Urban Reflection CAL Week 4: Border and Blocking

How To Make Tassels or Fringe

This is a photo tutorial that will show you how to make either tassels or fringe for the edge of a crochet or knit accessory. The photos are from the tassels that I made on the Chevron Love Super Scarf but the same method can be applied to making fringe along the edge of a scarf, shawl or other accessory.

Take the yarn you want to use for the tassel, fold it in half and pull the loop through the designated stitch.

Pull the tassel ends through the loop.

Pull the tassel ends until the loop is tight and secure. Trim the tassel ends so that they are even.


  1. It sounds scary for me... However, since fringe decorations and tassels can be added as fun finished edging to any knitted item, I really appreciate this hint!

    1. You're welcome! It's really not that tricky once you get the hang of it.

  2. A good idea of decorating such a scarf. The main thing is that he does not untangle after fixing the yarn in this way

  3. Thank you for this idea, because for a very long time I can not decide what to decorate my scarf for.

  4. The author is right to say that this is a topic that needs discussing in greater detail. But the scarf decoration is very cool.

Chevron Love Afghan

Let's get ready to CHEVROOOON!!! Woohoo!!! This pattern has been tested and is now ready for you to all enjoy! It's actually pretty simple. I think you all will be pleasantly impressed. I had so much fun making this afghan. I haven't made one in about 5 yrs. I got into a slump and between this chevron afghan and another that has me busy currently, I have come back into the world of afghans! I LOVE making them again! : D HOORAY! Also, for me, it was so fun and refreshing to be making this in boy colors. I have two girls so it isn't often that I get to play around with blues and greens and it was so so much fun!

Infinity Hooded Scarf

Ok friends, I know that I have been promising this pattern for a while on FB. Hope it was worth the wait! {Fingers crossed} This is an infinity scarf which means it is made in one continuous circle. {No weird awkward ends to tuck in somewhere!} In this version I have attached a hood for extra warmth in the wind, rain, and snow that come with fall and winter. The nice thing about this particular pattern is that you have the option of making it with and without the hood. They are worked separately and then attached. The scarf looks beautiful both ways. Enough talking - lets get hooking!! Infinity Hooded Scarf This pattern has been sold to All Free Crochet and can be found HERE .

Bobble Car Seat Blanket

This is a gift EVERY new mother needs! How many times have you been leaving the store, bags in one hand, baby carrier in the other and up blows the wind? Trying to shield the baby and keep the blanket on them without dropping all your bags can be one challenging balance act for even the most talented contortionist! Or there is the ever so simple problem of the active child that kicks off every blanket that you place over them. NO MORE! This blanket is specifically designed to be locked into the car seat without adding extra bulk under the straps that can jeopardize the safety of the baby.   It has two slits in the blanket that allow you to slip the bottom lock of the car seat through the blanket and then strap the child underneath it. The blanket is designed to fit right over the car seat without extra length hanging off the edges and the bobbled stitches give your little one something to touch and feel. So let's get started!! : ) This is the perfect baby shower gift and
