How to Make a Tassel

The first thing that we need to do is make a tassel. There are a couple of different ways to make a tassel, but I love doing it this way. You’ll need some yarn, a small to medium size book, and a pair of scissors.

Let’s get started!

Step 1:

Wrap your yarn around the book 30 times or continue wrapping if you want a chunky tassel. The more yarn you wrap around the book, the thicker the tassel will be.

Step 2:

Gently remove the wrapped yarn of the book. Cut an additional piece of yarn and put it under the yarn that you just removed from the book ( approx.  1/2″ from the top). Once you have the yarn underneath the bunched up yarn, you want to tie a knot to secure it. This will create a loop on top (hole).

Step 3:

Finally, cut all the bottom loops and trim the yarn so it’s perfectly even.

Lastly, cut an additional piece of string and loop it through the top of the tassel. This string is used to attach the tassel to a crochet project.

Once the tassels are made for our project, its time to add them to our crochet blanket. The steps down below will explain how to attach them to a crochet blanket or any other crochet project. There’s also a guided video tutorial for extra help!

All you need for this next step is your tassel and a darning needle.

Step 1:

Insert one strand of yarn from the top of your tassel through the darning needle. This strand of yarn should be connected to the crochet blanket. The other strand of yarn should be on the side of the tassel.

Step 2:

Lastly, grab both strands of yarn and tie a couple of knots. You want to make sure that your tassel is nice and secure.

Finally, weave in your ends and cut the rest of the yarn.
