Prepare the thread for the skirt. The skirt is made of 10 tassels consisting of B and R, with FPB6 in the lower section and sewn into a mesh in the higher section using FPB3. Cut off about 3.20 m of thread. Thread it into the eye of the needle. String 1x R onto the thread. 
Arrange the thread into two equal lengths (2 x 1.60 m). Tie off the ends of the threads (a small knot like a weaver‘s knot). Slide the strung 
1x R up to the knot. String 1x FPB6 and hide the knot in it.
