Pisces: February 19 – March 20

Welcome back to the 12 signs of the Zodiac (in crochet!)
So, this is my second month in my challenge, and this month I made Pisces!

Pisces is usually represented by two fish, however, because of life, I only had time to make one of them. (I tend to do things very last minute.)

I decided to represent Pisces by a koi fish. I used.. I believe Red Heart Super Saver yarn for this project. I chose a red, an orange, and a white yarn for my fish.

When I crochet in multiple colors like this, I tend to leave them attached instead of snipping all those ends. Then when I get down where I’ve stopped the patterning, I snip them and tie them together. If this was going to be a hat or something, I would have been snipping and hiding ends. In this case, since everything will be hidden inside the piece, knots and leaving them hanging a little is fine. (I am lazy when it comes to hiding ends.)

I used three colors: A red, an orange and a white. In the body section, r is red, w is white, and o is for orange.
1. Magic ring with 6 sc.
2. inc, sc. Repeat around – 9
3. inc, 2 sc. repeat around – 12
4. inc, 3 sc. repeat around – 15
5. inc, 2 sc. repeat around – 20
6. inc, 3 sc. repeat around – 25
7. inc, 4 sc. repeat around – 30
8-9. sc around
10. 4sc in white, 4sc in red. 23sc white
11. 3w, 4 red, 5 white, 3 orange, 14w
12. 1white, 8 red, 3white, 6orange, 12 w
13. 3w, 7r, 1w, 9 o, 10w
14. 5w, 7r, 5o, 13w
15. 7w,3r, 8o, 12w
16. 4w,4r,6o, 16w
17. 3w, 9r, 2o, 10w, dec, 4w – 29
18. 5w, 7r, 4o, 3w, dec, 5w, dec, 1w – 27
19. 7w, 4r, 7o, 3w, dec, 4w – 26
20. 4w, 7r, 5o, 7w, dec, 1w – 25
21. 2w, 6r, dec, 2r, 3o, 10w – 24
22. 8w, 2r, 6o, 8w – 24
23. 7w, 9o, 3w, dec, 3w (you can snip the red yarn at this point, as the red coloring is done with) – 23
24. 4w, 8o, dec, 2o, 7w. – 22
25. 2w, 5o, dec. 2o, 11w – 21
26. 6w, 3o, 7w, dec, 3w. -20
27. 10w, dec, 8 w (you can snip the orange now.) – 19
28. 5, dec, 12, (turn inside out here and start snipping/tying) – 18.
the reason I snip and tie off all those ends is because I feel like it pulls otherwise. You can probably get away without doing this. Or however you do your normal color patterning would work
29. dec, 7sc, repeat – 16
30. 3sc, dec, 5sc, dec, 4sc – 14
31. 1sc,dec, 5sc, dec,4sc – 12
32. 4sc, dec, 4sc,dec – 10
33. dec, 3sc, dec, 3sc – 8
34. dec, 2sc, dec, 2sc – 6
35. dec, sc, dec, sc – 4

And there you have Pisces! The only other thing I added, was the small tag that I made a month ago. For Pisces, I attached it like it was holding it in the mouth.

Lastly, in case you missed it:

    • Thanks! Yeah, I need to be a little more organized when I hit Gemini. XD I’ve already been thinking that with Gemini. ^_~
      I agree, I don’t really believe in the zodiac, but I do find it super fascinating. I love your tribute!!! They were so cute and made me giggle!
