You're somewhat experienced with the skills necessary to complete this project, but you haven't mastered all the elements, yet.
Step 1
Project Note: The number of Skeins needed to complete this project is 1-Loops & Threads® Impeccable™ Yarn, Solid - Arbor Rose, 1-Loops & Threads® Impeccable™ Yarn, Solid - Soft Rose, and 1-Snuggly Wuggly™ Yarn by Loops & Threads® - Candy Pink 
 
Separate each embroidery hoop, keeping only the inside rings that have no hardware. Set the outer pieces aside; you will not need them for this project. Place the two hoops on your working surface, with the smaller hoop centered inside the larger one.  
Step 2
Measure and cut four pieces of transite, each 12" long. Use the transite to tie the smaller hoop to the larger one in four places. Then trim away any excess transite.
 
TIP: Make sure the transite is evenly spaced out around the hoops (i.e., at 12 o’clock, three o’clock, six o’clock and nine o’clock). Keep the same length for each tie, so that the smaller hoop will hang evenly below the larger one when you pick them up. 
Step 3
Cut a 72" piece of transite, and tie each end to the larger hoop, so that they’re exactly opposite each other. Trim away the excess transite after you make your knots. Cut a second 72" piece of transite, and tie one end to the larger hoop, exactly halfway between the ends where the first length was tied. Loop this length of transite once around the midpoint of the other length of transite. Pull this second length taut, then tie its other end to the large hoop, directly opposite where you first knotted this piece. Use these lengths to hang your hoops before building the chandelier.
 
TIP: Wrapping the second piece of transite around the first at its midpoint causes a bit of friction, while this will help the hoops stay in place as you adjust their angle while working. It’s very handy!
Step 4
Make two or three 8" tassels from each skein of yarn. You should end up with seven to nine tassels total. To make one tassel, wrap the yarn 50 times around an 8½" long book or cardboard rectangle. While the yarn is still wrapped around the book/cardboard, loop a 36" piece of yarn through one end of the wrapped yarn and knot tightly. With scissors, cut open the opposite end of the wrapped yarn. Take one more piece of yarn, approximately 24" long, and use it to wrap around the yarn about 1½" x 2" below its top. Knot this piece, then trim away any excess. Repeat until you have the total number of tassels you desire. Do not trim the lengths of yarn at the top, as you will use these to hang each tassel from the chandelier. Click here for a video tutorial on how to make a tassel.     
Step 5
Use a ruler and scissors to measure and cut each the yarn from each skein into 48" lengths. Separate the lengths into color groups: light, medium and hot pink. 
Step 6
Using lark’s head knots, begin attaching the 48" lengths of yarn, four pieces at a time, all the way around the larger hoop. See our video tutorial on how to make a lark’s head knot here [the large hoop].
 
TIP: Attach the yarn pieces by color group in order to create an ombré effect around the hoop. For instance, you might begin with light pink yarn, attaching all pieces in that color, then move to medium pink yarn, attaching only half of them and saving the other half for later. Then attach all the hot pink pieces, and finish by attaching the remaining medium pink pieces. 
Step 7
Use the long ends on the tassels to tie each one onto the smaller hoop. Stagger their lengths so that they range from 6"above to 12" below the hanging yarn curtain that is knotted to the large hoop. Use the image as a guide. 
Step 8
Cut a 36" piece of transite and wrap it around the hanging yarn, about 18" below the larger embroidery hoop, making sure it’s a little below the top of the very highest tassel. Pull the transite tight and wrap several times around the yarn. Knot the transite tightly, but do not trim its ends.  
Step 9
Thread the ends of the transite through to the inside of the hanging yarn, above the wrapped portion. With the ends now inside the hanging yarn, pull them straight up, so that you’re lifting the yarn curtain up as well. This will cause the yarn to drape softly, as shown in our photo. Be sure to lift both sides evenly, so that the yarn drapes evenly, too. Once you have the yarn to your liking, tie the transite ends to the smaller hoop, and trim away any excess. 
Step 10
If necessary, trim the ends of the hanging yarn to make them even and reveal the tassels hanging underneath. Hang your yarn chandelier high enough so that the tassels can fall freely.
