Hygge CAL Video Tutorials – Week 1

Yes, the day has finally come! We can start working on the Scheepjes Hygge CAL designed by the lovely Kirsten from Haak Maar Raak.

Video tutorials

In week 1 of Hygge we are making multicolored bobbles on the stone washed background. I show you how to work the bobbles and, maybe a new thing for some of you, I also show you how to work with two colors at the same time. The videos are available in English and Dutch, with left and right handed versions in both languages. Please note that in the English video I use UK crochet terms.

I love the bobbles and the bright colors of the Rainbow kit. I used one of my squirrel stitch markers to make sure nothing happens to the working loop. Isn’t he just the cutest thing!

Yarn and kits for Hygge CAL

If you are only just joining in, there are 4 colorway kits to choose from. You can choose between the Rainbow, Jewel, Pastel and Danish Mermaid colorways. The kits contain 10 balls of Stone Washed yarn, 11 balls of Catona yarn and extra goodies to get you in the Hygge mindset. Goodies include a button, a charm, a stitch marker, a yarn needle and 2 wooden ice crystals. The kits are available from Wool Warehouse or your Scheepjes stockist.

Next week we start with the embroidery which I just love about this project. Hope to see you then.

With love,

  1. Thank you for the video tutorial this is really helpful as I am a beginner to crochet. I was surprised that Week 1 started with the bobbles because looking at the completed wrap there seems to be quite a number of rows worked prior to the bobbles and they appear to be in a slightly different pattern. Does his mean that the CAL does differ from he design shown on the promotional material?


  2. Loved your video, it’s wonderful to have clear visuals from a left handed perspective. I won’t be starting mine until next week, when I’m back in Canada but I’m confident I’ll catch up after reading the pattern and watching your video. Thank you again 🙂

  3. Wat mooi!Ik heb de mermaid kit erg leuk om te doen.Hoe groot is je werk na 1 week?Weet dat we bij de vorige cal steeds gingen meten Wil graag weten of ik een beetje op dezelfde afm kom
    Bedankt voor de duidelijke uitleg telkens


      1. Dankje en dan 15 hoog of kom ik dan veel te kort uit?
        Proeflapje lukte goed maar een gouden lus met die bobbels vind ik lastiger
        Bedankt voor je antwoord!en voor die handige filmpjes natuurlijk


  4. Goedemiddag Esther, ik wil graag beginnen met week 1.Ik heb gisteren 2 proeflapjes gemaakt. Een wat losser gehaakte met haaknaald 4 (los haken is wat ik automatisch doe) een met haaknaald 4,5 maar dan wat vaster gehaakt (dan moet ik opletten bij het haken).Qua formaat ontlopen de proeflapjes elkaar niet veel. Die met 4,5 gehaakt is wat kleiner. Via you tube filmpjes heb ik begrepen dat als je borduurt op haakwerk het beter wat vaster gehaakt kan worden. Klopt dit en hoe kan ik bepalen dat ik niet te vast haak, om te voorkomen dat ik straks een plank maak ipv een sjaal? Alvast bedankt voor een eventueel antwoord.


  5. Thank you for your adorable pattern. I finished for week 1, and I wonder week 1’s size. I knit week 1 after knit gauge, but I feel little small. So if you let me know size(week 1’s wide and high), I’ll really appreciate it. Thank you.


  6. Goedemiddag Esther,

    Zou je me iets uit willen/kunnen leggen. Stel ik wil op een breedte van 31 cm uitkomen hoe breed moet dan mijn losse ketting zijn. Bij mij is het zo dat als ik 60 losse haak, op 31 cm uitkom en vervolgens nog 2 toeren vaste haak mijn werk toch weer wat breder wordt. Ik Let op dat ik niet te los haak horen :). Is er een stelregel dat je lossen ketting altijd een 1 cm oid korter moet zijn?


    1. Nabrander na toer 7 dus 2 rijen bobbels zit ik op 32 cm. Terwijl de zijkanten recht boven elkaar zitten het loopt dus niet wijd uit.
      Groet Petra

    2. Nee, er is geen stelregel voor dit soort dingen omdat het afhangt van hoe je haakt. de verhouding is voor ieder persoon anders. je lapje zal idd iets breder worden dan je losseketting omdat steken als vasten en stokjes breder zijn dan losse.


  7. Good morning! My wool has arrived, so I shall be catching up over the weekend.
    I have a question which has bothered me for years and was wondering if anyone can answer it.
    Every pattern advises that you knit a tension/gauge square, but do they allow for the amount of wool you use when they tell you how many balls you need? I am guessing they do, but have never been sure!
    Many thanks,


  8. Hi Esther,

    I just received my Hygge kit yesterday and I am starting week 1. I watched part of the video for the first week and you are making single crochets – not double crochets – in the first 4 rows. I like the way your work looks with the sc and the colored bobbles are prominent in the piece. I tend to crochet loosely and I am concerned that I will run out of yarn. Thank you for the measurements of 35cm wide and 12 to 15cm tall for part one. My work is already wider than 35cm so I am starting over with a smaller hook. Is it possible to provide the measurements for each weeks work?



    1. Hello Angela,
      I am doing the correct stitch, please note that the video uses UK terms. You are most likely more familiar with US terms.
      For more details on size etc, please ask the designer or in the Facebook group hosting the CAL. All the links included en post above.


  9. Is there a written version of each week’s patter? I just got my kit and I am starting. I click on the pattern link for English but I just end up on Scheepes’ website general CAL info page.


  10. I just finished part one and my bobbles look better on the wrong side than they do on the right. I tried to push them through to the right side, as directed in the video, and they keep popping back to the wrong side. Any suggestions?
