A tassel is a finishing feature in fabric and clothing decoration.
It is a universal ornament that is seen in varying versions in many cultures around the globe.
It is made by binding or otherwise gathered threads from which at one end protrudes a cord on which the tassel is hung, and which may have loose, dangling threads at the other end. As decorative elements one often finds them attached, usually along the bottom hem, to garments, curtains, shoes, ceremonial robes and even as pasties covering the nipples of burlesque performers!
Using the brand new Hubble stitch, the Tassel Lariat hangs from a pliant rope of tubular Hubble stitch. Multi-layered Hubble stitched waves form the decorative body of the tassel. To finish, a Hubble woven fringe hangs in lush skirt below the body of the tassel.
