If I could pick only one crocheted throw blanket for my living room, THIS would be it!  It has the look and feel of an expensive brand name knit throw, but it’s special because it’s handmade. &#; My daughter and I sit with this afghan nearly each evening as we wind down for the night.  The drapey, super soft velvet feels like luxury and it’s simply the most comfortable blanket that we have.  I even added a little leather tag to it that says “Love” because it’s that cuddling, snuggling type of blanket.  There have been some really cute and velvety, chenille type Ugg blankets that have been in stores this year, and this blanket reminds me a bit of those!

Update: I just wanted to let you know that after use, I’ve noticed some loops coming out of the blanket. From talking with others, it seems this is the nature of the yarn.  While I’ve taken a needle and thread to weave in the loops, it may just continue.  Definitely consider this as a possibility before making the blanket.

Have you crocheted with a velvet yarn? When I heard that Lion Brand was coming out with the Vel-Luxe yarn, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.   I’d never worked with velvet before!  While I made a blanket from it this time, it would also be a lot of fun to make a cardigan or a hat.   I was concerned it might shed or be difficult to work with, however, it doesn’t shed at all. Not even a tiny bit, which surprised me.  It also maintained its softness.  Sometimes certain acrylics feel soft to me, but once I crochet them into a fabric they seem to become stiffer. Not this velvet.  It’s drapey, lovely and soft as can be.  I have absolutely no complaints and want to use it again.

During the design phase of this crocheted blanket ( fancy speak for how I decided to make it ), I tried several different stitches holding the two strands of yarn together.  One thing was true – stitches looked quite different with the yarn! First, I thought the granite stitch (here) would be perfect, but when I worked up a swatch it looked completely different than what I’m used to.  If you try it, you’ll see what I mean!  I don’t know if this was due to the fact I was holding two strands together, or the nature of the velvet, but it was rather interesting to see how some of my favorite stitches worked up in crochet.  It will be fun to try knit stitches sometime as well to see if they are any different.

In the end, I liked the clean, knit-like look of using half double crochet stitches through the back loop for this blanket.  The slight ribbing gives it a nice, understated texture and makes it cozy too. It’s also completely beginner friendly, so no being intimidated by this project. If you can count stitches, and know how to half double crochet, you are good to go with this pattern.  &#;

Below: SQUISH!!!

If you’re curious about the tag, it was very easy to make.  First, let me say that you might save yourself money by finding a shop on Etsy that will personalize tags for you.  I was in a bit of a hurry and didn’t have time to wait for tags to be made for me, so I did them myself.  I purchased scrap leather from Michaels and a set of leather stamps which included the letters of the alphabet.  I already had a leather hold punch at home and wax thread.  From there, I simply cut out a leather rectangle, stamped the word “LOVE” on my tag with the letter stamps, punched holes in each of the four corners and sewed it onto the corner of the blanket.  It was an investment, but I love that I now I have the letter stamps to make tags that say anything that I want! The stamps aren’t cheap, nor is the hole punch, so go to Michaels armed with one or more of their coupons that you can grab online.

I added poms to my blanket, but if I make it again, I’ll add tassels instead.  It’s a lot of work to give these poms just the right hair cut to have them looking clean.  You’ve also got to make the pom very tight and secure so that the slick velvety pieces don’t slide out! The tassels are just as beautiful as I did test out making a large one to see how they looked. It was much easier and just as nice.  But the poms are pretty, so if you’re up for the challenge, go for it!

Welcome to Daisy Farm Crafts!

Have you had a chance to try Bernat Velvet or Baby Velvet? We have been working with this yarn since it hit the yarn shelves over a year ago and would like to share with you everything we&#;ve learned about how to successfully crochet with it. 

You may have come across reviews that say &#;I absolutely love this yarn,&#; to &#;I absolutely hate this yarn.&#; We have been seeing those reviews too, and lately, we have been receiving many emails, messages, and questions asking for tips and our thoughts. So, after working with it for almost a year, we&#;re going to tell you a few things we&#;ve learned about velvet.

First, there are two kinds of velvet we have worked with: Bernat Baby Velvet and Bernat Velvet. The difference between the two is yarn weight and washability. Baby Velvet is machine washable, Velvet is hand washable. Baby Velvet is a 4 weight yarn, and Velvet is 5 weight. Pay close attention to which kind you have as it&#;s easy to confuse the labels, They look very similar. 


After making many projects with Velvet, three keys things we&#;ve discovered are 1. You must have tighter than normal tension. 2. What stitch you use matters. and 3. A practice swatch is a must.

I&#;m going to take you on my velvet journey now, and let you know how I discovered these three tips. 

One of the first projects I made with Bernat Velvet is this plaid scarf: 

All was going well until I finished the project and wrapped it around my daughter Annie&#;s neck and noticed that a few of my stitches had popped free or &#;wormed&#; their way loose. That is when I realized I wished I had used a smaller hook to keep my tension much tighter. Velvet is slippery. 

