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!
Worsted Weight yarn in 4 colors (I used Caron Simply Soft: A=Passion [This color has been discontinued by Caron. Instead use Red Heart Soft Yarn: Grape], B=Blue Mint, C=Bone, D=Pistachio)
Size H Hook
Using H hook and materials listed feather should be about 4” tall and 3” wide.
3-Picot: chain 3, sl st into 3rd ch from hook
Tr: Yarn over (twice), insert hook in stitch, yarn over, draw yarn through stitch, (yarn over, draw yarn through 2 loops on hook) 3 times.
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.
Attach COLOR C to same ch-sp (corner of colors A and B)
Round 3: 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.

Make a whole bunch and sew them together to make amazing gifts. Post links in the comments of things you've made, I want to see!
