Tiny Tassels ~ A Free Pattern
Not much time now, before we pack our van for Edinburgh Yarn Festival! We’re preparing some beautiful kits for the festival, to make shopping easier. This week we’re offering a free pattern for our new kit, Tiny Tassels!
We’ll announce our prize winner of the Brown Eyed Susan pattern and Uncommon Thread BFL Singles, as well as offer a new prize giveaway for one of our Tiny Tassels kits!
We’ve been working on this pattern for a while with one of our lovely Loopettes, Karin Fernandes. It’s a simple little triangular garter shawl, but what makes it special is the tiny tassels!
We’ve written a photo tutorial for the tassels. Try making a few on a scrap piece of knitting, to help you decide the best number of wraps for yours.
Make the triangle larger, using two skeins of yarn, or use a thicker yarn such as a DK. It’s your choice. The tassels are perfect for using up small ends of yarn, or purchase Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails mini skeins, for the colours of your choice.
We have three beautiful colourways for our kits; all using London based indie dyer Qing Fibre Merino Singles as the main yarn and Unicorn Tails for the tassels. These are great value at £30! (We’ve split the unicorn tails into half skeins so you don’t have to buy four colours; There’s still more than enough yarn!)
The first kit is Flamingo and includes 1 skein of Qing Fibre Merino Singles in Flamingo as well as Mini balls of Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails in Death by Elocution, Brass, Jade and Onyx, as seen above.
Next we have Cuttlefish: 1 skein of Qing Fibre Merino Singles in Cuttlefish as well as Mini balls of Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails in Glazed Pecan, Death by Elocution, Brass and Antique Lace, as seen above.
Finally, we have Smoke: 1 skein of Qing Fibre Merino Singles in Smoke as well as Mini balls of Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails in Glazed Pecan, Jade, Brass and Translation, as seen above.
We have a very limited number of these kits available online now, but will bring a lot more to Edinburgh Yarn Festival, so find us there at stand E5.
Loop will also have Qing Merino Singles in loads of other colours on our stand at EYF and we are pretty well stocked in the London and online shop right now. If there are any kits left after the festival, they’ll be available through our shop at the same great price. The kits also include a Loop cotton shopper bag and the pattern is a gift to all of you here now!
We look forward to seeing your variations of this simple, but delightful shawl design. Tag us or use the #tinytassels so we can see all of your versions!
Thank you to Ragnhild of @anotherknitgirl who kindly modelled for us while we shot one of her own patterns that is coming very soon. And of course huge thanks to Karin Fernandes @karinsaray for designing this little treasure. It’s made us all smile!

I absolutely love this shawl, the tassels really make it special and look fun to make . . . And that yarn !!
I would love to win this kit-what a pretty shawl.
This is a great giveaway – I would love to win!
Love ar first sight! Amazing how those tiny fringes make a basic pattern so interesting.
I love this Tiny Tassels pattern. So different from other patterns.
Hi, We have just been through the most horrific bushfires ever seen in our drought-stricken little corner of the world. Scary & humbling as many people had their homes reduced to a pile of ash. Your lovely newsletter always provides a little colour and a daydreamy moment. We are all wishing for a green & smoke free Christmas, however, there would be an exception made for your beautiful ‘smoke’. Hoping you all find a moment to sit, with wool & create with love. T
This is such a cheerful pattern,would brighten up any winter’s day!
Great pattern the tassels make a statement.
Love this shawl especially the tassels
Hard to choose a favorite. They all look amazing and the tassels are so vibrant!
Ich finde diese Idee absolut entzückend, dankeschön dafür!
With over a foot of snow outside my window, this shawl is a beautiful pop of brightness and would be great in any of the colourways. Mmm cosy.
I have been waiting for this, such a lovely cheerful pattern. Love all the kits especially Smoke.
I love the wee tassles and the colourways. A lovely project!
Oh lovely cuttlefish – intelligent and colourful creatures that they are – yet so rarely a knitting inspiration for some strange reason. Yes please. I am hibernation crocheting yet again today and watching the blackbirds and a thrush eating the crab apples from the tree outside my bedroom window.
Such a simple but effective use of beautiful wool.
Such a bright and cheerful shawl!
A simple but fun design, Smoke would be my choice if I win!
how lovely is that – the perfect project for a long distance journey on the train or a weekend to yourself
Ideal project for a snow day!
Really clever idea – transforms something simple into something special. Would love to win a kit! (please)
Such a joyful design and a great way to add colour
Absolutely gorgeous! Difficult to decide which colour to choose
Tassels has captured my heart! Every time I look at it, it makes me feel happy inside. How much more to have a lovely kit and then wear it! Thank you so much.
I have entered via Instagram too. I hope I did it correctly : )
What a wonderful little shawl. It makes me dream and would be a great gift for a lovely old lafdy who teached me knitting.
What a neat idea for tassels
This shawl would look very nice around my neck when I visit your stall in 2 weeks at EYF
Cuttlefish would be my choice of colour. The shawl looks beautiful and would be so useful at all times of year.
Looks really lovely!
Such a lovely pattern, those tassels are the perfect adornment.
Love the tassels!
So hard to choose a favourite but it’s got to be flamingo xxx
Ooooh! Love this! Cuttlefish Please !
I love the colours of cuttlefish
Unicorn Tails and Tiny Tassels?!! what’s not to love? Gorgeous
Tassels look great fun to make and so does the shawl. I would love to knit one in smoke colour way.
My favourite is the Cuttlefish colour way and love the little tassels – they just finish it off a treat.
While visiting my son in London last year from Australia i made my way to Loop. What a charming store it is with such delicious stock. I controlled myself & chose a gorgeous varigated skein of merino/silk I’d seen on their IG page. Even though I’m not a confident knitter this cute tassel scarf looks achievable. Fingers crossed
Just lush, and ‘smoke’ is my favourite. I’m going to try this pattern with teeny tiny tassels for my dolls x
A beautiful pattern… those tassels! And the kits are dreamy too, love the cuttlefish colourway
That’s really beautiful – I particularly love the Flamingo colourway – so vibrant and warming.
Definitely Cuttlefish! Thanks for the inspiration and tutorial for these gorgeous little tassels. Such beautiful wool. Great idea for using up bits and pieces of special yarn as highlights.
Hurry up and pick me! This is such a fun, sweet pattern! Congratulations on another great knit!
Love it. Me!
I love this pattern and I would love it in smoke
Pick me for the lovely!
