Earlier this week I decided to cut a plastic table cloth into plarn. I basically did what Creative Jewish Mom did with her sheets but without the ripping. While cutting my plarn I was brainstorming for ideas of what I could use it for other than the basic idea of a shopping bag. My first thought was a head band, but that wouldn't be very comfy. So then I am thinking… hmmm, maybe a plastic bag dispenser… but I really love the way my plastic bag dispensers turned out made from regular yarn. So then I am looking on the web and around the house.. hmmm, what would be good made from plastic. a frisbee? Maybe?! Then I realized how great a ninja star would fly if it were plastic. So that is what I did 🙂 Plarntastic!! Its not as safe and pain free, when getting hit in the face, as the acrylic ninja star. But it floats! This will always be packed in our beach bag!
5 MM Hook
I used 1 inch plarn made from a plastic disposable table cloth (you can find them at Walmart)
CH 4, Connect to first CH to make a ring.
CH 1, 8 SC inside ring. connect to CH 1.
CH1, *SC 2, CH 2. Repeat around from * four times. Connect to CH 1
Slip stitch across until you get to the CH2, slip stitch into the CH 2 space.
*CH 6, Slip stitch into the second CH from hook, SC, HDC, DC. TRE, Slip stitch into next CH 2 space. Repeat from * for all four points
Make two stars. Using the slip stitch, connect them together around the edges. PLARNTASTIC!
