What size crochet hook do you need for Plarn?
You’ll need a crochet hook size 10 or above. If you get a really large crochet hook, you will find that it’s easier to crochet looser, making the mat more cushiony, and making it more comfortable to crochet with the plastic.
How many bags does it take to make a Plarn bag?
You’ll need a lot of plastic bags. The amount I ended up cutting up was about 60, giving me some extra plarn at the end. Bags without holes or obvious stretching from groceries are the only bags you’ll want to use.
What is Plarning?
Plarn is short for “plastic yarn.” Plarn is made by cutting plastic grocery bags into strips, which are then strung together into a single long strand. You can use plarn instead of regular yarn to crochet sturdy, reusable tote bags, purses, doormats, and more.