But what I did learn on that project was that I loved using the wide half double crochet stitch (WHDC or working your half double crochets in between the posts demonstrated in the graphic below) because I easily could find where to insert my hook.

hdc graphic

To achieve tighter tension, I went down a hook size that was recommended on the package. It made such a difference! It kept the velvet snug. I loved using that stitch so much, I made several more items, and so did my daughter Hannah. Below is a sample of infinity scarves made with W-HDC stitch and tight tension. 

But we just would be bored if that was the only stitch we used it for, so Hannah did a little bit more trial and added polka dot clusters with the WHDC stitch and made the Candy Dots Blanket: Those dots are HDC clusters and she made them as tight as she could. She is carrying the yarn through the row, and on the next row when she is using the grey again, she is reaching her hook underneath the carried colored yarn and pulling it up against the bottom of the row to really secure the yarn. (You can find more details in that post about the Candy Dots Blanket.)

But as she worked the border for that blanket, we really liked using Front and Back Post Double Crochet and found that stitch to be really secure as well. Here&#;s a look at the border: 

So then we experimented with that for headbands: 

WE LOVED IT! No loops popped free, and the stitch was so easy to find where to insert your hook. (We will definitely be making more this winter!)

So then we used that stitch to start creating new designs for blankets and throws. First I made the Diamond Ribbed Velvet Baby Blanket.

What I love about using the ribbing stitch or front and back post double crochet is that with normal yarn, those blankets can be so bulky, but with velvet, they have better drape and just the right amount of cozy. But that was with Baby Velvet. Hannah experimented with regular Velvet to see how that would turn out and she made her Crochet Ribbed Velvet Throw.

It turned out just as cozy as with Baby Velvet, but with a bit more weight. Still not bulky, it&#;s very soft and cozy and we absolutely love it. So much that I tweaked her design a bit, and made it for my friend&#;s daughter. We have found the most success with those two styles of stitches. We have tried others, and in order for them to be successful, we have to crochet very carefully to make sure our tension is tight. There is no room for error, because once a loop pops free, it&#;s very difficult to get it to go back in place. I have tried inserting my tapestry needle underneath the stitches to try and wiggle it back in place, but ultimately, I have to accept the imperfection. 

This is an example of the velvet berries blanket Hannah made and paid very close attention to her tension:

Another of my favorite  ways to used velvet is in my improv crochet technique using the wide HDC stitch and carrying yarn throughout and switching colors on a whim: bernat velvet improv crochet

And a final example is the Velvet Flowers Blanket Hannah made: 

Our third tip that is a must is that you make a swatch. You need to practice the pattern you choose and make sure you are using the proper hook and proper stitch. We wash the swatches to test and lay them out to dry. (We have not put velvet into a dryer.) Then you will know how your project will turn out. 

Here is a picture of the Unicorn Stripes blanketafter it has been washed in a laundry bag, in a machine washer and laid flat out to dry. 

Hannah used the mesh stitch with the Unicorn Stripes blanket, and kept very close attention to her tension. It turned out beautiful, but this is after she had worked with velvet and knew to keep her tension tight. 

Here&#;s one more velvet project that combines the WHDC and Ribbing that might be a small project to begin with if you are new to velvet:

And here is one more made by Nicolina that shows how modern and vibrant the colors are: 

So to sum up the three points one more time: 

1. Keep your tension tight, use a smaller hook if necessary. 

2. Use a stitch that won&#;t pull free easily. We suggest on your first project the wide half double crochet or front and back post double crochet.

3. A practice swatch is a must. 

Oh, and I just remembered one more project I made with velvet: a snuggly newborn gown

This is what velvet dreams are made of! 

Anyway, we really hope this helps you with what we have learned so far about working with velvet. 

xoxo, Tiffany 

P.S. A post edit: We also are now recommending that you only change colors or add in a new skein at the end of a row. We also advocate tying a square knot as you change color, you may still leave a tail to weave in, but having it on the side of the blanket and covered by a border later will help secure the end. 

Changing colors or adding a new skein mid-row, will result in tails poking out in the middle of your blanket.

How to Crochet Afghan With Velvet Yarn


Crochet Afghan Closeup


I have had this velvet yarn in my collection for quite a few months but didn’t know what to design with it. The first thought that came to mind was slippers. So you can expect some velvety soft slippers soon.


Crochet Blanket Pattern


Designing with this yarn was tricky as the stitches would just blend in and not show a pattern. I experimented with different stitches and finally settled for this stitch which was a V-stitch variation, but I didn’t like the big gaps.


I modified the stitch pattern to make it less lacy but still show some texture, and I added a picot border to complete the look. I feel the border looks great on this yarn. What do you think?

How to Crochet an Afghan with Velvet yarn- Tips

1. The stitches can be hard to see if you use a dark or white color yarn. So start your blanket with a light color stripe. Once you are past the first row, it will be easy to work the stitch pattern.


