===>Always leave tails at the beginning and end of rows. DO NOT join colors. Instead, simply draw up next color for last yo of the last st in the row. These yarn tails will become the fringe on the finished piece.
starting with Row 2, all stitches will be through 2 loops
C1 = color 1
C2 = color 2
with C1; ch to desired length
Row 1: with C2; hdc across
Row 2: with C1; ch 1, (hdc in front loops only of prev. hdc row, and in un-used loops of beg. ch) across
Row 3: with C2; ch 1, (hdc in front loops only of prev. hdc row, and in un-used loops of prev. row of same color
rep Row 3 alternating colors, until desired width
Final Row: working through 2 loops as in prev. rows, sc across
DO NOT finish off.
tie yarn tails in small groups (2 - 4) and trim to equal length to form fringe.
