Crochet Tassel

This crochet tassel, often called crocheted tassel, is a very useful little affair, easily made, and very desirable to ornament fancy bags, scarfs, lambrequins, etc.

Use “Brainerd & Armstrong’s” Crochet Silk, or if a still harder twisted silk is wanted use Victoria Purse Twist. No.2 crochet hook.

To make a tassel the size of the engraving, lap the silk twice around cardboard 5 inches long.

Work 25 stitches around the hank or skein from center to outside, forming the top of the tassel, join, turn, chain 3, take up second stitch of 25 with short crochet, chain 1, take up fourth stitch, and so on making 13 holes, turn, chain 3, go into every hole making 13 holes in that row, with single crochet stitch and chain 1 between, turn, fasten in first hole, chain 4, take first and upper part of stitches and fasten in first hole with single crochet, chain 1, fasten in second hole, chain 4 and take up the first and upper part of last stitch, fasten, chain 1, and continue, making 13 points.
