Clean up yarn threads.
Make 2 tassels to sew at the points of the "V" on each end of the neck warmer.
You're finished!
Variation: Instead of tassels you can make pompoms and sew them to the points of the "V" on each side of the neck warmer.
How to Make a Tassel:
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!
Enjoy!
