Finishing

Knotted fringe with beads:
Cut the remaining yarn into strands 20" long. Working with one strand at a time: fold the strand in half so that the ends are even; with the help of a crochet hook draw the middle loop of the strand through the edge of the shawl, then pass the ends of the strand rhough the loop and fasten. Make fringes 1" apart.The number of fringes should be a multiple of 4 plus 1.
Each fringe has 2 ends.

Row 1:
*Take one strand of the first and one strand of the second fringe. Insert the ends into a bead, tie a knot under the bead at about 1 1/2" from the shawl's edge.
Take the second strand of the second fringe and one strand of the third fringe. Tie a knot about 1 1/2" from the shawl's edge.
Take the second strand of the third fringe and one strand of the fourth fringe. Tie a knot about 1 1/2" from the shawl's edge. Repeat from *  to the end.

Row 2:
Take the one remaining strand from the first fringe, and one strand protruding from the first knot in row 1. Make a knot about 1 1/2" from the previous knot.
Take a strand from the first knot and one strand from the second knot. Make a knot 1 1/2" from the previous knot.
*Take one strand from the second knot and one end from the third knot. Insert the ends into a bead,and make a knot about 1 1/2" from the previous knot.
Take one strand from the third fringe and one strand from the fourth knot and make a knot about 1 1/2" from the previous knot.
Take one strand from the fourth fringe and one strand from the fifth fringe and make a knot about 1 1/2" from the previous knot.
