13 Examples of Upcycled Crochet for Crafting Inspiration

We love upcycling! There is so much work and love that goes into creating a crochet piece that it’s hard to imagine its life coming to an end. Luckily, upcycling lets the life of a crocheted piece go on and on!

As styles change, even the most beloved hand-crocheted pieces can lose their luster. However, there’s no reason to let those items collect in the attic or the back of the closet. Everything from blankets to doilies can be repurposed and given a new life.

Check out some of these items and we think you’ll be inspired to do a little upcycling of your own!
