You can buy what's called kitchen cotton which is much thicker, like yarn, and you'd use a large crochet hook. Look for Sugar and Cream, Peaches and cream, Lion Cotton, or Bernat's Handicrafter cotton.

Peaches and cream IS the same as kitchen cotton. And it will stretch, it's supposed to in a market bag. I thought you meant you used thin crochet thread, not the yarn.
