Tassels:
Cut 24” lengths of yarn (or twice the desired length of the tassels) in your desired colors. In the
example I use red yarn and plain white yarn. I used 4 lengths of yarn per color but you may use
more or less depending on your desired tassel thickness. Fold the lengths of yarn in half and use
a large crochet hook to pull the yarn through the bottom of one earflap. Divide the yarn into
equal thirds and braid. Tie at the bottom and cut the ends evenly. Repeat on the opposite
earflap.
