How to make Plarn

Plastic Yarn from grocery bags

How to make plarn:

  1. Lay bag flat and fold it in half lengthwise.
  2. Fold bag in half again.
  3. Cut folded bag into loops, discarding handles and bottom. NOTE: we are cutting each bag into 4 strips to get the appropriate strength for Mats.
  4. Knot loops together to form a single strand.
  5. Roll the strand into a ball and crochet or knit as you would with yarn.
