To ply a fringed edge:

  • Decide on the number of strands to be included and divide them into two groups.
  • Clamp one group each into the clips, and holding the wooden crank in the center, turn crank clockwise until it kinks.
  • Holding the ends of each group, remove them from the clips.
  • Put both groups in one hand and secure the end of the bundle with an overhand knot.
  • Release the bundle to allow the groups to twist around each other counterclockwise.
