This simple key tassel is based on the colours of the Norfolk sky. Walking along the quiet lane behind my house with my son late one November afternoon I looked up and saw this fantastic mix of colours. I couldn’t resist taking a quick photo and then, back home, I was inspired to make a simple key tassel incorporating those colours. As you can see it is a mix of the blue, white, and grey of the sky with a very dark green thread binding all the other threads together.
First I made a short piece of thin cord and tied a loop of about 5cm. Then I gathered a group of the other threads together and tied them between the loose ends of the cord. Finally I used the green thread to whip them together before trimming the ends to the desired length.
