The Sagittarius sign template
depicts the bow and arrow of the archer. Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac
spanning the period from 22nd November to 21st December.
Having completed the Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio symbols, it's time for crocheting and attaching the rest of your zodiac signs to your granny square motifs. The Sagittarius sign template is next.
Using monogrammed letters, Christmas motifs, or flowers instead of displaying zodiac signs? Now is the time for you to be crocheting and attaching them to your granny square motifs.
Not decorating your cream motifs at all? This is the time for you to finish crocheting all of the granny squares, so you will be ready to assemble your crochet bedspread motifs and add your chosen edging.
If the terminology used in this zodiac bedspreads instructions 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 stitches, my "CROCHET MADE EASY" e-book, will teach you to crochet bedspread patterns 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.
Use any leftover twisted cord from your Scorpio horoscope sign to make your Sagittarius 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 10.5cm x 10.5cm [4.2ins x 4.2ins] Sagittarius pdf file, the 7cm x 7cm [2.8ins x 2.8ins] Sagittarius pdf, or the 4.5cm x 4.5cm [1.8ins x 1.8ins] Sagittarius pdf, depending on the size of your bedspreads motifs.
Carefully cut out the Sagittarius sign. You will need to sticky tape the outer edge to mend the Sagittarius template. Trim, position, and pin the template in the center of your cream square as you did with the Aries template.
Now follow the step by step instructions below.
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 left tip of the Sagittarius symbol. Pull through until the knot sits firmly against the back of your motif. Position and pin the twisted cord into place, inside your Sagittarius template, forming the length of the archer's arrow. Thread your twisted cord from front to back, through your cream square, at the tip of the arrow. Pin or tack in place.
Step 2: Thread your twisted cord from back to front, through your cream square, at the right tip of the arrow. Position the twisted cord into place, inside your Sagittarius template. Thread your twisted cord from front to back between the stitches at the point of the arrow as in Step 1.
Step 3: Thread your twisted cord from back to front between the stitches at the end of the left tip of the arrow. Thread the twisted cord from front to back at the tip of the arrow as in Step 1.
Step 4: Thread your twisted cord from back to front at the lower left tip of the archer's bow. Position the twisted cord into place, inside your Scorpio template. Thread your, twisted cord from front to back of your motifs at the right tip of the archer's bow.
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 [Capricorn].
Remove your template. Using your sewing needle and burgundy thread, carefully stitch your Scorpio horoscope motifs into place.
Once you've finished attaching your Sagittaruis sign, continue crocheting your cream granny squares, dusty pink granny squares, and any remaining mixed granny squares.
When all granny squares are complete, you may assemble your rug and finish it off with a decorative edging.
