Fasten off, weave in ends.

Repeat Rounds 1 through 7 for the number of graduation caps you want on your bunting.

 

Adding the Tassels

Using the gold Bonbon yarn and your piece of cardstock make a tassel of about 2½ in. long for each cap (if you need help you can follow along with my step by step photo tutorial How to Make a Tassel Photo Tutorial here). Attach tassel through centers of caps and secure by weaving in the ends.

 

Finishing

Lastly, string the finished caps into a bunting using the black yarn again as follows …

Ch 30,  slip st into center st of any corner of your first cap, *ch 20, slip st into center st of any corner of your next cap, repeat from* for remaining caps, ch 30 to finish and fasten off.

    in directions there is no mention of what to do with the cardboard/card stock, please explain, thanks…

      The cardstock is used for making the tassels. It is mentioned in the “making the tassels” section.

    My squares keep curling.

      You can use toothpicks weaved in and out of a few stitches on the back side to keep from curling.
