5. The Delightful Velvet Headband by Straight Hooked
As a little gift to you, I’d like to share my pattern for the Delightful Velvet Headband. One of the things I’ve been reading on social media is that people get frustrated when the velvet yarn stretches, especially when making items like headbands. My headband pattern includes a hair elastic at the base of the neck and is made intentionally small to allow for the stretch. This headband has been a big seller for me, and I hope you love it as much as I do!
6. Swan Amigurumi by Spin a Yarn Crochet
A while back, I picked up a bunch of velvet yarn on clearance without any particular project in mind. But once I had them all lined up together, the Black and Blissful Greige colours together really started to speak to me and I couldn’t get the image of a fuzzy baby swan out of my head. Have you ever seen a baby swan? They are called cygnets and they are little balls of grey fluff with black beaks. They really don’t resemble fully grown swans all that much. I thought the smooth, luxurious feel and look of the velvet yarn would be perfect to replicate the soft down of a cygnet so I decided to design one!
7. Sleepy Mallow Bunny by CoCo Crochet Lee
Easter is right around the corner, and if you are like me, you’re thinking about how you can make something special for your little ones this year. We have a bunch of yarn in our stashes just begging to be turned into adorable Easter bunnies, just like our friend Sleepy Mallow Bunny here!
8. Emma-Noel’s Velvet Bear by CoCo Crochet Lee
Sometimes you get your hands on a yarn and the yarn just speaks to you. When I touched Yarnspiration’s new Bernat Velvet yarn, I knew that I had to make something ultra soft, and cuddly. Emma-Noel took one look at it and said that she would love a cuddly bear to snuggle up with in this yarn, so I am thrilled to introduce to you Emma-Noel’s Velvet Bear!
9. Cygnet Amigurumi Pattern by Spin a Yarn Crochet
This post is Part 2 of 2 of my Swan and Baby Cygnet pattern set. To check out the Momma Swan, check out this post. Also, if you’re interested in hearing the inspiration for these patterns, as well as why I’m kinda, super proud of them, check out the intro to that post as well. As usual, this pattern is made in the same style as my Ragdoll patterns; separate pieces worked in flat rows and then joined together to give them that unique 2-D look. This pattern has just two separate pieces, with no colour-work and no sewing (!!!).
10. The Evie Pullover by Evelyn and Peter
11. The Velvet Crochet Scrunchie by And She Laughs Crochet
I am a 90s kid for sure and I wore a lot of leggings with stir-ups, big sweatshirts, and SCRUNCHIES back in the day! I for one, am happy these looks are coming back! I just think a scrunchie makes a topknot even better!!
As soon as I saw Bernat Velvet yarn I thought it would make an amazing scrunchie. This is a super simple project that you can whip up in an hour! I can’t wait to see yours!
12. The Velvet Headband by Rich Textures Crochet
Once our deep freeze weather starts to subside in my corner of Canada, I like to set aside the full hat and switch to a headband! This year I’m enjoying my new Velvet Headband Crochet Pattern.
When I picked up the Bernat Velvet yarn from Yarnspirations, I will confess, I was itching to try it! I had heard so many mixed reviews of it, but was drawn to the variety of colours and how soft it is!

18. The Lucy Beanie by Meghan Makes Do
Have you jumped on the Velvet Yarn bandwagon yet? I started seeing this new velvet yarn everywhere on Instagram a few months ago and at first I didn’t think I would like it. I’m usually not a fan of those trendy yarns, but then one night on a solo trip to Joann’s I stopped to feel the velvet and it was love at first touch! Seriously, I have never felt a yarn this soft before. I grabbed a skein and couldn’t wait to design something new with it.
19. The Chaos Emerald Scarf by Knot Bad
It can be difficult to find a yarn that hits your neck just right, but Lion Brand has the softest yarn on the skin, and that’s their Vel-luxe yarn! This scarf is perfect for the winter months with its gorgeous drape. Instead of making bobbles, the balls will be made separately, which gives it even more of a dramatic look! And of course, the following touch are the tassels, and a step by step photo tutorial can be found below to make your own!
20. Velvet Headband by Bear Rye
So I gave into the velvet yarn trend and of course had to make a headband. This is my first in a series of velvet patterns.

22. Heart Eyes Sleep Mask by Blackstone Designs
I thought this pattern would be super fun to give to my daughter and it could even be really fun for her to give them out to her first grade friends (heck, it’s even something a high schooler could give out!)
I hope you enjoyed all of these velvet patterns, and maybe found the inspiration for your next crochet project!
