The Shrivasta is a symbol originating from Buddhism.
It is one of the eight signs of luck, known as Ashtamangala.
They are the attributes of Ashtamangala devi the goddess of luck.
Shrivasta means endless knot.
It stands for a long life end never ending love.
To get another effect I have twisted the center of this knot a bit.
Let’s hope its meaning stays intact.
In this pattern there are also only four colours used, so you can easily adept it to your own taste.
After this one I embroidered the last one whit a bit more tiny holes, so that whole pattern is a bit smaller.
Look at Shrivasta A and Shrivasta C
