Your shawl will benefit from blocking. Soak in a lukewarm wool solution, squeeze out water and roll gently in a towel. Pin out to desired size, leave until completely dry.
Make 21 tassels as follows: Using for eg. a phone approx. 3-4” in width, cut a 12” length of yarn and lay across top of mobile – this will be used to tie top of tassel. Wrap yarn around phone about 20 times (depending on thickness required). Using the 12” tie, knot top of tassel tightly. Cut tassel at opposite end. Wrap another length of yarn around tassel 1/2” from top approx. 6 times and knot ends together. Trim if needed and sew securely using ties, evenly spaced (3 tassels in each wedge) along bottom of shawl.
