Magickal Symbols Throw
Throw with Pagan symbols
Each motif is available as a single pattern; see below for links and prices.
This is a series of magical/pagan or alternative cultural symbols available as single motifs, which can be used on their own with a single pattern to make a whole throw. Buy one single motif and repeat it, or buy a few symbols of your choice. I used all 25 symbols for one throw but some of these could look fab if repeated in different shades or in groups with a specialised theme (e.g. Egyptian, Mayan etc). There is no need to buy all 25 squares to get instructions on knitting a border, backing squares or making a whole throw as instructions are in each individual pattern.
The single block pattern includes
Written pattern for a motif square and for a plain square as a backing, which can be used as a dishcloth, potholder,or stuffed as a herb pillow. Note that although some photos show the symbol only, the pattern actually has a Seed stitch border to prevent curling and make it easy to join.
Two complete charts available; one is full colour for texture and actual colour of the motif, the other is in light greyscale for easy print and following. The chart is for the whole square so no maths needed to work out how to centre it.
Includes a complete throw schematic for using this block on its own, repeated to make a complete throw.

Please note, that this is the lowest price we can offer a pattern to knitters wishing to use these in their personal projects. These patterns and charts are not available for commercial use unless the user has obtained permission in writing from Erssie Knits. If there is continued use of free or low price charts used in a commercial way then we will have no option but to review our current catalogue of charts and patterns and build in a price in advance to cover commercial use. This would be sad for those knitters who only want to knit personal items and cannot afford to buy patterns set above a certain rate.
