I went to Hobby Lobby in the craft section. Bought Bonnie Craft Cord. I also switched hook to K or N.

the nylon twine is boat rope. Look in a hardware store or farm supply store in the rope section

Where do you get the nylon twine for this Easter basket?? I have looked on the internet and cannot find it. Why put in a pattern with material that is not easily found??
