Tutorial: Plarn (Homeless Mats & Pillows) - plastic bags made into yarn

Someone brought up “plarn” (plastic bags made into yarn for crocheting/knitting. I made up a PDF of the instructions and then opted for the easier posts on my blog so I could break it down. I’ve been doing these for a couple of years now so hopefully I didn’t miss something in the “oh that’s obvious” thing that happens in our heads but I didn’t put on paper. If you have any questions, please let me know. This link will go to all three posts.


Awesome! You’ve clearly made a lot of these. Great use for those bags!

I’ve officially donated five mats and have a few bags filled with more mats and pillows to donate once we’re allowed to!
