Even though BERNAT velvet yarn is not the easiest to work with, at the same time it is so soft that it quickly became one of the favorite yarns for crochet aficionados for a cuddly blanket. Therefore, if you’ve found some amazing velvet yarn colors, it is time to create an amazing crochet blanket.

The first thing to consider when you are picking a pattern and a hook to use is to keep in mind the structure of this yarn. First of all, it is similar to a bottle brush in texture: one strong thread in the middle and a myriad of tiny little ‘bristles’ that create the velvet yarn strand.

The second thing to remember, BERNAT velvet yarn is very slippery. For this reason, to achieve consistency in your crochet fabric, I suggest crocheting a little tighter than you would normally do.  Accordingly, I’ve used H-8 5 mm crochet hook for this crochet baby blanket.

How to avoid mistakes

Under those circumstances, one of the common mistakes you’d see when crocheting with BERNAT velvet yarn is to see pulled strands of yarn. For this reason, crochet tighter than you will usually, check your work often and practice with BERNAT velvet yarn on a swatch before starting a project.

Furthermore, if you are looking for pastel colors, check also the line of BERNAT Baby Velvet yarns. As a matter of fact, that’s how I picked Velvet yarn in Misty Green from the clearance bin.

Most importantly, you must pick the right crochet stitch for BERNAT Velvet Yarn. I must emphasize, the textured waffle stitch works great for this velvet yarn blanket.
