How to make the tassel for the crochet summer clutch

Using cardboard cut out a 10 cm / 3.9" high rectangle. start wrapping the thread around the cardboard until you reach the desired thickness, in this example we have wrapped it around 15 times.

Insert a thread between the card and the thread at the top of the tassel, pull it and tie a very tight knot to hold the tassel together.

At this point the cardboard can be removed.

Wrap a little thread of yarn on top of the tassel around 2 cm / 0.8" from the top, this way you will create a small head at the top.

Cut the eyelets that are on the other side of the head.
