make a plarn betta!
a tribute to Sushi the betta fish, my pet betta fish that passed away.
i used those thin translucent plastic bags from the produce section in the grocery store, partly because we don't get free plastic bags here in Toronto and the only plastic bags i have on hand are those produce ones. but also because i think the translucent and delicate quality of the produce bags would make a nice fish.
for this project you'll need:
plarn (aka plastic bag yarn. if you need instruction on how to make plastic bag yarn see http://hellejorgensen.typepad.com/gooseflesh/2007/02/plastic_bag_yar.html)
3-4 of those produce bags would suffice.
3.5mm crochet hook
another plastic bag to stuff fish
shiny silver material (i.e. the inside of a candy wrapper)
a black Sharpie
Step 1: Crochet the Body
ch 3, 6 sc in third ch from hook, 2 sc in first sc, sc in next sc, [2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc] around and around until piece measures about 2″ in diameter, end with a sl st in next sc. Don’t fasten off.
You’ll get a shallow cup shape.
