Crochet Blue Velour Cover to Jazz Up Your Ottoman

Crochet Blue Velour Ottoman

I bought a small ottoman on clearance and it was great…until it started to look old and blah. Kids have a way of wearing out even the cutest furniture. With everything on sale at the end of December, I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of skeins of a luxurious dark blue velour called, “Phil Velours” in the color Caban (click here).

It’s so soft and smooth that it feels great on your hands, but, don’t make too many mistakes. If the yarn gets caught it pulls off the base string. It reminds me of a pipe cleaner when you pull the fuzz off the wire.

Pattern (in general)

So, as long as you pick a simple stitch your comfortable with, you shouldn’t have any trouble. This ottoman is a Double Crochet stitch (US terms) all the way around. I increased the circle in multiples of 6 until it was the size of the top of the ottoman. Then I did one round of BLO-DC  to transition, and then I continued to DC around until it was the height I needed to cover the ottoman. For a great tutorial on doing a Double Crochet in the round, check out CROCHET: How to crochet a flat circle by Bella Coco.

So here it is. I turned a cute, inexpensive ottoman into a “fancy” piece of furniture that feels great on your skin.
