This is the last round.  The fringe is then put on thus:  wind your cotton (No. 4) twelve times round a card about 2-1/4 inches wide; slip it off, catch up the threads with a crochet-hook, and draw through one of the loops of 4 chain in the last round.  When half-way through, pass the other ends through the loop; draw it up tightly, and cut the ends.  Repeat this for every loop of 4 ch., and the fringe is complete.
