Green Plarn Kitchen Basket

Posted on October 10, 2018

It was time here at My Recycled Bags to crochet a new recycled plastic bag project. I needed a basket for the local nursing home fundraiser so out came my green plastic bags that I have been collecting. I cut my bags into 1 inch strips and assembled a ball of plarn to begin my recycled plastic basket.

I used this free recycled plastic basket pattern to crochet my basket with a K crochet hook. I did a modified version of the basket pattern by crocheting less rounds so it was shorter. My finished size is 5 inches tall, 22 inches around and about 7 inches across top.

Most of the green bags matched but some were a shade darker and lighter. As you can see, these different shades of green give the basket a cool blended color look.

I crocheted a towel topper onto a dollar tree towel and added a matching green dishcloth to complete this little green kitchen ensemble. Here is a close-up of my double-layered towel topper which uses the pointed handle towel topper pattern found here.

Well that completes my kitchen basket set and off to the fundraiser this recycled basket of goodies goes!
