Kristy Glass is all about how to knit the hygge look! She reached out about a particular project she had in mind, and here’s the sweet video she posted:
She’d worked up the fabulous cowl you see her wearing, and felt maybe it had gone too quickly. She was looking for a project to spend the evening with – and then the Big Bold Pillow caught her eye. The project calls for our Wow! Yarn, and the Big Stix circular needles, and you can whip it up in one sitting. Below, you’ll see the pillow pictured in Non-Dairy Creamer (white), but you could cast it on in whatever color suits your space.
You’ll need your own pillow form, and one smart commenter suggested matching the pillowcase to the yarn you plan to use. Our Wow! comes in a generous handful of very fun colors, and you’ll be happy to invested in the Big Stix for any jumbo knitting projects. Kristy Glass offers this tender idea: if working up this project for a friend or loved one, try holding them in your heart while you’re crafting. It’s like a one-hour meditation, sending good vibes their way!
If a blanket is better-suited to your space, we’d love to introduce you to the Calais Afghan.
This beautiful knit hardly looks like a beginner project, the result is so stunning! Just look at that beautiful edging. It’s not only a beautiful piece that will add a focal point to any room, think of the lovely moments you’ll spend cozied up underneath!
The Calais Afghan works up in 8 balls of our LB Collection Wool – a super bulky, 100% wool that we adore. You’ll also want to pick up a pair of Lion Brand Super Circs – our circular knitting needles made specially for enormous projects. They’re Size 50 (25mm), and measure 45″, and are surprisingly light-weight. Even your biggest WIPs will become portable on these handy circs!
We’ll be choosing one comment at random to receive some special hygge treats. The lucky winner will receive ‘The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living’ and our Big Bold Pillow Kit! Good luck!
We so hope you’ve enjoyed these very hygge suggestions, and the special video from Kristy Glass Knits. We’ll be taking a page from her book, and the next time we knit for a loved one, we’ll make a point of having them in mind while crafting. Let us know if you’ve crafted anything particularly hygge lately, or if you’re inspired by one of the projects above!
