Velvet Scarves, Hats, and Accessories

First up, let’s check out a few of my favorite accessory patterns! Think hats, headbands, and of course scarves.

Single Crochet Men’s Hat

I don’t know about you, but crocheting for men can be such a delicate process sometimes.

That’s why I love this Single Crochet Men’s Beanie! The velvet yarn gives it an extra coziness and warmth, while the single crochets make it masculine AND super easy to make! Any man in your life is sure to love this one!

Velvet Yarn Questions

What is velvet yarn good for?

Velvet yarn is great for wearables, accessories, home decor, and even amigurumi…pretty much anything! It is especially great for any project you want to be super soft. Use it in projects with simple stitches and the yarn will really shine. Velvet does not look as good (in my opinion) with fancy crochet stitches.

What do you do with baby velvet yarn?

Baby velvet yarn is simply a lighter weight version of regular velvet yarn (#4 weight rather than #5). You can use it for any of the same projects as regular velvet, but I do recommend finding a pattern specific for baby velvet.

What is a good stitch for velvet yarn?

Simple stitches like single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet. These simple stitches really allow the velvet yarn to shine!

Does Bernat velvet yarn shed?

In my personal experience, it has never shed. When working with it, the only part that would shed a tiny bit is the end. But once it is crocheted into a project, I’ve never had an issue.

Can Bernat velvet yarn be washed?

The care instructions on the label say to hand wash and dry flat, so you will be safest sticking to that.

How do you crochet a scarf with velvet yarn?

You can find a velvet scarf pattern, OR you can easily make a custom one yourself! Simply make a chain in the width you want your scarf to be. Then, choose a simple stitch like single crochet or double crochet and work back and forth in rows until it reaches your desired length!


Velvet yarn is a lovely thing to crochet with. People have mixed feelings about it, but personally I have fallen in love. Bernat Velvet yarn is particularly nice to work with, and you can make a variety of amazingly soft projects with it. I’ve made velvet scrunchies and hats and everyone loves them! I hope you liked this post and found the perfect velvet pattern to make for your own family and friends today.
