I was so excited to finish this super skinny summer scarf with a dollar skein of mixed fiber yarn I found at Big Lots. It's just a series of knot stitches and double crochets but the texture and effect is really intricate. BUT.. alas... It's incomplete. HELP! What does it need? Beads? Fringe? (I hate fringe, but maybe it needs it)

Any suggestions are appreciated!

Fringey

Edging! It doesn't have to be fringe. There are a lot of nice, simple edgings you can work up the long sides of the scarf. A small ruffly edging would be nice.

Also, a big flower or something on one of the ends might be nice.

Yes, edging! Maybe a small shelll all around the outside?

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

Yes! Edging might be the thing. Why couldn't I think of that? Thanks.
So, you think edging all the way around or just one the ends?
