Make up

Stitch the two side edged together so that the scarf is inside out now turn to the right side and either stitch across the bottom or close in the bottoms by making a fringe using a crochet hook and pulling green thread through.

This is done by looping the thread and pulling it through the stitches of the scarf then pull the two ends through the loop pull tight to  secure, continue all the way across.
