I am officially obsessed with Red Heart’s Hygge yarn!! First I made the Hygge Shawl, then on to my new favorite mitten pattern, the Hygge Mittens, and now I’ve made a hat with Hygge!! I really love this mini bean stitch and it worked so well with this yarn. This is seriously one of the softest, squishiest yarns I’ve ever felt and I really love it. If you haven’t tried it yet – what are you waiting for?!
The next Hygge project I think you will see on this blog will either be a sweater or a dress for me. I’ve made all four of my boys sweaters (finishing up the last one!) and so now there will be time for me to do some selfish making. I do still want to make my hubby a sweater but he isn’t really that much of a sweater guy so I’m not in a rush to make him one. There really isn’t anything knit or crocheted that he likes to wear, much to my dismay. Good thing I have four kiddos to make for (and myself, and friends, and friends kid’s…. the list goes on 😉
