Step 1: Creating the String

**If at any point you run out of string, take a new strand and layer the beginning part on top of your ending string. You will crochet with this double string for a little bit, until the old piece completely ends.**

Cut a big scoop neck into the shirt. The piece you cut out of the neck you will use to cut into scraps and string.

Take an oval shape, and cut a skinny strip (about 1/4 inch) in a spiral around the oval until you reach the center.

Wind your strip of string into a ball, stretching it slightly as you do so.
