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.

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

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!
