Taurus Horoscope Sign
Use the leftover twisted cord from your Aries star sign to make your Taurus horoscope sign. You will need a total of three twisted cords [the length given below] to make the twelve free horoscope star signs [if you're working your squares the same size as mine]. If you're making your squares smaller, you will need to adjust the thickness of your twisted cords, and the number required - for squares half the size of mine, use half the amount of strands.
Materials: 1 100g ball 8 ply synthetic burgundy yarn, knitting needle, sewing needle, burgundy sewing thread, elastic threader or small safety pin.
Twisted Cord Yarn Lengths: 4 strands x 4.5 metres [180ins] long.
Print out the 12cm x 13cm [4.8ins x 5.2ins] Taurean pdf file, the 8cm x 8.5cm [3.2ins x 3.4ins] Taurean pdf, or the 3.5cm x 3.5cm [1.4ins x 1.4ins] Taurean pdf, depending on the size of your squares.
Carefully cut out the symbol. You will need to sticky tape the outer edge to mend the Taurus 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 through your crochet granny square between the stitches at the right tip of your Taurus horoscope sign. Pull through until the knot sits firmly against the back of your motif.
Position and pin the cord into place, inside the template, forming the first horn, and continuing along the top of the circular face section, around the facial section, crossing over and completing the second horn, as shown at right.
Thread your twisted cord from front to back between the stitches at the edge of the second horn.
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 the remaining cord for your next free horoscope sign [Gemini].
Remove template. Using your sewing needle and burgundy thread, carefully stitch your Taurus horoscope sign into place.
Once you've finished this step, continue completing your cream granny squares, dusty pink granny squares, and any remaining mixed motifs.
