Today was a rainy afternoon, so I spent it making plarn to crochet with.
“Plarn?” I hear you ask. “What on earth is plarn?“
I’d been hoarding plastic bags for a reason! (Okay, that and my mom keeps swiping our reusable bags and forgets to return them.)
I’d mentioned back in May that I wanted to make a rug, but since then had nothing but trouble with granny squares.
I decided to make my own pattern – I recently made a REALLY nice knit hat from my own design – I’ll post pictures sometime – so why couldn’t I make my own rug pattern?
Went to youtube, found a nice video on crochet in the round and from there it was so simple.
Only problem was I didn’t have the correct size hook. I have 6 mm and under and one really big one at 16 mm. No sooner than I realized that little setback than my mom emailed me and wanted to know if I would like to go to town with her for a few things.
Sure! So I got my 10 mm hook after all!
I now have a circular project about a foot across that I did just tonight, completely half double crochet stitch of my own creation! Plarn is surprisingly soft, too!
