I love that name, plarn! It's the name of yarn made of plastic. You can create your own plarn by cutting plastic shopping bags into strips. Experiment with different thicknesses of plastic and different widths of the strips. I haven't quite figured out how to join the strips together (that'll be another tip), but rolling the strips and using a loose tension and big hook make it easier to crochet with the plarn. Get creative, see what you can make with plarn, and leave me your comments!
