Rune Fehu (Cattle) – prosperity (cross stitch pattern)

The second rune in runic cross stitch patterns series is Fehu, or the Cattle, the symbol of wealth and prosperity. This rune is the first Futhark rune and also its last one. In a wider sense Fehu can also mean emotional gain or a better reputation.

Fehu can protect your valuable things and feelings, grant wealth and fulfill you wishes, but you have to be responsible and be ready to pay the price of your dreams (the mystical Price is the second meaning of Fehu). In the pattern for the rune I made apple leaves and fruits in the upper corners as a farther symbol of prosperity.

Here is the example of how the embroidery will look in real life. Please note, that the colors in the original design are different (I lazily made it with the thread remains I had at hand. For one, the apple flower is too light here.)

This chart will not only make a good present, but is also quite easy to cross stich even for a beginner.
