It’s December’s knitting horoscope! Find some great patterns, tools, and ideas for your knitting this month, according to your zodiac sign.

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)

In typical Sagittarius fashion, your curiosity is high and you are asking lots of questions this month. Your wanderlust-o-meter is at a 10 right now, too, so look ahead to 2018 and plan an adventure to somewhere new that will widen your horizons. Go on a knitting retreat or take a class in a new setting.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19)

Focus on the small steps right now, Capricorn, as the big picture can seem daunting. Get into your creative flow and focus on things at the micro level to help you tackle one thing at a time. Being around kids will be good for your spirit this month, so teach an interested kid to knit or put on a kid-friendly class and just have fun teaching some kiddos.

Aquarius (January 20–February 18)

If you have a list of holiday gift ideas that you want to make, stop dreaming about it and start doing it! Your hard work will pay off and your gift recipients will be delighted by your talent and selflessness.

Pisces (February 19–March 20)

You’ve got a lot of projects going on, and your creative juices are flowing. There might be some tensions pulling you in different directions, but stay focused on your own projects and you’ll get some quality work finished.

Aries (March 21–April 19)

Ask yourself some hard questions about your happiness this month, Aries. If some unfinished projects are nagging at you, conquer them and cross them off your to-do list. Don’t be afraid to get a little impulsive when it comes to finding yarn for holiday gifts.

Taurus (April 20–May 20)

Don’t let December throw you off of your routine, Taurus. Follow your intuition—it won’t steer you wrong. Don’t commit to any big financial risks at this time, and dig into that stash yarn for your year-end projects.

Gemini (May 21–June 20)

You may not be getting everything you want right now, but instead of becoming frustrating use your resources to make the best of your situation. You may end up with a better product in the long run that way. Thinking deeply about your situation will lead you to some great ideas.

Cancer (June 21–July 22)

It’s a time for new beginnings for Cancer. There may be a career change ahead, a big move, or a shift in a relationship status. Whatever is changing, trust that it’s on the right track, and make sure to knit for at least a few minutes each day to deal with the stress.

Quick + Easy Knits is chock-full of projects that will keep you calm.

Leo (July 23–August 22)

You might be extra sensitive right now, Leo, so take a little bit of time to tune into why, and then let whatever is affecting you go. Take some time to nurture yourself, work on a project that is just for you, and you’ll be feeling more adjusted soon.

Virgo (August 23–September 22)

You’re going to have a creative surge in the middle of the month, so get the mundane stuff done at the beginning so your bandwidth will allow that creativity to come in. Folks around you may be frazzled because of the holidays, but remember that your calm and collected nature can rub off on those people.

Libra (September 23–October 22)

Your flexibility will be in play this month, Libra. Things may not be going how you planned them to, but it’s okay to scrap your plans and go with the flow now. Think about what you knitted in 2017 and what you want to knit in 2018. Make that resolutions list before the month is over!

Scorpio (October 23–November 21)

You might be looking around at some other possibilities for your life that you hadn’t considered before. Don’t limit yourself to what you know, but let yourself explore other options, whether it be a career or a big move. If you’ve been wanting to learn a tough technique, now’s the time!
