Hygge Burst Pillow Pattern


(This listing is for those who wish to have an advertisement free pattern or printable copy).

Hygge (pronouced “Hue-guh”) is a Scandinavian word meaning everything that is cozy, happy, special, warm and nice. It’s used as a noun, a verb and an adjective! I fell in love with the idea of hygge after reading The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well by Meik Wiking. For me, this pillow encompasses all the warmth, coziness and happiness that you can get from a crochet pillow. I hope you all feel the same too.

This pattern is worked up using the classic sunburst granny square.

The pattern uses WeCrochet Wool of the Andes Tweed (worsted weight) yarn, a 5mm hook and an 18”x18” washable pillow.
Pattern includes all colours used and the yarn quantities as well as exact positioning. My gift to you is taking the work out of colourwork!

The final pillow size was: 18”x 18” square.

Pattern will include:

  • yarn amounts/quantities.
  • yarn colours.
  • stitch glossary.
  • printable pdf of pillow graph.
  • full colour chart of all squares and their positioning so you can make this EXACT colour copy!
  • full written instruction for the granny square used (classic sunburst granny square).
  • video tutorials for the sunburst granny square as well as the continuous join as you go method.
  • written and video tutorial for pillow cover assembly.

Happy Crocheting Everyone!
