Knotted Fringe Instructions and Video

How to Make Knotted Fringe

Knotted Fringe

Knotted Fringe gives your project a classier more upscale look. These are often added to shawls, purses and even blankets and bed spreads. In Indian culture  it’s called Kuchu or Kuchchu and you will often see them on Sarees, the traditional highly decorative dress.

I created this under 5 minute video to show you how to add the technique quickly and easily. For those of you that like written instructions, you will find them below.


1.Add your fringe to your project. That is considered the first row of knots.

2. Going from left to right we will be working with 2 fringes at a time.

3. Take all the strings from the left edge and half from the fringe to the right. Tie them together.

4. Move to the next set.

5. Take half from the fringe on the left and half from the right and tie them together.

6. Repeat to til the other end.

7. At the other edge take half from the left and all from the right. Tie them together.

You just finished row 2.

On row three the edges are done like the rest of the project by splitting the strings in half.

If you want to continue with more rows start with step 2.

Last but not least, share your completed works of art with our Facebook Family or by email to,


To Add Beads

Here is a cool addition to an already awesome technique. Add beads to add texture and color !

If you project is a wearable keep in mind how you will be caring for your fabric and beads. I would recommend always hand wash and drip dry.

Now here is the how to – Just feed the strings through the beads before you tie the knot. The knot should be bigger then the hole or the bead will slip out.

Needless to say that you need to keep in mind the size of the hole on the beads when making the decision on the number of strings and which beads to choose.

As with all projects that I video I recommend watching this one from beginning to the end before attempting the Knotted Fringe .

    Hi Denise I really like this this video it comes out nicely . But I have a question that may be dumb but to get the fridges on say the end of a scarf you then would then take your crochet hook and then loop in through the end of the scarf to make the fringe strings right ? Then you follow the instructions on how to make the knots and how to add the beads I hope I am asking it the right way
