String crocheted bowl

A friend lent me the book Simple Crochet by Erika Knight. It has lots of modern patterns for crocheting things for around the house. Some of them are from different materials like string or leather and look quite edgy. The textures look really interesting. There are boxes, bags, rugs, cushions, etc.

I had a go at a large, round bowl using reasonably thick string and a 4.5 mm crochet hook. But it is quite hard to pull string through, as it doesn´t slide like wool. It started to aggravate my sore wrists, so I finished the whole thing off as a small bowl instead...
