Now is the time to add your tassels. If you don’t know how to make them, you can find my tutorial here: How To Make A Tassel. You can use yarn colour A or B for your tassels, whichever you prefer! If you’re hanging your Granny Bobble in a diamond shape, attach your tassel on the bottom point. If you’re hanging it as a square, place one tassel on each bottom corner.

To hang my Granny Bobble, I used a small branch that I found in my backyard after a wind storm. You can use something similar for a boho-farm feel or use a dowel for a more minimalist appearance. Personalize it to match your décor and personality! I attached my square by weaving a long piece of yarn in and out of the square and around the branch. You may have another method, which is great too!

I hope you enjoyed this pattern! If you are looking for more fun and simple crochet projects, please check out the “Free Patterns” section of my blog. You can also find me on Ravelry for free .pdf versions for easy printing.
