To make the tassel
Cut a piece of cardboard 4 inches by 3 inches. If you prefer a longer tassel then cut a longer piece of card, the length of the card determines the length of the tassel. Wind the white dk yarn around the cardboard approximately 30 times.


Using a long piece of white yarn, thread through the top and tie in a knot. These two yarn ends will be used to attach to the hat.


Remove yarn from card and wrap a length of yarn, a couple of times round the tassel about an inch from the top. Secure with a knot.


    
Loose the two yarn ends in the top of the tassel.



Trim the ends of the tassel and attach to the hat.
