Step 1: Buy FabricPurchase 3.25 yards of your favorite fleece (60" wide) - I found mine at Hancock Fabrics for $2.75/yd + 25% off coupon.
NOTE: You're going to use 3 yards of it, but most fabric is not on grain when you purchase it, so I always get 1/4" more for grain adjustment
Step 2: Lay out FabricLay your fabric out cut edge to cut edge. This gives you a corner to work from that is 1 side fold and 1 side selvedge that is at least 54" long from the corner.
Step 3: Measure & MarkMeasure from the corner (the corner of fold and selvedge edge) out 54" and begin marking ticks in a semi circle using tailor's chalk or washable marker/pen (see image).
Step 4: Measure & MarkMeasure from the corner (the corner of fold and selvedge edge) out 30" and begin marking ticks in a semi circle using tailor's chalk or washable marker/pen (see image).
Step 5: FringeStart cutting 1/2" to 3/4" thick fringe pieces from the 54" line to the 30" line - through both layers of fabric. Since you are working on a curved edge, about every 6-7 pieces you will be cutting away excess fabric (see the triangular gaps shown in the image) to keep the fringe following the curved edge.
OPTIONAL: If you would like to hem the selvedge, cut away about 3/4" from the fringe area so you can roll the selvedge over & hem it. I didn't care for the selvage edge, so I hemmed mine.
Step 6: Knotting FringeNow it's time to tie the fringe. You take 3 pieces (1,2,3) on one edge and place them over the next 3 pieces (4, 5, 6), and tie them to the following 3 pieces (7, 8, 9). Next you take your pieces you crossed over (4, 5, 6) and place them over pieces 7, 8, 9, and tie them to pieces 10, 11, 12. Continue this pattern all the way around.

This one is warmer than my knit one I did in turquoise - which works great South Texas winter :-)
