Today we will be working up a super cozy project!
The Hygge Blanket.
This throw has definitely made it's way to the top of my "Favorite Cozy Blankets I've made list" mostly do to the fact I despise crocheting blankets and i've honestly only made 3 in my crochet career.
As for the name; Hygge. I chose this Danish name specifically because of it's wondrous meaning.
" In Danish, hygge (pronounced “HUE-gah”) is one such word. Though there are many ways to describe hygge, we see it simply as the Danish ritual of enjoying life's simple pleasures. Friends. Family. Graciousness."
Let me tell you guy's WHY this blanket is so magical and squishy. I used Bernat Maker Home Dec yarn in Cream (CLICK HERE). This yarn can pretty much be described as a tube. Yes, a cotton - nylon mix tube-type yarn. I know, it sounds so weird but trust me when I say
THE SQUISH is out of this world and the Stitch definition is AMAZING.
If any of you are like me and have trouble with yarn snagging when crocheting with a larger hook, you won't have that problem here! This yarn glides off your hook allowing this throw to work up in a breeze.
Before we get into the nitty-gritty to this pattern, if you are a visual crocheter (like myself) I have included a video tutorial via my Youtube Channel.
After wet blocking and lying flat:

Fasten Off. Weave in ends.
This is optional. Attaching fringe to both the foundation row and last row give this blanket a gorgeous “bohemian” look. You can easily attach fringe by following the steps below.
Step 1 - Cut 2 strands of yarn that measure 12” across
Step 2 - Insert hook through the back of your first stitch, pull both loops half way through.
Step 3 - Pull remainder of strands through the loops on your hook.
Make sure to skip every other stitch when attaching your fringe across rows.
