How to make plastic yarn "Plarn" free tutorial
By AnnooCrochet Designs
My fellows crochet addicts, I absolutely needed to share it with you for this year's holidays.
I love creating something cool out of unexpected material, and this is just a perfect example of having fun while up-cycling.
As any modern household do, I always have a pile of plastic bags, sitting in an organized mess in my drawers, and I never quiet know what to do with them, but I hate just throwing them away... so joy and happiness here is my solution!
When turned into "Plarn" these bags give a versatile crochet medium, resembling "Whraphia", but slightly more flexible and easier on the hook. I truly hope you will enjoy experimenting with plarn as much as I did...Oh the possibilities....
You will Need:
A bunch of plastic bags,
Crochet hook 4:00 mm
How to make Plastic Yarn:Place your plastic bag in front of you, handles to the left, seam to the right, flatten it with your hand to make it neat.
Take your scissors and cut the seam off
Now cut the handles about an inch below, and as straight and neat as you can
your bag will look like so
place in on the flat surface and run your hand over it to flatten it, the open sides will be on the sides.
gently unfold in a way you could pass your arm through
