Adding Tassells:(If desired)

Start by cutting 140 yarn pieces at approximately 4 inches each.

Take 4 pieces of yarn evenly together. Fold in half. Draw centre through (from front to back) bottom of an outside 'scale'(scale at beg and end of ea row). Use hook to hook 'ends'.

Pull ends through loop. Adjust, and pull loop tighter.

Repeat down both sides.
