Then was the body of Baldr borne out on shipboard…and the fire was kindled. Odin laid on the pyre that gold ring which is called Draupnir; this quality attended it, that every ninth night there dropped from it eight gold rings of equal weight.

Gylfaginning, trans. Arthur Gilchrist Brodeur


Draupnir is a small stashbuster project. These wristlets work up surprisingly quickly; despite their complex appearance, the combination of cables and lace is actually quite easy to memorize.

The pattern is charted only.

The lace is quite stretchy. As written, the wristlets will fit a woman’s small to medium. Instructions are also given to make the wristlets wider.
