Plarnation Rectangle Rug
This variation on the Tarnation Rectangle Rug is crocheted with plarn (PLastic yARN), made from cut up grocery bags. I think it will make a great little patio rug.
There are no real modifications needed to the pattern, except to use plarn instead of tarn. The rug pictured above took 40 regular-sized grocery bags for the plarn, and it measures 21" wide by 31" long. It's got 56 rows plus the foundation chain.

Note: This rug is machine-washable.
Don't put it in the dryer--it will melt.
