10 x 10 cm = 14 stitches and 19 rows in knit stockinette stitch

Making the scarf

Cast on 98 stitches and knit stockinette stitch by slipping the first stitch on each row, without knitting it.

When piece measures 200 cm cast off all sts.

Block your work (and prevent it from rolling away), pinning it at its final dimensions (70 x 200 cm) on a terry towel.
Moisten with a generous spray of cold water and let dry.

Make the fringes by cutting strands of wool of L 44 cm.
Fold them in 4 and tie together every 2 stitches at each end of the scarf.

The good idea : have fun making the fringes in another tone of the same yarn.

How to make bangs

With the hook, take 2 strands of 40 cm long and fold them in half. Pass the loop thus formed through the edge of the knitting, pass the ends of the threads through the loop and pull hard. Repeat identically along the ends of the beginnings and ends of the scarf.
