Velvet Celtic Heart Scarf

This Velvet Celtic Heart Scarf is easy to crochet with a fun one-row repeat stitch pattern!  Have you ever crocheted a “V-stitch”? A “V-stitch” is a classic crochet stitch that can come in many forms and variations.  It is basically 2 or more tall stitches separated by chain stitches (usually 1, 2 or 3) in the middle.  This creates the look of the letter “V”. For this crochet scarf pattern you’ll be making a V-stitch with a post stitch on either side. These post stitches give the stitch pattern a lot of depth and texture.  I think it looks great with the luxurious velvet yarn! Plus, if you need help with the stitch pattern or the post stitches, then you can watch the step-by-step video tutorial here.

Celtic Knot Heart

Since Valentine’s Day is coming up I wanted to use my Celtic Knot Heart design in a new way. (Last year I created this Celtic Heart Garland with the heart design) Then when I saw the beautiful deep pink of the velvet yarn while in Joann’s last month, I had the idea to combine the yarn with a Celtic Knot Heart.  This heart design is quick to make and very easy to weave. Plus, I include the free printout of the Celtic Heart diagram and a video tutorial of how to weave the knot here.

Bernat’s Velvet Yarn

Have you used Bernat’s Velvet yarn yet? I highly recommend it!  It is super soft and comes in great colorways.  The best kind of stitch pattern for this yarn is a stitch pattern that has you working mainly in spaces because it can be difficult to see your stitches with the velvet yarn. So, with the stitch pattern we have going on in this scarf, you’ll have success because most of it is working in ch-1 spaces and around the post of the stitch – yay!
