Hygge - A FREE Printable Poster!

This year's Crochet-a-Long (CAL) from Scheepjes is called Hygge. If, like me, you've never heard of this word before let alone how to pronounce it, then read on...it's actually a really lovely concept. 

First, how to pronounce it? Well, that's pretty easy - it's pronounced "hoo-ga". Got it? Good. It's a fun word to say. Say it a few times. "Hoo-ga", "Hoo-ga" "Hoooooo-ga". Ok, moving on... 

So, what on earth does this fun-sounding word mean? That, I think, is a little more complicated to explain. It's more of a feeling or a concept than a word. It is a Danish word, and it basically means "cosiness". It is the ritual of enjoying life's simple pleasures and making the ordinary more meaningful, beautiful and special. Isn't that lovely! We need more of that in today's world!

The designer of the Hygge CAL is Kirsten Ballering from the blog Haak Maar Raak. The design is Scandinavian themed and combines my two crafty loves - crochet and cross-stitch. So of course I am going to be participating! 



The biggest dilemma I'm having is which colour way to choose. Kirsten, together with Scheepjes, have come up with 3 colour options which can be purchased as part of a kit. The colours are Rainbow, Jewel and Pastel. Another Scheepjes Blogger, Simy, added her own colour option too, which has received a lot of love, called the Danish Mermaid. 

The CAL officially starts on Wednesday the 15th of February and will run for 14 weeks. So, while we all wait until then and in the spirit of Hygge I have designed a FREE printable poster to help set the scene and get you in the hygge mood.



As there are 4 colour options for the CAL kits, I thought there should also be 4 matching posters! Choose your favourite, print it out and get cosy.

And since Scheepjes has just introduced one more colour option - the "Girls Night In" kit - of course I had to do a matching Hygge poster for it too! So, if you are one of the lucky few who are getting this last limited edition kit and would like a matching poster, then click below to download your free poster:
