How to make a tassel

It`s easy to make small decorative tassel to dress up hats, mittens, bags and interior. Choose the size and the material that you like. Cut a piece of cardboard into the length that you want on your tassel.

Figur 1: Start in the end and wrap the yarn around the cardboard until you get the required thickness.

Figur 2: Insert a thread between the cardboard and the yarn at the top of the tassel, pull it and make a knot to hold the tassel together.

Figur 3: When you have fasten the tassel you can remove it from the cardboard.

Figur 4: Wrap some yarn several times around at the top of the tassel approx. 1 cm from the top, this way you get a nice little head at the top.

Figur 5: Let the tassel hang from the thread at the top and cut the yarn loops at the end.

Figur 6: You now have a nice little tassel, you can adapt the length by cutting it to fit your project.

Hola Myrna, es mejor hacer las borlas con lana que con algodón. Por favor, recuerda seleccionar la opción “pregunta” en vez de “comentario” a la hora de hacer tu consulta. De esta forma, podremos ver tu comentario y contestarte antes.

Hello, I'd like to know if it's possible to make tassels out of an i-chord yarn like Drops Sky.

DROPS Design answered:

Dear Bianca, you can make tassels with every kind of yarn, the result will just look different - the video is showing with Eskimo which is thicker than Sky. Happy knitting!
