How long is a piece of string?

I’ve recently been making some crochet bowls using string! I bought the string from the cheap shop for $2 dollars. Its cotton and quite soft to work with. For practical use I think it would need to be hardened. You can use glue, corn starch or even sugar to do this. I’ll tell you how soon, but now off to teach art!

  1. Fascinating – you are very clever indeed! I have been working on my crochet this week, but apparently I am a loose hooker – which explains why my granny squares are so baggy! I am making lots of different squares and rectangles, and I am hoping they will eventually become a sort of random-patchwork blanket.

  2. That’s a great idea, I’ve thought about it before but never got around to it. I have to laugh because the avon lady came knocking a few days ago and when I opened the door to answer she was trying to get a foot it and asked me what all the “string” was for…….never confuse yarn with string although string can be used instead like you’ve done.
    The bowls are great!

    • Thanks! I’m going to try a few different sorts or string and thicknesses too! Avon ladies still exist??? Wow! I thought they would know the difference between string and yarn.
