Halloween Witch Tassel Pattern


A glamorous witch tassel designed by Kathryn Halfpenney that is just wicked for Halloween. The finished tassel is about 14cm (5 1/2″) high, excluding hanging loop.

Full instructions with diagrams are provided over 16 pages, although some experience of tubular peyote, netting and vertical netting is recommended.
