Fringed Halloween Hangers

Row 1: *K2, YO, k2tog; rep from * to end.

Repeat Row 1 until piece measures 2 3/4″, or desired length/

Note: The length will actually be the width of the piece as the firing will be dropped from a side edge, and not the bottom.)

Drop remaining stitches, unraveling them to create finger loops. Trim and press with a flat iron at a very low heat, if desired.


Halloween Skulls with Yarn Fringe

Half-Hitch Knot

Just plain ol’ fringe. 

Cut two strands of yarn twice the length if the desired fringe. Hild the two strands together and fold them in half. Using a crochet hook (a Size US D/3.25 mm fits easily through the hanger holes) pull the loop created by folded strands through one of the holes. Set hook aside. pish tails through the loop and tighten. Repeat for remaining holes.
