‘Hygge’ (pronounced ‘Hoo-ga’) is a Danish word, which means cosiness. Imagine being in a warm and welcoming environment whilst enjoying the good things in life. Snuggling on the sofa crafting, enjoying a good meal, wearing your favourite sweater, drinking a warm cup of tea, getting together with friends to talk and create, its all Hygge.
Designer Kirsten Ballering from blog Haak Maar Raak has been working with Scheepjes to plan this beautiful Scandinavian themed crochet-along. From the very first Scheepjes CAL, people have been asking when the famous Stone Washed yarns will appear in a CAL and now we can tell you that will be this year! We teamed it up with our colourful Catona yarns for a beautiful contrast. Kirsten was inspired by traditional Scandinavian designs to decorate this wrap with a combination of both crochet and cross-stitch.
Kits are available in 4 colour themes: Rainbow, Pastel, Jewel and Simy's Choice (The Danish Mermaid).
Disclaimer: the official kit boxes have since sold out, but we're offering you all the yarn you need to make the Hygge CAL.
Our kits contain:
10 skeins of Scheepjes Stone Washed 50g balls
11 skeins of Catona 25g balls
1 Scheepjes wooden button
1 embroidery needle set
The pattern is free and can be found here.
