A delicate version of my Anglo Saxon shawl pin, this time the shape is modified to represent a serpent with winding tail. Its great for lighter weight knits (dk or lighter), would also work well with hand woven pieces. Inspired by the Jörmungandr or World Serpent in Norse mythology. One of Lokis children by the giantess Angrboda, he surrounds Midgard-- our world. Circular part of the pin measures 1 1/4 or 3.5 cm wide and 1 3/4 or 4.5cm long (tail included).
