Tassel Time!

If youre looking to add a bit of swish to your summer projects, try adding a
tassel or two (or ten). Nicoletta Tronci finishes her Neverland Tote (page 18)
with a tassel, but you can add this on-trend embellishment to any of your
projects. You can use any weight of yarn, from fine to chubby. When your
tassel is done, use the top tied loop of the tassel to attach it to some-
thinganythingeverything! Enjoy the swish.

Tassel
Cut a piece of cardboard 4" (10 cm) wide by
the desired length of the tassel plus 1"
(2.5 cm). Wrap yarn to desired thickness
around cardboard. Cut a short length of yarn
and tie tightly around one end of wrapped
yarn (Figure 1). Cut yarn loops at other end.
Cut another piece of yarn and wrap tightly
around loops a short distance below top knot
to form tassel neck. Knot securely, thread
ends onto tapestry needle, and pull to center
of tassel (Figure 2). Trim ends.

HOW TO TIE A BOW TIE I Make Peter Franzi's Bow Tie on page 38.


Lay the bow tie around your neck with one end hanging about 1-2" lower than the other. Loop the long end of the bow tie around the short
end. Fold the short end in half to look like a bow tie. Fold the shorter end over the bow. Hold the folded short end and draw the long end
around and through the loop. Pull loops to even ends and tighten.
