Recycled, Upcycled, Repurposed Crochet Scarf turned into a Cowl

Repurposed Scarf

Recycled, Upcycled, Repurposed Crochet Scarf turned into a Cowl. That just basically means I took something old, an old crochet scarf that I had made before with tassels and it was just skinny and long…but apparently the popular style now is to have a “cowl”. Didn’t know what that was for awhile. I just called it the  “circle scarf”. Wish I had taken a picture of it for you before but I didn’t really know if it was going to work.

Doesn’t look bad for the new look …you can hardly tell that I “fixed” it up!

So here’s what I did:

Here’s another scarf I think I’m going to do it to! Take this ugly skinny scarf!

  1. Just embroider stitched the edges so take for example the scarf below: (in between the first set and the second set where I put them a little closer together.
  2. Then just stitch the top and bottom sides together.
  3. And then I’ll be making it thicker so I’ll be adding more rows after that.

Please, please comment below! I’d love to hear from you to see if I should continue posting my crazy ideas! =)))


So here’s the FINISHED crochet cowl from the 2nd picture! As you can tell I added some cream into it! I love it! ALSO because THIS scarf was shorter than the previous one I only crocheted together one side.
