Depictions of the norse god Odin often show him accompanied by two ravens, named Huginn ("thought") and Muninn ("memory"). Every day, the two birds fly out over the world, and at evening, they return with news of the day's events. This pattern includes not only the two ravens, but also runes, which read: "The Lord Odin is within you; May his blessings be with you."
The Odin's Ravens Cross Stitch Pattern measures 193 stitches wide by 180 stitches high. The cross stitch pattern spans 14 pages, and is printed single-sided, on unbound sheets in a clear plastic bag for protection. There is a color picture of the completed chart on the front page. The pattern itself is graphed in black and white symbols, and a table showing the DMC colors you'll need is included.
This is a pattern for counted cross stitch. It is not a complete kit. You will need to supply your own fabric and floss. We are not able to offer digital downloads of our patterns at this time.
How much fabric do I need?
To calculate the amount of fabric you will need for your project, divide the number of stitches by the stitch count of the fabric you wish to use. The higher the count of your fabric, the smaller your piece will be. Some examples appear below. Remember to leave several additional inches as a border on each side, to facilitate framing your project when it is finished.
