Easy Velvety Scarf

This Easy Velvety Scarf is fun to crochet and wear! Bernat’s Velvet Yarn (by Yarnspirations) is sooooo soft and easy to crochet with. I love how it feels while crocheting and how it feels around my neck. This yarn comes in some beautiful colors and in large skeins which is plenty to make this project.

I ❤ velvet yarn so much that I have created several projects with it that you can see here.

Crochet Infinity Scarf Stays in Place

Crochet Infinity Scarves are great to wear in the winter because they keep you warm and add a lot of pizzazz to your outfit. But sometimes I find them hard to wrap around my neck so they look good. So, I made this easy velvety scarf to stay put by sewing the layers of the scarf together while I sew the short ends together. This way you are guaranteed to have your crochet infinity scarf lay nicely around your neck and look its best.

Stitches Used in the Easy Velvety Scarf

The Easy Velvety Scarf has just 2 stitches in it – single crochet and a simple textured stitch I like to call the “Yarn Over Slip Stitch” – see the explanation or watch the video below to know exactly how to make this stitch. You’ll realize that it gives great texture and interest without being complicated. It has become one of my favorite stitches and I love experimenting with different fibers to see how they change the look of this simple crochet stitch. When you crochet the stitch it creates the texture on the Wrong Side of the row you are working on – so the “back” now becomes the “front”!

Your Easy Velvety Scarf is Complete!

And there you have it – your Easy Velvety Scarf is complete! Did you like working with this velvet yarn? Wasn’t it so smooth between your fingers? Wait until you wear the scarf – so soft and warm! Sometimes it can be difficult to see your stitches with velvet yarn, so I recommend choosing a lighter color if this is your first time crocheting with it. I think this project would make a great gift. The velvet yarn looks so classy and luxurious that anyone would love to add it to their winter outfit!

    1. Hi – Yes, at the end of each special stitch row, you would do a ch 1 and then work the single crochets in the next row.
      As for the special stitch row, you can do a ch-1 turning chain or not – it’s your choice. The video shows both ways of doing it. 🙂

  1. I am glad you posted this video. About 6
    months ago I was going through my old yarn stach. Found 2 half balls of velvet yarns a dark green and a gray. They seem a little bit stiffer than the new velvet yarn. I am sure they will be a good substitute. Thank you for your video.

    1. Glad you found some velvet yarn to work with- it’s so fun! Hope you enjoy working on your project. Happy crocheting!

  2. I took the jewelry class with you and it was lovely. I look forward to using my two skeins of Bernat Velvet. Thanks for the patterns. Hope I win so I can see your designs in the magazine. Thanks for the email.

    1. Hi Deb! Glad you enjoyed the jewelry class – you are welcome for the patterns. You’ll love crocheting with the yarn. 🙂
