Bernat Velvet Yarn

Daniel and I are predicting the Bernat Velvet yarn to be one of the biggest yarns for 2018 / 2019. Once you feel it, hook with it… you may just fall in love with it. Perfectly coloured natural shimmer. It’s heaven gliding through your fingers.

This product is available at Joann Fabrics & Crafts, Michaels and Walmart. Other retailers may be carrying this product as well. Some of the retailers may be carrying only select colours. See a store near you.

I’ve crocheted a scarf and afghan with this yarn. Words hardly describe it. My friend Shannon is wearing one of the patterns I did for this product. The pattern will be released in the future.

35 thoughts on “What To Do with Bernat Velvet Yarn

  1. This yarn makes a GREAT sweater. I used the pattern by Hey Carrie for “Oversized Crochet Bobble Cardigan (no buttons) Sweater.” This pattern works up great for this yarn because the back and front two panels are all one piece — all you have to do is attach sleeves to it. It is the 2nd sweater I made (I first used this same pattern with the Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn; I love it, but the sweater is so heavy and hard to work with as you get further along.)

    So, I decided to try the Bernat Velvet yarn for this pattern, and by far is it the best sweater EVER!!! People always ask me (or boldy come right up and start touching it) can I feel it? Got lots of compliments on it. I made this sweater really long, just above the knees. The beauty of this yarn is it is so soft, you can tie it and make it shorter if you want to, or keep it long and open — AWESOME yarn for this. I also made beanies out of it, and although other people liked the beanies, I didn’t care for it in this yarn because it has too much softness for a beanie — may try to make a beret using it.

  2. I made some velvet ballet slippers with it and LOVE it for those. Pattern at hearthookhome.com. The pattern is called Chunky Ballet Slippers. I used a J hook for them though and did 14 rows for about a size 8-9 womens. Going to try some cowls with it next.

  3. I am seeing hand wash and dry flat for an afghan? 🙁
    Ugh I don’t think that will be very practical – I wish I would have noticed when I purchased.

    • I recently made some beanies with this velvet yarn . They turned out great using this procedure. Place the product in a MESH LAUNDRY BAG and wash on a cool cycle that is set on DELICATE. If you are doing a blanket, you can find the mesh laundry bags in extra large and a blanket would probably fit in one of those. They’re usually the ones that the kids take away to college. They are pretty big. Once the washer has stopped, throw the product into the dryer WHILE STILL IN THE BAG and set it on the low setting. Remove it still damp, then take it out of the mesh bag and laid out flat to dry. My beanies turned out wonderful that way. Have yarnspirations look into trying that to see if they can do it that way. As far as having too many tie-offs on the yarn, just weave then in after re-cutting them, so they have a longer tail and weave them in using a darning-needle. You really can’t see them at all that way.

    • I made my mother a shawl out of this yarn. It washes and dries great on the lower settings of my machines. Have washed 3 times and no problems. I do tie the ends in a knot before weaving in the ends. Love how soft it feels.

  4. love this yarn just made a scarf with it. I did find a lot of joins though.
    Looking for a pattern for a hat. If you have one.

  5. I am on my second crocheted ribbed beanie hat and adding a faux fur pom pom..and matching infinityscarf.. It took a while to get used to this yarn cuz it’s so slick, but have had only one skein with a join in the middle. Remember to hand wash your product once done..and not to machine wash it. If you want to dry it in the dryer, be sure to use a mesh laundry bag. If not, it could loose some of its fibers.
    Next I will be making some scrunchies with it.

    • I’m currently making an afghan, so easy, in DC3Tog. I tried the Cabbage Patch stitch, basically three DC, the next row is reverse DC. Didn’t work well for me. I tried a few other stitches, then the DC3Tog, perfect. I’m using the velvet in Navy and Softened Blue b/c the shops carried so few colors. If I can find a third color that would work, I’ll add it. Hope this helps.

  6. I too have ripped my stiches out 4 times. I was trying to knit a blanket and yarn is moving every place as it is so slick. It feels great but is not knitting well for my project. I am knitting 4 strands with large needles (70) and would have thought this would knit great but so far NOT. Any feedback would be great before abandoning this and returning the yarn in 2 colors.

