Peacock Feather Applique - Free Pattern

I love the colors in the peacock feather. I have had this idea to come up with a peacock feather pattern for a LONG time... at least 6 months. After our move and things finally settling down, I was able to sit down and come up with the pattern. I had to make MANY different versions before I was satisfied with the accuracy and neatness of the pattern. I hope you LOVE it!




Materials:
Worsted Weight yarn in 4 colors (I used Caron Simply Soft: A=Passion, B=Blue Mint, C=Bone, D=Pistachio)
Size H Hook
Yarn Needle
Scissors

Gauge:
Using H hook and materials listed feather should be about 4” tall and 3” wide.

Special Stitches:
3-Picot
Tr

Pattern:
Round 1: WITH COLOR A: In magic loop, ch 3(counts as dc) and dc 8 (9 dc total), CHANGE TO COLOR B and dc 3 more times in magic loop. Pull tail tight to close loop.
Round 2: Continuing with COLOR B, immediately sc in top of ch 3 of color A. Then 2 sc in next ch, 1 sc in next, 2 sc in next, 3 hdc in next, 2 sc in next, 1 sc in next, 2 sc in next, 1 sc in next, sl st to join and fasten off.
Round 3: Attach COLOR C to same ch-sp (corner of colors A and B), ch 1 and sc in same st, sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next, sc in next, hdc in next 2 sts, 2 hdc in next, dc in next, 2 dc in next, 2 tr in next 2 sts, 2 dc in next, dc in next, 2 hdc in next, hdc in next 2 sts, sc in next, sc in same ch as first sc, sl st to join and fasten off.
Round 4: Attach COLOR D to same ch-sp, ch 1 and sc in same st, sc in next 2, 2 sc in next, sc in next 2, 2 sc in next, hdc in next 6 sts, 2 hdc in next, 2 dc in next, 3-picot, 2 dc in next, 2 hdc in next, hdc in next 6 sts, 2 sc in next, sc in next 2, then sc in the first ch of the row, sl st to join. Fasten off.
