Is fringing basically sewing up the raw edges using thick thread? It looks really cute on you though! Nice tutorial ^^

You must fringe it because other way they will rip while you'll be sewing it. You might chose not to... Sorry, English is not my native...
"good eyes" - that's how we call the good side of the knitted sweater :D

Fringe it? Why?? I don't understand why you'd mess up the sides you're planning to sew.

Place the "good eyes" facing you? These instructions are a little rough.

I think CountessAudronasha meant fringing, as in, sewing up the raw edges (that will be on the inside) using thick thread, like another way of overlocking, just on knit instead. Hope that makes it clearer? ^^
