Fringe:

Wind yarn 5 times around a 5 inch card and cut at one end. Double these 10 inch strands to make a loop. Insert a large size crochet hook up from underneath between stitches on one end of the rug and draw the loop through. Pull loose ends through loop and draw knot tight. Make a fringe between rows of stitches across both ends. Trim fringe evenly.
