    Things You'll Need

    • 1/2-yard heavy nylon netting
    • Ruler
    • Scissors
    • Crochet hook

    Cut the netting into long thin strips, approximately 2.5 inches wide with scissors and as long as the length of the netting.

    Tie the ends of the strips together using double knots, creating one long strip of netting. Wind the long strip of netting into a ball.

    Chain 18 stitches with a size J crochet hook. Turn and single crochet in each stitch. Repeat turning and single crocheting in each stitch until your piece measures 3 inches in length. Fasten off and weave in any loose ends.
