Few things say "hygge" more than a cozy, hand-knit blanket to embrace and bring comfort to the wearer. In fact, blankets are must-have's in any hygge household. Knitting is extremely hygge too! It brings calmness to the knitter and surroundings. Knitting this very thick blanket brought great comfort and warmth to me. It is knit with three strands and 18 skeins of chunky yarn and weighs almost 5 lbs. No doubt, this will beome a family favorite!
