INSTRUCTIONS (for one tassel)


Wrap yarn around 6" length of cardboard 100 times.


Cut 24" length of yarn, fold it in half, and thread through top of tassel and tie tightly.

Cut other end open to remove cardboard.

[Or, use a Twisted Cord to tie tassel: To create Twisted Cord, cut (2) 36" lengths of yarn; knot ends together.

Hold knotted end in one hand, and with the other hand, twist yarn until taut.

Carefully bring knotted and open ends together and allow yarn to twist around itself, pulling at bottom (center) to keep even.

Knot all ends together at top.]


Using a 2-yard length of yarn folded in half, wrap yarn around tassel tightly several times about 3/4" below top knot, and knot.

If desired, repeat about 3/4" down from first wrap.

You can vary your tassels by using two colors.

For a mixed effect, hold one strand of each color together when wrapping your tassel and only make half as many wraps.

For a two-tone effect, make half the wraps with one color and the other half next to them with the second color.

Every effort has been made to have the knitting and crochet instructions accurate and complete. We cannot be responsible for variance of individual knitters and crocheters, human errors, or typographical mistakes.
