Plarn Tutorial by jesspotter Plarn Tutorial by jesspotter
I decided to make a tutorial on how to make plarn because plarn is so much fun to crochet with.

Plarn is taking plastic bags and turning them into yarn.

The ball of yarn in the final picture is about 10-15 bags worth and it doesn't make much.

Any questions feel free to ask me.

This is my first tutorial. If you have any suggestions, let me know!

Thank you very much! And those are really cool! If I can ever figure out what happened to my huge ball of plarn maybe I could try that this summer.

Plarn is a very good idea, considering we have so many bags and we only use them for the cat box and possibly trash. I told my mom(An avid knitter) about it and she agreed it's a very creative use of plastic bags.

However, is there any easy way of doing this sans the loop bit? Like, cut the bag the way you say, and then...I dunno, cut them so it's one strand and then connect them like that? Or is it like the weaving loom loops? I'd get confused with crocheting if I had them in loops, so I thought I'd ask. It's nearly eleven PM and I'm half asleep, I hope that made sense. XD

I guess you could do it like that but then there are hundreds of little end bits to deal with.

Well, I'll just do it with the loops, it seems like it'd be less work and all. Thank you so much for helping, though. ^_^
