"Learn how to crochet with velvet yarn and have beautiful results. Crocheting a blanket using a chunky velvet yarn is probably the most luxurious feeling afghan that I have made yet. You might be wondering why I felt a need to write a special article on how to crochet using velvet yarn. Well, the first few small projects that I made using this yarn came with a learning curve. Therefore, to help you have lovely and successful results, I wanted to share these tips with you. Types of Velvet Yarn Velvet yarn tends to be made of polyester and it comes in chunky, thin, twisted, and a crushed look. There is a wide variety of color shades to choose from. Just a bit about care of finished projects using this type of yarn. Most of the velvet yarn care calls for hand washing and hanging to dry or lying flat. Since this tends to be a shiny yarn that can be a bit finicky it is a good idea to stay away from dry cleaning. "
