plarn basket

So I have now restarted working with plarn. I want to make a plarn basket or waste paper bin so I have started by crocheting a ‘square’ of 15 stitches and 14 rows in double crochet uk / single crochet us.

Then on my 15th row I picked up 15 stitches on the other three sides. And now I am working in the round – but because the base is square it has a square shape to it.

It’s an experiment so far and I will keep you updated!

      Hello 🙂 plarn is plastic yarn. I used plastic bags we got from shops. There’s a way to cut them so that one bag turns into a long thread. I hope to do a post about what plans I have for plarn!
