How to make a Tassel

Tutorial is showing how to make a tassel.  The tassel in the image was worked with thread.  The tutorial is worked with yarn.  The thread tassel has a strap with a sheer ribbon woven through the center stitches.  There is a crochet covering the top of the tassel to give it a more finished look.

The tassel could be used as a curtain tie back or for a pull on a ceiling fan.
