Gives the impression of lace without the work.
This gossamer wrap gives the impression of lace without the work of making increases, decreases, and yarn overs. You can achieve this effect by using a simple garter stitch and alternating three yarns, each with a beautiful and unique texture. The self fringe is created leaving a tail of yarn as you change yarns every other row.

With Yarn A CO 86 sts leaving a 6" tail.
<b>Note:</b> Leave a 6" tail as you change yarns every 2 rows, on the same side. This will create a fringe on one side of the shawl.
Work yarns every 2 rows in following order:
Rows 1-2: Knit with A.
Rows 3-4: Knit with B.
Rows 5-6: Knit with A.
Rows 7-8: Knit with C.
Rows 9-10: Knit with B.
Rows 11-12: Knit with A.
Rows 13-14: Knit with B.
Rows 15-16: Knit with C.
Rows 17-18: Knit with B.
Repeat rows 5-18 one more time.
<i><b>next row:</b></i> Attach Yarn A, leaving a 6" tail. Knit 2 rows.
Attach Yarn C leaving 6" tail, BO all sts except for last 6.
Pull the yarn through the stitch on the right needle and make a knot, and leaving your last 6 sts unknit. Pull the needle out and unravel last 6 sts. You will have 6" loops. Cut them in half to make the fringe for the second side of your shawl.
Fold shawl in half and seam with a mattress stitch along the BO edge, matching points A and B and leaving 14" for neck opening.
Block lightly to straighten the unraveled fringe.
