I have finished a scarf made from classic Paton Wool. Now I want to add the fringes..

But should I do it before or after I block my scarf?

IMO, I don't think it would matter.  Blocking is so that you open up the stitching and tame the project, IE get it flat.  So whether you add fringe before or after is up to you.

I usually add fringe after blocking.  I'm not sure if there is any reason that I do this, but it works best for me.  If I add fringe before blocking it tends to get wavier and just not look right.  hope I could help.
