These will be used to make your fringe.
You have 8 stitches on each end of your scarf. Each stitch will get a piece of yarn as a tassel.
Take one piece of yarn and fold in half. Thread the folded end into your large eyed needle. Push this yarn through the first stitch on the end of your scarf. Do not pull all the way through. Remove the needle. You will have a loop. Put the two ends on the other side of the yarn piece through the loop and pull. One fringe created! Repeat this so that each end of the scarf has 8 tassels.
You are all done! Dress your naked bottles
