Dazzling Tassels Easy Beginner Crochet Shawl with Tassel Fringe

Dazzling Tassels Easy Beginner Crochet Shawl with Tassel Fringe
by Kristin Omdahl

Inspired by a summer evening wedding I’ll be attending this month, I thought a metallic shawl would be a wonderful accessory not only for this event but to wear for dressing up any dress. I used a spectacularly brilliant sequin yarn for the body of the shawl and used multiple colors of yarn for the tassel fringe so it could be worn with any number of dresses. You could customize this in unlimited combinations of colors to coordinate wedding colors, the colors of your wardrobe, or specifically for one special outfit.

What you will need:

250 yards lace weight or fingering weight yarn for shawl and 100 yards fingering weight yarn for tassels

shown in:

3 spools of Be So Dazzling Yarn; 100% polyester, sequin novelty yarn; 100 yds per 25 gm spool; color gold

100 yds Be So Fine Yarn; 100% bamboo yarn; 650 yds per 4oz; shown in colors Caribbean Turquoise, Crushed Berries, Tropical Hot Coral, Passionate Plum and Calypso Lime

H/8 (5mm) crochet hook
Boye Tassel Maker
Yarn needle


each repeat is 5″ wide, but not critical for this project

Finished size:

50″ long x 14″ wide, not including tassels



Ch 204 (multiple of 20 plus 4)

Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook, *ch19, skip 19 chs, 2dc in next ch. Rep from * across.

Row 2: Slst into space between first and second dc, ch3 (counts as dc), dc in same sp, *ch19, skip 1 dc, 2dc in sp before next dc. Rep from * across.

Rows 3 – 30: rep row 2.

Fasten off. Weave in loose ends.


Make 4 1″ tassels each in the 5 colors (or a total of 20 tassels). Attach them evenly to the short ends of the shawl. Slip stitching to the shawl is a secure way to attach them.
