FREE Peacock Feather Pattern - It's Finally Here!

 
 
 You've seen them on Pinterest and tried to Google the pattern, but there was none.  So I sat down the other day and figured out the pattern for crochet  peacock feathers.  I'm so excited to be able to share it with the world.


This can be made with any yarn and hook but for this example I used worsted weight yarn (4) and an F hook.  You need purple, turquoise and lime green.  This pattern uses American terms.
Ch = chain
Sc = single crochet
Hdc = Half double crochet
Dc = double crochet
St = stitch

Round one is an offset center: With purple yarn,  Ch5; join with a slip stitch in first ch to form a ring.

Round 1:  Ch 1, (2 Sc, 2 Hdc, 5 Dc, 2 Hdc, 2 Sc) in ring; join with a slip stitch in first sc. (13 stitches)
                 Fasten off.  Mark first stitch and 3rd DC.




Round 2:  Join turquoise yarn in first (marked) stitch, Ch 1, Sc in same stitch, Ch 1, Sc in next st,        Ch1,  (Hdc, Ch 1) in next 3 stitches, Dc in next st, ch 1, (Dc, ch1, Dc,ch1) in next stitch( this should be your marked stitch), Dc in next st, Ch 1, (Hdc, Ch1) in next 3 stitches, (sc, ch1) in last two sts, join with a slip stitch in first stitch.  Fasten off turquoise.




Round 3:  Join lime green in first stitch, ch 1,  sc in each stitch and ch 1until you get to the tip that has two Dc in it.  Between those two Dc work ( Sc, Hdc, Dc, Hdc, Sc) then continue on around working sc in each stitch and ch 1 space until the end, join with a slip stitch to the first stitch.  Fasten off. 



And there you have it!  A beautiful peacock feather.
