Edge of neck warmer: Make 1 row of sc of the same color you chose for the granny triangles on each end of the neck warmer. Fasten off and weave in tail. Sew each granny triangle to corresponding end of neck warmer with matching color yarn. Fasten off.
You can leave as is or you can make two tassels to keep ends pointed and avoid curl-up.
To make a simple tassel, cut a piece of cardboard a little bit larger than the length you want your tassels to be. Wind the amount of yarn you would like around the cardboard. Carefully take your bundle of yarn out of the card. Thread a tapestry needle and pass the needle through all the threads in your bundle. Then, using another length of yarn, tie the tassel tightly. Trim your tassels to be of the same size. Use the length of yarn in the tapestry needle to sew the tassel to the granny triangle point. Fasten off.
Or you can use your favorite method of tassel-making and even vary your tassels!
