Attach Tassels to Lots of Crochet Projects
Attach tassels to the end of a wrap like in my free crochet pattern the Ombre Tassel Wrap, or to the corners of a blanket like my Chunky Chevron Throw. Once you make your tassel, you just tie the tassel on where you’d like them with the two long ends. Then use a yarn needle to pull them down through the tassel and trim.
How to Tie Tassels On a Scarf
To attach to a scarf (or blanket corner) simply take the two ends and tie on to the spot where you want it to be. Make sure it is securely attached and weave in any loose ends with a yarn needle. You are now done!
How to Attach Tassels to a Pillow
Attach the same way as the scarf above, but in each corner of the pillow.
