Tassels go very well with knit. It is the perfect way to finish an intarsia jacquard or to make especially yarn really visible.

Tassels will be back next fall. On the catwalk they can be seen in the BCBG Max Azria pre-fall collection, but more about that later. Tassels can give a knitted piece a more vintage or hippy look, or can go all the way cowboy style. If yo use some special tape yarn, such as in the images, the yarn will stand out even more!

The only thing to consider is the length of your tassels. Especially in the commercial world; how will the strings of yarn react to a machine wash? Will you be left with one big knot?
