Free Patterns

Welcome to my collection of free patterns. In an effort to make many of my patterns more financially accessible, these are free to view online, with the option to purchase the PDF of the pattern at whatever cost works for you.

Or if you wish to balance the time, energy and experience these patterns used to be created, I invite you to consider leaving a small tip on Ko-fi, or become one of my Patreon supporters (who I lovingly call "my stitches") for $5/month to access a larger collection of my patterns.

More patterns are gradually being added. You're invited to join my newsletter to be notified of new free patterns via email.

I hope you see something you'd love to make!

Sigyn's Bowl - Free Pattern March 13, 2022 16:22

In the Norse myths, Sigyn (SIG-in) is the wife of Loki, who is bound to a stone where a snake will eternally drip venom onto him. Sigyn stands over him with a bowl, collecting the venom until it’s full, then empties it and does it again, and again, and again…

The loyalty, endurance and compassion she has is respectable and something I wish to cultivate more of in my own life. Even in the midst of being traumatized herself by witnessing what was done to her sons and husband, she is still compelled to help take away the suffering of others.

This pattern will make a small, shallow felted bowl. Gauge, yarn and needle size are not critical for this design. Choose what you like!
