Assembly:

Lay the granny squares out for assembly in two sets (one for front and one for back), ensuring they are all right side down. The top two rows should be 7 (8) granny squares , the bottom two rows should be 3 (4) squares wide. Sl st to join in horizontal rows first, starting in the ch-3 sp of the corner, then in each st and ch-2 sp across, ending in the opposite corner. Keep the sl st tight when joining the next square. Once all horizontal lines are closed, sl st the vertical lines. Once both sets of squares are joined, lay them together with right sides facing. Begin at the bottom  corner of the second row of squares, and sl st the side and sleeve seams closed. Repeat on the other side. Sl st the first squares together on the top row for shoulder seam, leaving a 12 inch opening for neck. Repeat on other side.

Make tassels by wrapping magnolia yarn around the cardboard 10 times. Slide a 8 inch strand of yarn under the wrapped yarn, and tie a knot at the top. Let one tail hang down, and slide off cardboard. Tie 3-4 knots around all of the strands a ¼ below the top knot, then use a tapestry needle to run the strand up through the top knot. Use this strand to whip st each tassel to the sweater around the bottom. Attach 2 tassels to each square.
