How to Make Plarn

Half-Double Crochet Stitch


When I make the plastic mats, I start with 75 single stitches for the bottom row, then use the half-double crochet stitch for the rest of the mat.

This will make the mat approximately 2-1/2 feet wide or so, and I usually make them about 5-1/2 feet to 6 feet long.

You can make your mats as long or wide as you like, using any stitch you like.  This is how I make mine.
