The KNIT SAFARI Chunky Velvet Top is easy to knit and easy to wear! Perfect for throwing on with jeans and a camisole for day, or pairing with a pleated mini and heels for the evening, this chenille knit jumper adds a splash of modern luxury to your knitted wardrobe.

The Chunky Velvet Top is a DIY knitting pattern for an oversized velvet sweater, knitted seamlessly bottom-up, from the hem to the underarms, with a gently dipped back hem. The bell sleeves and wide, comfortable neckline keep this chenille knit jumper on-trend and timeless.


The Chunky Velvet Top is an oversized fit, with a comfy body and oversized balloon sleeves.

The model is a UK size 10-12 and is wearing the Chunky Velvet Top in size medium.

Can't find this yarn near you, or not sure if the yarn in your stash will work? We always recommend that you knit a test swatch to check your gauge before starting out, and finding the right combination of needle size and type and yarn to match the gauge in the pattern.
