I don’t normally share a project in progress but this crocheted laundry basket is just such an enormous project that I have to post about it even though it’s not completed yet. I’m guessing its about half finished and I believe I’ve used already over a hundred recycled plastic bags.
I have had a recycled plastic bag or plarn laundry basket on my to-do list for a long time. I eventually get around to creating most of the things on my list but it does take time. Speaking of which, this recycled bag may end up being the largest one I have ever crocheted and it’s taking a lot of time.
Here is a picture I took of the base which is about 15 inches wide. It was done in single crochet stitch so it would be tighter and stronger for the bottom of the laundry basket. I am crocheting the sides in half-double crochet stitches.
I am continuing to crochet on this project and hope to have it finished soon. Once done, I will post the free crochet pattern and more pictures here at My Recycled Bags.
