Perthro, the dice cup.
This rune symbolizes the dices, or more broadly – destiny, something that awaits you. Dices were used for fortune-telling (as well as today) It has an amount of uncertainty, because you never know how lucky the draw will be.
Perthro is very controversial and is sometimes interpreted as a woman’s womb, that also holds a lot of mystery in itself. It is said to enhance psychic abilities and sexuality.
Anyway, if you came across that rune by accident – expect more mysteries happening 🙂
Stitch count (Perthro pattern is bigger than the other runic charts because the name of the rune is longer): 40 x 49 stitches, 7 colors

Perthro is a good gift for someone who needs to clarify future path, or as a good luck charm.
I gave this tune a plant that is the luckiest ever. And though usually I choose trees for my runes, today it seemed best to draw a shamrock. What else could it be?
