However you want to spell them - tassel, tassels, tassle, tassles, borlas - these are so much fun to make. I like using embroidery floss and yarn, but you can also use string, jute, ribbon or any kind of cording to make these.
 
Check out the written pattern below, and most especially, view my YouTube video tutorial for how to make these!
 
Materials:
Several skeins of embroidery floss. For practicing, select 2 skeins for each tassel.
If you are making a yarn tassel, you'll need less than 25 yards of worsted weight yarn. Feel free to use any weight yarn, such as sock weight or even super bulky weight!
Scissors - preferably good sharp ones
Yarn needle (optional)
Comb (optional)
 
Instructions for a Basic Tassel:
Step 1: Take 1 skein of embroidery floss (leave on the labels) and lay it on the table. Cut 12" of floss from the second skein of embroidery floss (you can remove the labels on this one).
Step 2: Wrap, tie, and knot the 12" piece of floss around the center of the embroidery floss skein on the table. You can place another knot near the top of these strands to serve as a hanging loop.
Step 3: Bend that skein in half, and cut another 12" piece of floss from the second skein.
Step 4: Wrap, tie, and knot the 12" piece of floss an inch or so down from the top knot around the entire tassel. Optional: take your yarn needle, thread the ends, and insert them down into the tassel where you can't see them.
Step 5: Remove the labels, and cut the loops from the bottom of the tassel. Trim as needed to even them out.
Step 6: You can fluff out the tassel with a comb. Check out the video for variations on this basic tassel!
