My Crochet: Small Scarf Becomes Big Cowl

Do you remember the small crochet basketweave scarf I made when I was crocheting my way through Sharon Silverman’s book Crochet Scarves? I decided that I wanted to do something more with it and ended up turning it into a huge oversized cowl.

The Changes I Made

I didn’t really like the short fringe on this crochet scarf. I ended up removing that part. Then I took a black yarn and started crocheting all the way around the scarf. I worked a lot of xdc (basically crochet x’s and some half double crochets). When it was fat enough, I added on a few more rows to either end to lengthen it. Then I joined the two ends to make a large infinity scarf, which I wear doubled up as an oversized cowl.
