Grocery Bag Yarn Tutorial by SuperBunny-GO Grocery Bag Yarn Tutorial by SuperBunny-GO
Massive image. Sorry. ^-^ All typos and lack of clarity are my fault, along with the crummy images. If you need any help, let me know and I will do my best! This is very chunky to knit/crochet with. It works well for bags, can cozies, and I suppose bracelets, if you want.

I make no claims at the original idea. I saw some examples of this at an art museum and decided to figure out how to do it.

Edit:: Aw, crumbles. Someone else submitted one of these today. My technique is slightly different then THIS ONE, but her tutorial is very good. Check them both out, and use whichever one you find easier. ^-^

Wow, I've been working on my crocheting, and this looks like a fun way to put it all together when I'm done! but I think I'll have to work on form. I tried to make a coaster and it came out like a mushroom.

WOW How funny to have two of us post a tutorial about recycling bags to knit with! I love your tutorial and I love the way you join the bags. I like it better then you do not have the little tails to hide in the project. Also thanks for the link to mine... I will do the same for yours!

I cracked up when I when I noticed. ^-^ Right now I'm still getting used to DA, but I will keep your offer in mind. Right now I'm a tad bit overwhelmed by life, the universe, and everything. ^-^

That is so cool, and I can just imagine it would do some really cool things (and really unique looking, too) ~ I'm going to have to try that, as I have way too many plastic bags floating around :D

Thank you for making this!

Thank you for the favorite! I hope you have fun with it. It's a little tricky to get used to using the yarn, but after a bit of practice it gets a lot easier! :aww:

Ooh, thanks for the warning!

Is it possible to crochet with it, or do you just recommend knitting it?
