Double Picket Stitch Plarn Tote

February 1, 2013 No comments yet

Time to share a new recycled bag project. I’ve been busy with charity crocheting but rest assured, I’m always working on recycled craft projects too. Here is a recycled bag that features a double picket stitch design. In the original Plarn Picket Stitch tote pattern, I crocheted just a single picket stitch on the plastic bag tote. In this tote bag, I repeated the special stitch pattern to add a different look to the project.

Follow the original crochet pattern instructions through round 28. Then repeat rounds 24 and 25 to make another round of pickets on the tote bag. Once you have the 2nd round of pickets done, simply finish the reusable tote by working rounds 26-32 from the original pattern. Basically by adding the double picket stitch design, you increase the length of the tote bag by about 2 inches.

This recycled bag features a new stitch design that I added for a new look to my latest reusable bag. I call this stitch the Picket Stitch. I have used a similar stitch idea in my picket fence dishcloth pattern and thought it would be interesting to use on a tote bag pattern. It adds a different look and I’m always trying to come up with new ideas for dressing up my recycled bags.
