Capricorn Design

Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac. The Capricorn symbol is the seagoat. The design comprises two symbols in one. The left half being the horns of the goat, and the right half being the tail of the fish. Capricorn influences the period from 22nd December to 20th January.

Having completed the Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius designs, it's time for crocheting and attaching the rest of your zodiac signs to your granny square motifs. The Capricorn horoscope design is next.

If you've decided not to display zodiac signs, but to use monogrammed letters, Christmas motifs, or flowers instead, now is the time for you to be crocheting and attaching them to your granny square motifs.

This is the time for you to finish crocheting all of the granny squares, if you're not decorating your cream motifs at all. Once this is done, you will be ready to assemble your rug and finish it off with a decorative edging.

If the terminology used in this zodiac bedspread design differs from what you're used to, check my equivalency tables for easy conversion.

If you are a beginner and need help to learn to crochet, my "CROCHET MADE EASY" e-book, will teach you to create your own bedspread and all of my free projects, using easy to follow instructions and photographs, showing step by step how to work all the crochet stitches you need. More information on my e-book contents page.

Capricorn Horoscope Sign

Use any leftover twisted cord from your Sagittarius sign to make your Capricorn horoscope sign. You will need a total of three twisted cords [the length given below] to make the twelve horoscope star signs [if you're working your crochet bedspread motifs the same size as mine]. If you're making your squares smaller, you may need to adjust the thickness of your twisted cord, and the number required - If your motifs are half the size of mine, use half the amount of yarn.

Materials: 1 100g ball 8 ply synthetic burgundy yarn, knitting needle, sewing needle, burgundy sewing thread, elastic threader or small safety pin.

Twisted Cord Lengths: 4 strands x 4.5 metres [180ins] long.

Print out the 12.5cm x 12cm [5ins x 4.8ins] create pdf file, the 7.25cm x 7.5cm [2.9ins x 3ins] create pdf, or the 4.25cm x 4.5cm [1.7ins x 1.8ins] create pdf, depending on the size of your bedspreads motifs.

Carefully cut out the Capricorn horoscope sign. You will need to sticky tape the outer edge to mend the Capricorn design template. Trim, position, and pin the template in the center of your cream square as you did with the Aries template.

Attach elastic threader or small safety pin to one end of your twisted cord.

Step 1: Working from the back of your cream square, thread your twisted cord from back to front, between the stitches at the lower right tip of the fish's tail. Position the twisted cord into place, inside your Capricorn horoscope template, forming the tail and circular portion of the fish, and continuing upwards to form the vertical line and the right goat's horn. Thread your twisted cord from front to back at the point where the right goat's horn meets the stem of the left goat's horn.

Pin or tack into place.

Step 2: Thread your twisted cord from back to front, through your cream square, start of the top left tip of the horns. Thread the twisted cord from front to back at the bottom of the horns section.

Knot your twisted cord firmly, so that the knot sits snugly against the back of your cream square. Make another knot approximately 2cm [.75ins] from the previous knot. Cut between knots.

Use any remaining cord to form the next horoscope sign [Aquarius].

Remove your design template. Using your sewing needle and burgundy thread, carefully stitch your Capricorn horoscope motif into place.

Once you've finished attaching your Capricorn horoscope design, continue crocheting your cream granny squares, dusty pink granny squares, and any remaining mixed granny squares.
