Crochet a fringe curtain

At a mall store last week, I noticed the use of a fringe curtain as divider for the store display. The yarn looked familiar, though I don't know what kind it is. I have some that I bought at Dreams shop in Makati a few years ago. It was inexpensive and didn't have a label. The characteristic of this yarn that makes it very nice to use for a curtain is that it remains straight even when you've worked with it, and the ends don't fray (very important!)
To make a room divider or even just a small curtain I think would use up a lot of the yarn, but I think its worth it...haven't decided exactly what to make so I've been looking for some ideas.
Look here's a sample of a ready-made fringe curtain, sold online:

It looks so simple to make, just crochet the top part, then attach the fringe :)
I made a tiny sample with the yarn that I have:

It will look better with more fringe, but you get the idea ;)
Wish I could get more of the yarn, in the color that matches my room...Anyone know what's it called and where to buy it?? Maybe I could go to Dreams again or to Divisoria, either way it would be an expensive and time-consuming trip :p


  1. That's what I love about crochet, being able to make your own things. :) (Unless it gets too expensive..) I hope you can find the yarn you need. (Sorry I have no idea what kind it would be, though..)

  2. Thanks Tina, I'll just bring a sample of the yarn when I go shopping ;)
