As ACAC’s Artist-in-Residence, Michelle Lougee is leading Plarn Art to Save the Planet! – a collaborative community art project for the Minuteman Bikeway transforming plastic bags into public art. In this video, Lougee teaches you how to crochet a 20 stitch square; this is the ideal project for beginner crocheters. You can make them using any color of plarn and a size “J” (or close) crochet hook.

More information at Plarn Art to Save the Planet! is hosted by the Arlington Public Libraries and funded in part by grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Friends of the Fox Library, and ACAC’s Grants Committee.
