My daughters absolutely love velvet yarn. And who can blame them? It’s the softest, cozyiest, squishiest yarn imaginable. So it’s natural that I would want to crochet a sweater for them from this soft yarn.

This gender neutral pullover made with soft and bulky velvet yarn will soon become any child’s favorite winter sweater. With a simple modern drop shoulder design, the sweater is crocheted in four pieces that are seamed together. The bulky yarn and simple style make it a great project for beginners or more experienced crocheters who want to make a quick gift for loved ones.
