Break yarn and weave in all ends. Make 16 tassels in both white and dusty rose. To make tassels, wrap the yarn around the 4” cardboard square about 50 times. Slide another piece of yarn under one end of the wrapped yarn, and tie tightly, leaving the long tail separate from the rest of the tassel. Pull the yarn off of the square, and tie another short length about ½” below the top to create the neck. Trim the ends so they form a tassel. Tie the tassels underneath every 6th even berry st, and weave all ends in securely.
