How to make tassels

Tassels are great for using up left over yarn to decorate knit and crochet items such as shawls and cushions. In this post I want to share with you a video in which I use the Prym Love Tassel Maker to make tassels.



To make tassels you can off course use a piece of cardboard or a book, but the Prym Love Tassel Maker helps with the details of getting them all the same size. In the instruction video I use Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn to make the tassels. You will also need a scissor and a darning needle.

You can buy Scheepjes Stone Washed from Wool Warehouse (UK), Jimmy Bean Wools (USA), Love Crafts (USA), The Knitting Network (UK), Caro’s Atelier (NL/EU), or your local Scheepjes Stockist.

In this video below, which I have included as part of my Crochet Fundamentals series on my YouTube channel, you see how I make tassels using the Prym Love Tassel Maker.

Inspiration for using tassels

I use tassels mostly for decorating shawls, I like to add them to the tips because it make the shawl just a little bit bigger and it helps with the drape. Here you see some tassels added to my Happy Shawl.
