How to Make a Yarn Tassel Tutorial

How to Make a Yarn Tassel Tutorial

A yarn tassel is a beautiful way to add more detail to a shawl.  The April Showers Shawl was originally designed with one skein of yarn to be joined together in the back to create a cowl.  I want to add at least one more skein to my April Showers Shawl to make larger and then add to tassels onto the end.  Since I was making these tassels for my shawl, I thought I would make a tutorial on how I made the tassels.  The tassels are super simple to make and you don't need any specialty tools to make a yarn tassel.
