Repurposing Dry Cleaner's Plastic to Crochet

February 19, 2018

Make plarn (about 2 inches thick) with the plastic and crochet baskets, purses, and bags, among other things.

To make the piece more sturdy or give it a color theme attach regular yarn to the plarn and crochet together.

I attached a very thin yarn to my plarn while making the yellow/orange and blue clutches.

You can also switch between the plarn and the yarn or craft rope for more color. Another option for pieces to be more sturdy is to gather together 2 or 3 strings of plarn and crochet these as you work.

Here are a few other examples:

  • crochet hook size 7 or 8 depending on the project
  • regular yarn (optional)

Directions:

  • Crochet your item as if you were following the crochet pattern of an item using regular yarn.
