Fun Faux Fur Crochet Pattern

One of my favorite parts of the winter months is wearing thick, cozy jackets. My front closet is packed with coats in a wide array of styles and colors. However, my absolute favorites are my faux fur ones. Jackets like that were inspiration for the Luxe Pullover, a snuggly crochet quarter zip that’s glamorous and, more importantly, cozy! I mean, what could be better than some super cozy and furry yarn for your crochet projects? The best thing about this crochet project is that it doesn’t look like a crochet piece at all. Whenever I wear it, people always ask me where I bought it which is always so flattering! So this crochet item brings elegance to any outfit, even the “Saturday morning grocery run” outfit.

Faux Yarn

The super bulky yarn used in this crochet quarter zip design is the fabulous Knit Picks Fable Fur Yarn. It is a super bulky 100% polyester faux yarn (no animals were harmed in the production of this pullover!). The bulkiness of this yarn allows your project to work up quickly. I had never used it, or any faux yarn, prior to this project, but I am now in love. It’s a super, super soft furry yarn. If you crochet with a pet on your lap, don’t be surprised if you look down and realize you’ve been petting the yarn for the last half hour. Plus, unlike our beloved cats and dogs, this yarn does not shed. Shedding yarn is the bane of my existence, but this super fluffy yarn doesn’t seem to lose any of its fibers. So your crochet projects will look like new for the long haul!

Knit Picks Fable Fur Yarn comes in over a dozen different colors, which is really amazing for a more exotic yarn like this one. I’ve made a Luxe Pullover in Corvo (black) and one in Eisbar (white), but there are a ton of other great options, including some very subtle earth tones and even a couple of pinks! I already have plans to make a faux fur hoodie and a faux fur jacket soon using all the different colors available!

Knit Picks Fable Fur is not too expensive, which is good because for this project you will need quite a few skeins of it. Most people use this yarn for trim or to add flair to a more traditional crochet garment, but I decided to try making an entire project out of it. And I was glad I did, because it turned out great!

Crochet Hook & Stitches

I crocheted the Luxe Pullover using one of my trusty Furls Streamline Resin hooks. They are designed to be more comfortable to hold than thinner hooks. Additionally, they look great, and it’s important to look great when you’re making a sweater that will also…look great. LOL. (Check out this post I did on Furls Crochet hooks to find out more information on why I think they’re fabulous!). For this particular crochet project, I used an 8.0 mm crochet hook.

This fabulous faux yarn pullover is crafted using double crochet stitches. That’s it – just double crochet, nothing crazy or complex, so it truly is a very easy pattern. And really, it’s better to keep it simple with furry yarn until you’ve worked with it for a while. There is a little bit of a learning curve to it. Unlike regular yarn, this faux yarn requires you to “feel” each of the crochet stitches as you go.

The zipper at the top can be purchased off Amazon or at your favorite local craft store. It’s very easy to install and requires only some basic sewing skills. I wouldn’t even spend the time breaking out the sewing machine for this one; it can be hand stitched pretty quickly.

The finished product is really unlike anything else I’ve ever crocheted. The thick bulkiness of the yarn makes it look like a solid fabric and you would have no idea it was actually homemade crochet. It’s definitely a great project to take on if you want something a little bit different from the normal realm of crocheted garments.

Tips & Tricks

For this crochet project, I highly suggest you use stitch markers. It is an easy way to help keep track of your stitches! It’s also a great way to keep everything organized as you’re crocheting, which is especially important for faux yarn. Another good idea will be to use a row counter. This will help you keep track of your rows and I use this tool for every single project!

I hope you love your faux fur crochet pattern!

There’s something about faux fur that makes it so special – maybe it’s because it’s both luxurious-looking and incredibly comfortable.

Happy Crocheting!
