Move Over Yarn and Make Room For Plarn!!!
'Plarn' .. it is a commonly used word heard quite a bit in the crafting community. You can find write-ups and tutorials about it on various blogs and websites as well as in YouTube.
What exactly is Plarn? It is a very creative way to recycle plastic bags you bring home from the grocery store, retail stores, and even fast food restaurants.
2) Single (Continuous) Strand Cutting Method
The Looping Method is a fun activity to do as a family or the next time you hear 'Mom, I'm bored, there's nothing to do...'). You can have lots of fun looping plastic in a group setting such as church, at school or at work on lunch. Heck, this is a great way to make the time go faster while waiting at the dentist or dr's office instead of reading 2 year old magazines.
Plarn is very easy to use in both knitting and crocheting and is also visually appealing.
Here are just a few of the different types of plarn you will find available in the Plastique Plarn Shop:
|Made from Marsh Supermarket plastic bags|
|Made from Publix Grocery Store plastic bags|
|Made with Dollar General plastic bags|
or go crazy and mix it up with VHS tape:
|Mint Chocolate Chip which is plied VHS tape & WalMart produce plastic bags|
If you are new to using plastic yarn, I hope this information is helpful.
