Crocheting a Rug Using Plarn

Crocheted Plarn RugThis is a rug we use for muddy shoes. It is easily rinsed clean and drip dried.

Approximate Time: Approx. 2 hours

Supplies:

Instructions:

Cut grocery bags so you have "loops" of the plastic. Attach the loops together to make "plarn" for your project.

Begin crocheting in an oval shape and continue until it is the desired size.

I wanted this rug for our shoes so it is long and narrow. I used single crochet for the first row, then moved into double crochet stitches.
