Pattern Description:

I love the brilliant colours of peacock feathers and their amazing, almost hypnotic pattern. This blanket is an attempt to try and capture some of that mesmerizing beauty. Reversible and double-thick, it's also a great blanket to cozy up in or to use as a bedspread.

This project calls for 14 skeins of yarn for the peacock motif blanket, and another 5 skeins for the reverse-side blanket. I've chosen more inexpensive yarns to make it a more affordable project, and I can often find these yarns on sale at my local store or online. It also requires two different sizes of hooks - 5mm and 8mm. Additionally, you'll need a sewing needle.

Blanket size works up to be about 50 inches by 58 inches.

If you want to increase the stability of the peacock "feathers" after you've stitched the feathers together and added the reverse-side blanket, you can slip stitch crochet around the tops of the feathers from one end to the other (crocheting into the feathers below if desired).


  • 5mm hook
  • 8mm hook

Suggested yarn:

4500 yards of Worsted weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Deborah Norville & Red Heart Soft
