The Cozy Hygge Blanket Wrap is a fast and easy crochet pattern that you are going to love making and love wearing even more! This isn’t your traditional triangle shawl, so you can also call it a blanket scarf. Either way you’re going to want to wrap yourself up in this cozy rectangular blanket shawl the moment you’re finished making it. This modern design only uses one simple stitch because we’re letting the yarn do all of the work for us (more on that later!). Let’s get to it, shall we?
This pattern for the Cozy Hygge Blanket Wrap has been featured in the Design Create Repeat Blog Hop along with many other great free patterns! Head over to the Desert Blossom Crafts blog to see all 30 patterns included in this blog hop.
A few weeks ago I was browsing Amazon, looking for some more yarn to try (because I have an addiction, obviously) and I came across this Red Heart Hygge Yarn. It looked extra soft, but when you’re looking at yarn online you’re never really sure if it’ll actually be soft in person. So I ordered one skein just to test it out.
Oh. my. gosh!
This yarn is for real the softest yarn I’ve ever felt.
My original idea was to turn it into a longer scarf with sleeves, but I started thinking about how amazing this yarn would be as a blanket.
That’s when I had the idea to turn it into a blanket scarf and as I was almost done with my original idea, after using 5 skeins of pure fluffiness, I decided I didn’t like the length… and so it was frogged.
Yes… frogged. It turned into this very giant ball, but I was more excited about my new idea so it didn’t crush me as much as you would think.
Why is it called the Cozy Hygge Blanket Wrap?
Honestly, I am horrible at naming my patterns. I usually name them after the name of the stitch I used or the yarn… I know, how original!
Obviously I did the same with this design, because the name of the yarn is Hygge. However, I did some research on the meaning behind the word hygge and this Cozy Hygge Blanket Wrap fits the description perfection.
You see, hygge is a feeling of coziness, happiness, or just any special moment. After I wrapped myself in this blanket, I literally imagined myself sitting next to a fire with a hot cup of coffee, watching my boys roast marshmallows.
Is that a little dramatic? Yes, definitely. But it is that cozy and it is hygge all the way.
Oh and by the way, on the yarn label it says hygge is pronounced ‘hoo-gah’. When I was doing further research, I saw it was actually pronounced ‘hue-guh’. So it’s very similar, but I’m going to let you decide how you want to say it.
Let’s be honest, I still call it ‘hig’.
Behind the Yarn
So let’s talk about this yarn again. For the Cozy Hygge Blanket Wrap, I used Red Heart Hygge yarn (the softest, most beautiful yarn in the world), but if you look it up you’ll find a few different kinds.
- Red Heart Hygge (5oz.) – <<< that’s what I used for the pattern!
- Red Heart Hygge (8oz.)
- Red Heart Hygge Fur
- Red Heart Hygge Charm
The 5oz. and 8oz. are the same yarn, but one is bigger than the other. I did the math and it’s still cheaper to purchase 7 balls of the 5oz. skein versus 5 balls of the larger skein ($8 cheaper to be exact).
By the way, I would absolutely buy this yarn on Amazon and nowhere else!
For some reason Red Heart Hygge (5oz.) is only $4.68 on Amazon while it is $5.99 on the Yarnspirations website and $10.99 at Joann Fabrics.
It makes no sense.
Behind the Techniques
The Cozy Hygge Blanket Wrap is made entirely of half double crochet stitches. Not only do I pride myself in creating simple patterns that anyone can follow, but I also didn’t want to choose a stitch that was more complicated when the yarn (not the stitch) will be the main focus of the pattern.
If you haven’t already noticed, this yarn of more of a novelty yarn than a typical strand. It’s fluffy, but easy to work with. So I wanted to make the design simple, but I also wanted to create some dimension to it.
To do that, I worked through the third loop in some rows. If you have no clue what the third loop is, don’t worry, I got your back! Just pay attention to the photos in the tutorial below.

Using your leftover yarn, cut 92 strands of yarn approximately 18 inches long. Attach your yarn along the side of your blanket wrap (one strand per row) using a crochet hook.
Insert your hook into the space before the last hdc of the row. Fold your strand of yarn in half and pull it through the space. Yarn over your hook and pull the strand all the way through.
Repeat 91 more times! (I promise it goes quicker than it sounds!)
This Cozy Hygge Blanket Wrap is probably one of my favorite patterns to date. It is easy to make, beyond cozy, and a perfect gift for yourself for a friend or family member. Because we’re using an 8mm hook and a bulky weight yarn, this blanket shawl works up really quickly and works great as a last minute gift too! A couple of movies later and you’ll have yourself a blanket scarf!
