The twelfth and last of the star sign designs
, is Pisces
, the symbol of the twin fish. The Pisces logo
depicts the twin fish tied together with a cord. Pisces
spans the period from 20th February to 20th March.
Now that the Aries horoscope symbol, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Aquarius sign designs are complete, it's time we created and attached the last of our zodiac symbol designs to our granny square motifs. The Pisces horoscope design is the last one.
If you've decided not to display zodiac sign designs, but to use monogrammed letters, Christmas motifs, or flowers instead, now is the time for you to be crocheting and attaching them to your crochet afghan squares.
Not decorating your cream motifs at all? This is the time for you to finish off all the crochet afghan squares you've created, so you will be ready to assemble your zodiac rug and add your chosen edging.
If the terminology used in this zodiac crochet afghan 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 crochet afghan and all of my free crochet patterns, using easy to follow instructions and photographs, showing step by step how to work all the crochet stitches you need.

Pisces Horoscope Sign
Use any leftover twisted cord from your Aquarius symbol to make your Pisces logo. You will need a total of three twisted cords [the length given] to make the twelve star sign designs [if you're working your crochet afghan 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 your choice from the Pisces logo templates - 10.5cm x 8.25cm [4.2ins x 3.3ins] Pisces logo pdf file, the 7.25cm x 5.75cm [2.9ins x 2.3ins] Pisces logo pdf, or the 4cm x 3.25cm [1.6ins x 1.3ins] Pisces logo pdf, depending on the size of your star symbol motifs.
Carefully cut out your Pisces logo template. You will need to sticky tape the outer edge to mend the logo template. Trim, position, and pin the template in the center of your cream square as you did with the Aries logo templates.
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 through your crochet granny square between the stitches at tip of the left vertical line of your horoscope sign designs. Pull through until the knot sits firmly against the back of your motif.
Position and pin the twisted cord into place, inside your horoscope template, forming the left vertical line.
Thread your twisted cord from front to back between the stitches at the lower tip of the left vertical line. Pin or tack in place.
Step 2: Thread your twisted cord from back to front, through your cream square, at the lower point of the right vertical line.
Position and pin the twisted cord into place, inside your horoscope template, forming the right vertical line. Thread your twisted cord through your cream square from front to back at the top point of the right vertical line.
Step 3: Thread your twisted cord from back to front at the right tip of the horizontal line.
Thread your twisted cord from front of cream square to back at left tip of horizontal line.
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.
If you have more crochet afghan squares to decorate, the patterns for the Sun and Moon are coming up.
Remove your design template. Using your sewing needle and burgundy thread, carefully stitch your Aquarius logo into place.
Once you've finished attaching your Aquarius water carrier symbol, continue crocheting any remaining mixed granny squares.
When all granny squares are complete, you may assemble your rug and finish it off with a decorative edging.