  7. I am doing a blanket with this yarn and I am extremely disappointed with it. There are so many joins in each ball (I am up to my 4th ball of yarn, joins in everyone of them). The other thing I have noticed is that is changes texture at some of the joins as well at the look. It goes from velvety feeling to almost a fuzzy feeling and the yarn looks varegated (not sure how else to describe it). I find it really noticeable and as a result have several half balls of yarn I cannot use. I definately will not be using it again!

    • Laura, i to was a little disappointed with the velvet yarn while making a throw, ( i didn’t finish). Some parts look like you have a hole or missed a switch. I thought i would finish, then wash it and it might straighten that out. I thought maybe it was the stitch, double or half double. What stitch were you using?

  8. If you go to youtube and search for “How to crochet a blanket poncho velvet” a video gives instructions for a poncho using the Bernat Velvet. It’s gorgeous. I haven’t started it yet, but I have Joann’s coupons for October 4th 50% off regular price. I’ll be buying the Bernat velvet and making myself a poncho!

  9. How do you join yarn with this? I tried a magic knot and several others and the knots wouldn’t stay. It’s also too thick to just cross cross, so what do you recommend? Thanks!

  10. Mikey,

    Is the pattern coming soon. I bought some of this yarn and am having a really hard time working with it. I start a pattern but keep findind myself unsatisfied with the “look” I have started and taken out my work atleast a dozen times. I am not sure if the pattern I am trying to use is just not working well with the velvet yarn or if its really is the yarn I am struggling with. I feel like a pattern to follow will allow me to really gauge if its the pattern/needle size, the yarn being hard to work with, or even if its just me. Any time line on when you will have the scarf pattern up?

  11. Luck of the draw i guess?! I wasnt able to find and end piece to start on either side and gave up and just started roling from the outside anf i also had 3 joins in mine ? its not the end of the world and the yarn can be easily changed out to a new strand but still a little annoying .

    Have you done anything else with this yarn? When i found it the other day i thought it was going to be my new favorite but when i tried it last night im going to have a hard time finding my stitches. Will try a bigger hook but i yarn tight so could still be an issue. Lol

    Any project ideas would be awesome.

  12. Hi Aly,
    I suggest you give this yarn another try. I just bought two balls myself and haven’t found that issue so it might just be that ball in particular. I have started multiple projects with it. I really enjoy feeling it flow through my fingers.

  13. While the yarn looks and feels gorgeous, I am incredibly disappointed with the quality. In the first 25 yards of the yarn, I found 3 joins. Thankfully, I’m using it for amiguruni so I’m able to hide the joints inside. When I first purchase the yarn prior to working with it, I also intended to use it to make an afghan. Due to the frequency of joins, though, I won’t be doing that. What a shame as thrbyarn feels so beautiful. I just don’t want to be stopping my afghan ever 10-12 yards to work in loose ends.

    • Hi Aly,

    • I have had this same issue, making an afghan for a gift on my 3rd ball and each has had several joins. But still going to finish because it’s stunning. Wish there was a video on the lattice Shell afghan, started that several times (which is why I bought the yarn) no matter what it was so loose and looked holey. I am sure it was user error, but switched to checkerboard. If I can figure out what I am doing wrong will give the Lattice Shell another try – I bought enough yarn to make 2.

      • Don’t buy from Hobby Lobby. Those have lots of joints. Buy anywhere else but it has to be Bernat velvet, nothing else.

  14. This yarn is amazing, soft as an angel’s kiss! However, I’m using it for an amigurumi penguin pattern by Irene Strange, and I have no trouble breaking it by hand.

  15. Directly below the paragraph descussing the Merino wool content of this yarn, there is a features list stating 100% polyester. Which is it?? Poor proofreading.

    • Just looks like a little “oopsie” on the initial description of yarn content. (That description applies to the new Caron x Pantone yarn. The Bernat Velvet is indeed 100 % polyester. I purchased both yarns today 🙂 Both beautiful and so soft 🙂

  16. Love the look of this yarn. Cannot wait to touch it. Hoping Joann’s will have it in stock soon for the CAL. No luck so far trying to buy online or in the store.

  17. The colors are gorgeous. I have a question. In your description of the yarn, you wrote “This yarn is a mix of Merino Wool, Nylon and Acrylic.“ However below the paragraph, it is written that the yarn is 100% polyester??
    I am allergic to polyester and cannot crochet with any polyester. It would be a shame if I could not use this enchanting yarn to make beautiful afghans and blankets etc.
