Cut 3 purple and 4 Star Green 6” lengths of thread for tassel. Holding all lengths of thread together, fold in half. With right side of cross facing, using crochet hook pull all loops of fold through st at very bottom of cross, pull ends through lp and pull tight. Trim ends evenly. Press cross with warm steam iron placing cloth between iron and piece making sure all strands of tassel are lying flat and straight. For French knot, take length of Star Green thread and with needle, pull thread up through center intersection of cross pulling thread up from back. Wrap thread 4 times around needle, put needle down through stitch just to side of where thread came up through (so that knot will not pull all the way through and will stay in place on front side of cross). Pull thread slowly through to back being careful not to distort French knot. Pull secure but don’t pull too tightly. Secure on back with regular knot and trim ends close to knot on back side.
