Red Heart has brought us a beautiful NEW yarn, Hygge. This is the perfect yarn for getting cozy through the winter or any time. In this video tutorial I will show you how to work up the Braided Cable Knit Throw, a FREE pattern from Red Heart. Working cables can look intimidating but in this video I give you tips and tricks to be successful. Download your FREE pattern and let’s get started.
Fall in love with this most wonderful, soft yarn with a short furry texture. Not only will you love knitting with this bulky weight yarn, you will enjoy wrapping yourself in luxurious softness for years to come.
For this pattern you will be using circular needles. This is suggested to accommodate the number of stitches required for the blanket. If you use straight needles it will get heavy and you might not have enough room on the needle for all of the stitches needed.
This is a very Pottery Barn -esque throw and will be a family favorite. Learn to knit garter, stockinette, and a braided cable (3/3 LC, 3/3 RC) while working this pattern.
About Hygge Yarn:
The Danish concept of coziness, comfort and warm relationships. Hygge evokes feelings of well-being and contentment. When you think of Hygge you can picture sitting by the fire curled up with a great project and a copy of your favorite hot beverage. The slipper socks that we made during the 2018 KAL were very much from the Hygge movement.
Hygge is an extremely cozy, soft size 5 bulky weight acrylic yarn that is twisted with a short fur end. The result is a lovely textured effect that is wonderful to work with, and is perfect for fashion, accessories and home. Once you feel this new yarn you will want to wrap it around you and never leave your cozy blanket.
With 20 different colors in the Hygge yarn line you will be able to find something that fits your home. Don’t forget to also check out the new Hygge Charm yarn, which is a medium weight with a thread of sparkle through it.
