Over a Hundred Free Plarn Patterns

Posted on September 19, 2014

If you are looking for free plarn patterns or craft ideas for using recycled plastic bags, you are at the right website. I have over a hundred free plarn patterns at My Recycled When I started this blog site back in 2007, I had just one crochet pattern for using recycled plastic bags made into plarn. Over the last 7 years I have created and added over a hundred new plarn patterns which I offer free to everyone for their personal use.

In case you are new to recycled crafting, plarn is the term which refers to the material one can make by cutting plastic bags into strips. Thus the term is PL (plastic) + ARN (yarn) = PLARN.

I want to provide everyone with a comprehensive post here and provide everyone links on how to make plarn to all the different designs I have available in my pattern links.

First if you want to know how to make plarn from regular plastic retail bags, here is my picture tutorial on how to make plarn. Maybe you have the thin newspaper bags and wonder how to make plarn from those. Here is my newspaper bag plarn making tutorial.

Finally here is the link to all my free plarn patterns. I have everything from purses, totes, draft dodgers, baskets, scrubbies, slippers, rugs, clothes pin bags to hats.

If you don’t find what you are looking for in a plarn pattern, please let me know. I love requests. I have created many free plarn patterns from my readers requests.

Just a reminder too, if you have questions about crafting with plastic bags, or should you need help with a plarn pattern, I’m always here to answer any questions you may have. I monitor my blog site daily and reply to all emails. You can reach me by clicking on “My Contact” at the top of the page.

Best wishes and happy recycled crafting to all!
