I've seen countless pretty images on pintrest with people crocheting with twine. I have had no luck in finding twine that will look as good as those images. Furthermore, it is extremely difficult to work with. I found a good substitute that looks extremely like twine. It is called 100% Onice Viscose yarn. Its really cheap and soft to work with.
Materials needed:- Twine/ Viscose yarn
- 3mm crochet hook
Abbreviations:- Ch = Chain
- Sc = Single Crochet
- Ss = Slip stitch
- BLO = Back loops only

Row 9: [BLO] Ch 1 and turn. 1sc from 2nd chain from hook. 9sc. [Ch 1 at the corner and make 10sc]* Repeat till the end of the row. Ss to the first stitch [40 stitches]
