Weaving a Recycled Plastic Strap

Spool Knitter

I needed to make a strap for my grey and pink colored recycled bag so I used a spool knitter. There are many variations of this 4-prong tool and you weave the loops around the posts by slipping the bottom existing loop off and over the new loop. You work around to each post in this manner to weave a long braided-style strap.


I love how by using the grey and then pink bags, the strap has a variegated look about it.

Here is a photo of the spool knitter I used which is made by Rugworks.

The handle is being made from recycled plastic bags made into plarn. I created a striped look for the strap handle by attaching two pink plastic bag loops together and then adding one grey loop. Then two more pink strands and one more grey and just keep repeating the process.
