Knit Fringed Cowl for Barbie -Free Pattern (Crochet Friendly Too)

I'm grateful for inspiration any time I find it, and this fringed cowl for Barbie is a loose interpretation from Fiber Flux Crochet Blog. I happened to knit mine, but it's such a small and simple project you can easily use either (and I may break out my crochet hook next:@) What I love about this the most is, it's a great starting point... Want it longer and to drape more? Add more stitches and rows. Want the fringe thicker? Add two strands of yarn to each bottom hole. Want to add beads or knot the yarn in the fringe? Yep, that would be fun too! This is a great project to help a girl learn to knit or crochet, and I'm sure she'll want a few in different colors for her doll!

What I did:
Size 10 knitting needles and baby or sport weight yarn
Cast on 20
Garter stitch 8 rows (all knit stitch)
Bind off
Closure choices: You can tie two pieces of yarn to the top corners so it can be tied behind the doll's back, sew on a snap, or (my favorite) glue a very small piece of velcro to each side of the top corners.

Fringe: Use the bound off edge close to the neck, it will be shorter.
Cut 3"-5" pieces of yarn. Poke small crochet hook through the back of the lowest loop of the cowl. Fold yarn in half, grab center and gently pull it through the loop. Hook the two loose ends of yarn and guide them through the hole of yarn on the crochet hook. Gently snug up to the bottom of the cowl (the idea is, you don't want to stretch that bottom loop of the knitting). Trim the fringe to the desired length, I left mine pretty long.

Barbie says,
she's feeling rather... groovy!
And I think one in a rainbow of colors would really be cool😎
