Please note, that this pattern is a little bit (two stitches) wider than most of the runic patterns of the same design. I had to make it like this because the rune’s neame is longer 🙂

The symbolic tree for Berkana on the pattern is pomegranate.

Rune Wunjo cross stitch pattern

While most of the sources I check to know the meaning of runes rarely agree with each other (it is very funny how websites in English and websites in Russian write very differently about the same runes), all of these sources agree that Wunjo is the rune of happiness and joy. So I hope you will find joy in stitching it!

Raidho rune free cross stitch pattern

Last rune made a great milestone: half of all Elder Futark runes were completed into cross stitch patterns. So, for now. you can find patterns Fehu, Thurisaz, Kenaz, Gebo, Hagalaz, Nauthiz, Isa, Perthro, Algiz, Tiwaz, Laguz and Othala. And today I’m starting the second half, and I make a pinky promise to you to complete the whole series before this autumn. It is going to be a great quest! And, speaking of quests, today’s pick is

Raidho rune free cross stitch pattern

Raidho is one of the runes that all readers agree on: it’s primary meaning is the journey, and that may mean both physical travels (that makes Raidho a traveller’s good luck charm) and metaphorical quests of our lives. It is an evolution in motion, a rule to move if we want to change and become a better person. It is also a talisman that helps to see your path clearly and not get distracted by obstacles.

Today’s freebie will be another pattern in the runic series. Many thanks to Maria for stimulating me to return to that (unfinished) work through comments 🙂

This time the runes chose to show me Algiz – quite a mystic rune, because, as far as Wikipedia goes, people are nor sure of its name or true meaning, But we will settle for common name of Algiz, that stands for Elk.

Rune Laguz (water, intuition) cross stitch chart

The primary meaning of Laguz is water. Water was very controversial for the Vikings being very dangerous yet giving life (irrigation and fish). That is why Laguz often means life, birth and new beginnings.

Stitch count: 39 x 46 stitches, 9 colors

Deeper meaning of Laguz is the Flow, artistic inspiration, intuition and unconscious wisdom. This rune with its ability of multiplying creation powers can make a good present for any creative person. But you should be very careful with Laguz (as well as with any other rune), because it also means dark and hidden sides of your subconsciousness. Don’t get carried away with your imagination!

Laguz is also said to be a very feminine rune. It gives the woman a strength to get through any obstacles in life.

If you got to this page while randomly browsing the Web, than maybe Laguz is trying to tell you that you should relax and go with the flow of your life.

I chose a weeping willow as a symbolic tree for this pattern, because it grows only near water and is often associated with a woman.
