About this pattern
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!
Photos show the bowl before and after felting.
Finished Measurements: The finished size will vary depending on how much it felts. My finished bowl measures 17½" (44.5 cm) circumference after felting.
Yarn: Choose a 100% animal fiber yarn that is NOT superwash. Superwash yarn will not felt. I used O-Wool's Local in the Steelhead color for the center and Green Mountain Spinnery's Mountain Mohair in the Spice color for the outer section.
Needles: I suggest using a needle size that will give a slightly tight gauge. I used a size US 5 (3.75 mm) set of 5 double pointed needles.
Gauge: Is not critical for this design. I didn't measure what I got on my bowl.
