Choose either wet blocking or steam blocking to set your scarf straight. Whichever method you choose, be sure to pin your scarf down on a flat surface such as styrofoam mats, or a mattress, and let it dry.
Check out this resource all about knit blocking on Interweave.
Add fridge to desired length by cutting long pieces of yarn, folding them in half and looping them though each end of the scarf.
Remember that you will need to cut each strand twice the length that you want your finished fringe to be.
Fold each length of yarn in half, insert your hook into the space where you want your fringe to be.
Loop the yarn (at the fold) onto the hook, pull the hook partway through, pull the two ends through the loop, pull to secure.
