How do you slip the stitches? I have tried both knitwise and purlwise and find I am unable to knit the second stitch of the row, which disappears into a simple yarnover......

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide:0

Has anyone clarified how to make the fringe?

Yes, just read the instructions. It says to just drop those last 3 stitches -- just take them off the needle, and let them unravel. Yes, scary... but fun! Those loops will form the fringe. Don't worry, the other stitches won't come apart! Very simple!
