Step 7: Tassle
First wind threads you like around a thick paper.
Cut one end of the threads. Now remove it from the paper and lay them straight.
Tie a knot two time at the middle. This will form the end that will be used to tie it to the crochet work. Now take another thread and at a small distance below tie a knot. Insert the crochet hook into the knot and bring down both the ends. They will now be a part of the tassel.
