This Hygge Happy Crochet Throw Pattern (pronounced "hoo-gah") will bring some much needed cozy contentedness to your life, both as you hook it and while enjoying the finished product. There's no one English word to describe this Danish state of being present and joyful in the moment, but of course there's rarely one word to describe the cozy, happy, comfortable, charming feeling of snuggling up next to a loved one under a cozy crochet blanket. Spread the hygge when you spread this pure merino Red Heart crochet blanket over your family!

Very unassuming throw pattern but the pattern says its really complicated. This will also look great in vibrant or earth colors.

My first thought is Wow! I haven't used the RED HEART Chic Sheep yarn before, but need to find it. This throw uses 17 balls of the yarn but makes a nice size blanket. I sure hope I have a good coupon when I find the yarn. The written pattern is well done and easy to understand and the chart helps too. You can print the pattern out with the print tab, which is what I have done. Looking forward to making this one. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet throw pattern.

Aw, the idea behind the name of this blanket is so lovely. Who wouldn't want to be wrapped in contentment!? I might hook it in a different color though... maybe a deep blue or violet color. Thoughts?

This Hygee Happy Crochet Throw truly looks like it belongs in a pricey boutique because it looks like a million bucks. It uses just double crochets and skips ALONG with the front post double crochets. If you don't know how to do this one, I recommend watching a YouTube video tutorial instead of trying to read instructions.

This is seriously beautiful. I love the Hygge ideals.
