According to worldoceansday.org 8 million tonnes of plastic waste ends up in our oceans, including millions of plastic bags. I do keep and reuse our plastic bags but today I am going one step further turning my plastic bags into plarn- plastic yarn.
I decided I needed a new plarn fruit bowl.
I used an 8mm crochet hook and crocheted a circle in the round increasing gradually using single crochet. When I reached the size base I wanted, I switched to double crochet in each stitch around. I used 10 plastic bags and my plarn ran out on the very last stitch (can you believe it??). I used 4 white bags to crochet around the top.
