I was just taking a look at my Pinterest board for alternative material crochet – things that have been crocheted with plarn, t-shirt yarn, VHS and other items. I thought I’d share ten examples from that board with you today. Tell me, what’s the most unique item that you’ve crocheted with that was not yarn?
