Two Great Yarns are Better Together!
To create the Hygge Diamond Pillow, I used Red Heart Hygge Charm for the diamond side. It’s sparkly, easy to crochet with, and really makes those diamonds pop!
On the other side, I used Red Heart Hygge – so fuzzy and soft! This side contrasts beautifully with the “hard” diamonds, and gives you two looks in one!
Top it All Off with Poms!
Pom poms on the corners of pillows are all the rage right now – and it’s a great way to use up the leftover bits of yarn when you’ve finished crocheting the pillow! The Red Heart Hygge Charm works best for the poms, but they are of course completely optional. You can even use Faux Fur poms or tassels if you like!
Create Your Own Hygge Diamond Pillow!
The Hygge Diamond Pillow is easy to customize – from colors to corners! I went with white for a versatile look – this works for your winter wonderland, boho, and texture on texture looks. But feel free to mix it up and make it your own!
One last thing to note – I used a 20″ pillow form to stuff a 16″ cover. This creates a super puffy and firm pillow! For a softer pillow, go with an 18″ pillow form. You do always want to go a little over for fluffiness!

Helpful Links and Tutorials:
FSC – Foundation Single Crochet
CSDC – Chainless Starting Double Crochet
The Red Heart Hygge Charm is held doubled throughout the Diamond Side. The Red Heart Hygge is not doubled for the Solid Side. For more on yarn held doubled, click here.
This pattern uses the FSC which negates the need for a foundation chain. If preferred, chain 56, skip the ch closest to the hook, and sc in each rem ch for the first row of either side of the pattern.
Additionally, this pattern uses the CSDC, which takes the place of a turning chain or other dc substitute in the first st of some rows. If preferred, use a ch 3 and count that as the first dc of the row, or use your preferred dc dubstitute.
Fptr2tog – front post treble two together decrease: [yo twice and insert hook around indicated st from front of work, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through two loops twice] two times, yo and pull through all three loops on hook.

Could I please have this pattern posted if possible, I have no computers or home internet etc.
Hi Elaine! I’m afraid I don’t offer a mail service at this time. Perhaps your local library could help you print it out?
Hi, any chance I could use a bulky yarn for the diamond side instead of doubling the yarn? Or is there a specific reason to double aside from getting to use the same yarn for both sides with different effects?
It was just to get the same weight, so as long as you end up with the same weight/gauge for both sides you’re all set! 🙂
Sorry second question. Does the paid version contain a chart by any chance? Thanks!
No chart for this one I’m afraid, charting this stitch is a bit above my graphic design skill level.
I love this pillow and cannot wait to get mine finished. I have an issue with the Hygge side though. My gauge is slightly larger (13 sts x10 rows), but I am out of yarn and only 27 rows in. Should the pattern be written for the 8 oz. skein of Hygge? Has anyone else had this issue? Thank you.
Hm, I haven’t heard of this issue, but I’m wondering if you held it doubled too? Only the Charm size is held doubled.
I didn’t hold it double, but on further investigation, I realize my gauge is off enough that I need to reduce my stitch number to 50/row to reach 16″. I’m ripping out and trying that. Do you use pretty much the whole skein of hygge?
Yes, I did use pretty much the whole skein.
I love all your pattern but could you post a video of this pattern please.
