Hey friends! I’m super excited to team up with Red Heart to introduce one of their new yarns – Red Heart Hygge™!
Have you heard about the Hygge trend? Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) is a Danish word meaning creating a warm, cozy atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with family and friends. Creating a warm and cozy home is the essence of farmhouse life, and as a farmhouse blogger I always try to achieve Hygge in my decor.
I don’t know what could be more Hygge than snuggling up under a knitted blanket by a warm fireplace with a cup of tea and a good book. That’s why the incredibly soft and gentle Red Heart Hygge is the perfect yarn for this knitted throw blanket pattern!

Hygge Knitted Throw Blanket Pattern
What you will need:
- Red Heart Hygge in Cloud (or the color of your choice), 7 skeins – each skein is 141 g/5 oz, 121 meters/132 yards.
- Circular Knitting Needles, size 9mm/US 13/UK 00
- Yarn needle
8 stitches = 3 inches.
Gauge is not critical to this pattern, but throw size may vary slightly.
Finished Throw measures 48″ wide x 60″ long.
Throw is worked back and forth in rows. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.
Loosely cast on 144 stitches.
Knit 4, purl 4; repeat to the end of the row.
Work all rows as above until throw is the desired length.
Bind off all stitches.
Weave in ends.
The throw size can be easily adjusted by casting on more or less stitches in multiples of 8 and/or knitting more or less rows.
I absolutely love my finished throw blanket! It feels so soft and cozy – perfect for snuggling up on the couch with my husband to watch television in the evenings as the weeks grow colder.
I hope you enjoyed my Hygge knitted throw pattern using Red Heart Hygge yarn as much as I enjoyed making it! If you have any questions or comments about the pattern, please don’t hesitate to leave them in the comments section below!
