Re: Plarn

There are several how to's on how to make plarn. This is the best video:

Some people have been using them as scrubbies within their wash cloth patterns or as soap cozies.

After using the basic plarn making technique, I've found that it's easier to use if you twist the two pieces on the single chain every 2 chains. That way, your plarn is plyed instead of having two seperate strands going at once. I don't really care for plarn, to be honest with you. It's stiff and doesn't stretch or bend at-all! I guess that makes it ideal for some projects though. It's cool to know though
