Group two strings together and tie a knot about half an inch from the group knot. Split that into pairs and tie two strings together from different groups. You will want to do this three times to get three rows of knots.

Since the baker鈥檚 twine was thinner, we did four rows of knots. This secured the egg in its little mini hanging basket.
