Bead BookMark Thong
By Ronda Chapman

1)  Chain number of stitches needed for length of book.  Make sure you leave a 4 inch tail at both ends of chain.

2) String a bead at one end, put tail over hook, twist to make a loop, put tail through a  tassel, yarn over draw through loop, tighten tension, yarn over draw through and pull through to fasten off.  Cut a 4 inch piece of thread to tie around tassel, to gather thread together.  Trim tassel to desired length. String bead on other side and do the process over again to finish.

To make Tassel:  Wrap thread around three finger 20 times.
