Step 1: Making the Triangles for the Crochet Tassel Garland

First you need the crochet triangle pattern. This is an easy pattern and it works like a traditional granny square except that it's actually a triangle shape instead.

They are pretty fast to work up. I used just three different colors on each triangle with two of the colors repeated. You could use 5 different colors or stick to one color throughout.

I can't tell you how many triangles you will need because it depends on lots of factors including the yarn you use and the size of your hook which will influence the finished size of each one PLUS I don't know where you plan to hang the finished piece.

I recommend that you roughly space each one out (you can have a gap between each one and not placed right next to each other in the finished piece) as you plan to have them and measure.

Step 2: Making the Yarn Tassels

If you want to add the tassels on, and I recommend that you do because it looks so much nicer, you need to make up as many tassels to match each triangle. If you don't already know how ...

Step 3: Sew or Tie the Tassels Onto Each Crochet Triangle

In my tutorial for making tassels, I said to leave the yarn strand ends that were tied right at the top.

If you didn't do this or used another method then you will need to follow this instruction: cut off a long length of yarn, thread it through a large eye needle such as a darning needle and push it through the very top area of your tassel. Then adjust the yarn so the tassel is roughly in the middle.

Now take these yarn strand ends at the top of the tassel and tie them around the bottom corner of your granny triangle. There should be a large enough hole at the bottom and you can push one strand of yarn through and tie a knot at the back of the triangle to secure the tassel in place.

Step 4: Neatening the Tassel

Your tassel is now tied to the triangle. If you feel that it is not secure enough then you can thread one strand through the bottom corner again and make another knot at the back if you want.

I then tidy up these top ends of yarn by using a crochet hook to pull them down through the knot which has tied off the head area of the tassel.

In the photo the hook is placed under the knot and will be used to catch the yarn just above and pull it down and through. The ends then become part of the actual tassel and are tidied up.

Step 5: Finishing off Each Crochet Triangle With Tassel

All that remains for your triangle is to snip across the bottom of the tassel to neaten up the ends of yarn and straighten them up. A good pair of fabric scissors should be able to cut through them all in one go.

Step 6: Arranging Your Finished Crochet Triangles

Now you need to arrange all your finished crochet triangles in the order that you want them to go for your finished garland. I tried to alternate different sets of color combinations.

You'll want to lay them out on a large table, work surface or the floor until you are happy with how they look in a line.

I recommend using some strong twine or cord to hold all your triangles on for the finished garland. You want to thread this cord starting from one side to the other and using the convenient holes in the granny pattern to weave it through.

Once each piece has been threaded on and roughly adjusted into place, cut the cord so you have long lengths left at either side for hanging.

Hang up one side, then the other and you may make a number of adjustments with the spacing of the triangles and how loose or taut you pull the cord at the other side. So be prepared for a little too-ing and fro-ing to get it just so.
