind off in your favorite way.

Finishing notes: Use which ever technique you find best to weave the ends, I try different ones and I liked them all. My favorite is to make a small soft knot on the yarn joining and weave the ends, there are many techniques on weaving, but since all the joining ends will be inside the tube, I did not see the reason to go to such extent. You can leave the ends loose inside.


You should block your scarf and let it dry according to manufacturer's instructions before putting the fringe on. Make the appropriate fringe, I found that three (3) 7inch threads fold in half makes a pretty fringe, every other stitch. Weave all tails to the inside. You can use your crochet hook for that.

Nice work-looks like it will keep you plenty warm this winter. (I especially like the stripes.)

Thanks I like the Stripes myself the best. I will be working on two other ones later, Ravenclaw and Gryffindor. Slytherin maybe next year!
