My First string making attempt


#1

Thanks Neff!



#2

Nice looking string you got there. I could use a tut for that.


#3

Wow, that’s a great looking string. :o
My first I just got some cotton twine stuff, and spun it together like yoyo string (well… really thick yoyo string)


#4

Sweet! I love the independence of being able to make my own string, you will too.


#5

Thanks guys!

There is a video posted in the getting started section. Here are some pointers I used size 10 mercerized cotton crochet thread. 3 ( 2 pink 1 white) pieces for the sting in the picture. They started 23’ long. Twist with drill (forward direction if left handed use reverse) till it shrinks about 4 feet. Everything else is in the video.
Good luck!

two truisms:

  1. Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!
  2. Everybody should check the Gettin’ Started Section!

But here’s the vid.  Enjoy my pajamas.

i have been dabbling in the art of string making. i use to have a yoyo string company, “BLING STRING”
the top string making process is much much harder than a yoyo string. yoyo string has 2 wound pieces but spintop string has 3 pieces wrapped around each other. i love making top string, i needed to learn how to do it fast because i am left handed. the string is wound counter clockwise for southpaws.!!!
