Auriol Crochet – how to make a tassel

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
Tie your chain tightly around one end of the loops. This will
be the top of your tassel
Now you need to make the top of your tassel
Take a length of wool. This will covered over in your
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.

bottom peeping through.

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
