Tas­sels

Tas­sels are added to Pan­els 2-5. For each of the lower rows of tas­sels, cut two 16cm (63/ 8") lengths of Yarn B. In­sert the cro­chet hook in un­der the bot­tom loop of Row 14 of each panel (Row 70 of the pat­tern), and out of the top of Row 15, then wrap the lengths of yarn around the hook and pull through. In­sert the ends of the yarn through the loop, and pull through. Re­peat all along the row and then trim the ends of the tas­sels to the de­sired length. For the up­per row of tas­sels, re­peat as be­fore, this time in­sert­ing the hook in un­der the bot­tom loop of Row 42 of each panel (Row 98 of the pat­tern) and out of the top.

Pull through and weave un­der the hor­i­zon­tal bar of the st above, and then take the nee­dle through to the back again. Re­peat along the row, in­creas­ing and de­creas­ing the amount of bars you weave through as per the im­age, to form a re­peat­ing tri­an­gle pat­tern.

Us­ing Yarn A, over­sew them to­gether along the tops of Pan­els 4 and 5, fas­ten off and weave in ends. Lay the cross shape WS fac­ing up­wards and place the bean­bag on top of the cen­tre panel (Panel 1), then fold the side pan­els up and pin in place. Place Panel 6 on top, and pin in place. Match­ing the colours as you go, over­sew along all the sides, fas­ten off and weave in the ends.
