Rep row 3 until your shawl is the desired size. Without cutting yarn, sc around the two side edges of the the triangle. I fit 3 sc in each do space, and 9 ch in the center beginning loop. Fasten off and weave in ends.
To attach the fringe, cut 10" lengths of yarn. With a crochet hook, knot two pieces onto every third sc. One you have done that all the way around, knot two pieces from one clump with two pieces from the next one. Then repeat this step again so you have another row of knots. This will make this diamond pattern.
Hopefully this picture will show you how to knot the fringe. My finished shawl is 23" deep and 80" across the top, not including fringe.
