  • FINISHING:
  • Place markers on last rnd, referring to Diagram, as follows: Place a marker in any ch-2 sp, sk next fourteen 2-sc groups for neck opening, place a marker in next ch-2 sp, sk next eleven 2-sc groups on both sides of neck markers for shoulders, place a marker in next ch-2 sp, sk next ten 2-sc groups from both shoulder markers for armholes, place a marker in next ch-2 sp, sk next five 2-sc groups from both armhole markers for sides, place a marker in next ch-2 sp, there will be 42 sc-groups between the side markers.
  • Hold Front and Back with RS tog and markers matching. Working through both thicknesses, join yarn with a sl st in first marked ch-2 sp of one of the shoulders, sl st in each st and ch across to next marked ch-2 sp, sl st in marked ch-2 sp. Fasten off and remove markers. Rep to join other shoulder seam and both side seams.
  • Fringe
  • For each fringe, cut 3 strands of yarn, each about 9" (23 cm) long. Hold strands tog and fold in half. With crochet hook, draw fold through ch-2 sp on lower edge, forming a yarn loop. Pull ends of strands through this loop and tighten. Make a fringe in each ch-2 sp around lower edge. Trim fringe ends evenly.
