Crochet Pattern: Shelly Mesh Plarn Bag

By Rachel Choi – April 2nd, 2017 Be the first to comment

Recycle your plastic grocery bags by cutting and tying them into plarn (plastic yarn) and crocheting a brand new tote bag! This pattern uses about 50 average sized grocery bags. The pattern is worked in the round from the bottom up, including the handles, with no sewing required. The stitch pattern is solid on the very bottom of the bag and changes to a shell stitch mesh pattern for the body. The plarn material is sturdy and does not stretch like traditional yarn, making it perfect for crochet bags.

Prisoners Crochet Plarn Mats for the Homeless

By Rachel Choi – March 31st, 2017 1 Comment

Recently we discussed different charities that we all crochet for, and one of the activities mentioned was crocheting plarn (plastic yarn) mats for the homeless. So I wanted to share this fantastic video that I came across where prisoners crocheted plastic mats for the homeless as well.

If you are interested in using up your grocery bags to crochet mats for the homeless, feel free to check out our free plarn tutorial to get started creating your plastic strips. Once you have your plarn made, you can crochet single or even double crochet rows to create your mat!

Crochet Pattern: Tunisian Eyelet Hat

By Candace – March 29th, 2017 Be the first to comment
A Tunisian crochet hat that isn’t seamed and doesn’t require a double-ended hook and use of multiple balls of yarn at a time? Yes, please! The eyelet pattern is sandwiched between sections of Tunisian simple stitch, making it a cinch to follow if you know the techniques.

You will want to be comfortable with Tunisian crochet and crochet in the round, so you can follow the pattern. For extra help with Tunisian crochet in the round, see the tutorial.

Alternative to the Magic Adjustable Ring

By Rachel Choi – March 22nd, 2017 12 Comments

The magic adjustable ring and the adjustable double ring are popular methods for starting a project in the round without having a large hole in the center of the work. However, I know a lot of folks who aren’t fans of those techniques, or have trouble working the adjustable rings, and prefer to crochet the traditional way by starting with chain stitches. In this post I’ll show you a very simple technique that I often use to achieve a closed circle when starting a project in the round with chains.

Crochet Pattern: Dusting Mitt

By Rachel Choi – March 19th, 2017 3 Comments

Ditch those expensive, disposable dusters! Go green and environmentally friendly, by crocheting your very own dusting mitt that can be reused over and over again. Choose an inexpensive, machine washable yarn. Acrylic and cotton yarns both work well to attract and hold dust. The pattern uses a special loopy stitch (photo tutorial included) to create fibers that will get into small crevices and corners. Once it’s dirty and full of dust, shake off the large clumps of dust over a trash can and then toss the mitt into the washing machine. Crochet a few dust mittens so that you always have a clean one to use.

Crochet Pattern: Subtle Chevron Keyhole Scarf

By Rachel Choi – March 12th, 2017 Be the first to comment

I love keyhole scarves! They use less yarn compared to traditional scarves and are easier to wear. Simply wrap the scarf around your neck and pull it through the keyhole on the other side. This keyhole scarf uses a subtle, faint chevron pattern that is visible when crocheted with one color. Of course you can change colors while crocheting to create bold, not so subtle, chevron stripes too.
