This tutorial is for how to make the tassels on the Nouveau Beaded Capelet nice and neat while anchoring your tail at the same time.

First start by threading the beads onto your yarn using a beading needle or a floss threader. Then cast on 3 stitches using the long tail cast on with the beads on the working end of the yarn. Leave a long tail, at least 12 inches long, you will use it later.

Knit 1 row.

Step 1: Move 50 beads towards needle. Knit into next stitch, forming a loop of beads, do not pull worked stitch off of left needle. Pull yarn snugly against beads.

Step 2: Transfer stitch back to left hand needle

Step 3: Knit 2 together.

Repeat steps 1-3 two more times so that you have a total of 3 beaded loops.

With the working yarn held above the work, wrap the tail tightly around the top of the beaded loops clockwise 3-4 times.

Then, holding the tail with the working yarn, knit 3. This finishes the tassel instructions. Work the Setup Rows holding the tail and working yarn together as well.
