Make 4 tassels for “Keep on Blooming!" – Flower blanket CAL.
You can crochet this block using almost any kind of yarn, but I recommend yarns with a hook recommendation of 3.0 - 4.5 mm.
WRAP THE TASSELS
Use Off White yarn and wrap 50 rounds around a piece of cardboard (about 12 cm tall), you can also use an equal size lid. Cut the yarn. (photo 1)
Cut 1 meter of the Off White yarn and
fold in half.
Tie the yarn using a several knots tightly on top of the tassels. Cut the opposite side (in center of yarn) open. (photo 2)
Using yarn from the ball, wrap 20 rounds tightly around the top part of the tassel (about 1 cm from the top).
Leave 15 cm of yarn and cut. Tie several knots tightly and leave the yarn ends hanging freely. (photo 3)

Set the Flower piece on top of the Leaf. Tie the yarn coming from the magic ring (be careful not to break the yarn).
Use the needle and the yarn that you just used, tighten and tie the knot through the Tassel, Leaf and Flower pieces. Secure ends.
Take the hook under the yarn on top of the tassel. YO all 4 yarns, pull up to the loop and ch 4 (using all 4 yarns). Secure the yarn and leave the extra yarn free.
Cut and level the tassel’s bottom yarns. If you are using wool yarn, you can steam the tassels fluffy by using the steam of the iron or above the steam of a kettle.
You need 4 Flower Tassels for your Keep it Blooming Flower Blanket.
Use the free yarn on top of the tassels to tie them to your work, but make the border first.
