Wilton tip 234. I use it to make grass all the time.

233 and 234 are slightly different, pick whichever is best for your project:

I've used 233 and 234 as well, but does anybody have any ideas to impart about how to use them best? I try to keep these tips clean as I use them, but after a while, the separate strands all run together. I'd be thrilled if someone would tell us the secret!!!

Unlike hte star tip where you "push and squeeze", on this tip you'll "squeeze and pull". Start squeezing and pull the bag upward, then release. Fast motions. working slow is not good with this tip.

Your hand may also be melting the icing in the bag so perhaps working with small batches at a time (which also helps eliminate the hand cramps); icing consistency might be too thin, although if it's too thick, it makes it hard to squeeze and causes hand cramps.