2. Since the yarn is slippery in nature, I tied a knot with the 2 tails before working over the tails to hide them in the border.

Note: Every time you join a new color, fasten off the previous color.

Welcome to Daisy Farm Crafts!

Crochet Velvet Dotted Lines Blanket

My mom and I have been wanting to try this Bernat Velvet yarn ever since we first saw it come out and I was really excited when Yarnspirations sent us some to try out a few weeks ago.  I did lots of different practice swatches with different stitches until I finally decided I wanted to just keep it simple by using half double crochet working in between the posts.

This stitch is exactly like normal half double crochet (YO, insert your hook, YO, pull through, YO, pull through all 3 loops), except you are working in between the posts of the stitches below instead of the tops of the stitches below.  Here is a short video clip if you want to see how this is done:

(If you have trouble loading the video, you can also view it on YouTube.)

After trying out several different stitches with this velvet yarn, my mom and I both agree that it works best with a tighter stitch and a tighter tension.  I tend to be a loose crocheter so when I first started my blanket I noticed that there were some loops popping up from stitches that weren&#;t in tight, but as soon as I made my tension tighter I didn&#;t have any problems. If you tend to be a loose crocheter like me, I would definitely recommend going down a hook size.

The yarn is so soft and squishy and I really love how it worked up into a blanket!

Crochet Velvet Dotted Lines Blanket


(Finished size 31 in. x 41 in.)

2 (oz) skeins of Bernat Velvet yarn in Smokey Violet

1 (oz) skein of Bernat Velvet yarn in White

Size J or K Hook

Tapestry Needle


(A PDF of this pattern is also available on Etsy.)


Chain 70 (or any multiple of 7) with Smokey Violet.

(Note: Normally when my mom and I use the half double crochet stitch we like to start by going into the third chain from the hook and chaining 2 at the end of each row, but because this yarn is so pliable, I decided to start in the second chain from the hook and only chain 1 at the end of each row.  If you&#;d rather start in the third chain and chain 2 at the end of each row, that is perfectly fine, just be sure to add an extra chain to your base chain so that you will have enough stitches to evenly line up your bobbles.) 

ROW 1: In the second chain from the hook, work a half double crochet (HDC).  Work a HDC in each chain to the end.  Then chain one and turn.

ROW Work 4 rows of HDC, working in between the posts of the stitches of the row below (see video demonstration above).  Chain one and turn at the end of each row. When you reach the end of the 5th row, pull through with White on the last stitch and cut the Smokey Violet, leaving a tail long enough to weave in later. (There should be three loops on your hook when you pull through with White.)  Chain one and turn.

ROW 6: Work 6 HDCs (working in between the posts) and then DC4tog (double crochet 4 together) to make a bobble.  You&#;re going to work the bobble in between the posts, just like the HDCs. Here is how to DC4tog: Yarn over (YO) and pull up a loop, now pull through two (2 loops left on hook). YO into the same space as before, pull up a loop, pull through two, (3 loops left on the hook). YO and do it again, (4 loops left) YO, do the same again, (you should have 5 loops on your hook).  Now YO and pull through all 5 loops. Stitch is complete.

Work 6 more HDCs, then another bobble.  Continue the pattern of 6 HDCs, one bobble until you reach the end of the row, ending with 6 HDCs.  On the last stitch, pull through with Smokey Violet and cut the White, leaving a tail long enough to weave in later. Chain one and turn.

ROW Work 5 rows of HDC in Smokey Violet (working in between the posts), chaining one and turning at the end of each row.  When you reach the end of the 11th row, pull through with White.

ROW Repeat row 6.

Repeat rows 7 through 12 until your blanket measures 41 inches long or your desired length.  

When the blanket is finished, weave all the ends in with a tapestry needle.

Crochet Velvet Dotted Lines Blanket


ROW 1: Pull up a loop in any corner and chain 3. DC around the entire blanket, work 3 DCs into each corner stitch.

ROW 2: When you reach the corner you started with, work 3 DCs into that corner, then go around the blanket again, this time alternating front and back post double crochet.  A front post DC means you insert your hook from front to back around the post of the next DC and work your DC.  A back post DC means you insert your hook from the back to the front and work a DC.  Here is a short video clip to show you how this is done:

(If you have trouble loading the clip, you can also view the video on YouTube)

When you get to the corners of this row, you will want to continue the pattern of alternating front and back post double crochet, but you will work three stitches around the corner post.  So, for example, if you get to the corner post and you are supposed to work a front post DC, then work a front post DC, a back post DC, and a front post DC all around that corner post.  Then in the next stitch you would continue the alternating pattern, working the opposite of whichever stitch you just used (in this example, you would work a back post DC).

ROW  When you finish row 2, work 3 alternating front post/back post DCs into the corner you started with and repeat row 2 two more times around the blanket, until you have four rows total.  (Or you can go around as many times as you’d like to get your desired border height &#; I made it around four times before I ran out of yarn.) When you reach the corner you started with, slip stitch into the corner and tie off.
