Tassels
(Make 2)
Cut 12 lengths of yarn (choose the colors you like the most), about 40 inches long each piece. Hold them all together at mid length (about 20 inches)
Using a crochet hook, pass the crochet hook through one of the stitches at the sides of the hat. Make a slip knot with the tassel so the knot ends up as close to the brim of the hat as possible. You should have 24 strands of yarn.
Divide the yarn strands into three groups of 8. Make a braid with the three groups of 8. Once the braid reaches desired length finish the braid with a slip knot. Clip the remainder of the yarn strands to an even length, leaving about 1 inch of length at the end of the knot.
Repeat for the tassel.
