Hot Knots is a slow design, upcycling crochet brand making treasure from trash. My main materials to use are plastic bags, discarded fabric, and donated jars and glass bottles.

My main process is crochet. I wash and cut plastic bags into yarn and use this plastic yarn (plarn!) to crochet with, creating soap dishes, plant pot holders, bags and vases. Recently, I’ve been working a lot with raffia crocheted around vases, jars and bottles to create unique homewares.


I love working with other makers and creatives, especially those who are upcycling, using found materials or fabrics. In the new year, I’m looking to set up workshops and events to talk about my work and share my skills. If you’re a studio, shop, non-profit or community group please get in touch at hotknotsbylibby@gmail.com
