How to make a tassel

  1. 1. The first stage of making your tassel is to wind wool around a book. The width of the book will set the size of your tassel A paperback make a tassel the ideal size for a cushion. Auriol Crochet – how to make a tassel
  2. 2. Step 2 Carefully slide your big loops off the paperback It’s important to keep the loops together, don’t let them cross over Make a chain. This will be seen on the finished tassel so make sure you use the wool you want in your finished tassel. You can use the same colour as your tassel or a contrasting colour Tie your chain tightly around one end of the loops. This will be the top of your tassel
  3. 3. Step 3 Now you need to make the top of your tassel Take a length of wool. This will covered over in your finished tassel. Tie it around the tassel, down from the top by around 1 to 2 inches (2.4 to 5 cms) Now cut through the bottom loops of your tassel. Use a pair of sharp scissors to get a straight edge.
  4. 4. Step 4 Now you need to trim your tassel Place the top of your tassel into a book with the bottom peeping through. Doing this will enable you to tidy up the bottom of your tassel. Use sharp scissors to get a clean edge
  5. 5. Step 5 Now you are going to cover the head of the tassel. Doing this creates a lovely finish and a more professional looking tassel Thread a large needle with some wool. I’ve used a contrast so you can see the effect, but I often do this to pick out colours from your cushion and it looks very nice. It is very important that you don’t cross over the strands of the head of the tassel. Fasten your thread around the tassel on top of the tie you made in step 3. You are going to go down through the head of the tassel and up and around of the side of the tassel. Keep your threads tight together so none of the strands of the original head of the tassel show through
