Shelly Mesh Plarn Bag - $4.95 Login to Shop

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.

Skill Level: Easy

Finished Size: 12" (30.5 cm) wide, 14" (35.5 cm) tall not including handles

Approximately 50 grocery bags cut into 1" wide plarn
Note: This bag can be crocheted with bulky weight yarn instead of plarn. Be sure to check the gauge before substituting.
Crochet hook K (6.50 mm)
