Hi,April!I just love this design! I have a friend who just love peacocks and this will be perfect for her. I couldn't help noticing that the basic shape also suggests an Easter egg….lots of possibilities! Thank you for sharing it! I may make a solid-colored center version for the babies stuck in the hospital over the Easter weekend.
Aw, that's a sweet idea Dani. I'm glad you like it. It could be beyond adorable paired with an amigurumi peacock for those Project Night Night bags.
I have a niece who is expecting a daughter next month and the theme of the baby's room is peacocks! I will start on a blanket tomorrow!!!Thanks for posting the pattern!
Glad to be so helpful my anonymous friend!
Thanks so much for sharing. I liked this so much I went to your Ravelry store and had to by the sweet little hat pattern!
Thank you so much Nanaliz! I really appreciate that! Enjoy them both!
Hello and thanks for the free pattern. I love peacocks, so my next stop is Yarn purchase for the turquoise. Love It! Thanks again.
Great Carla! Glad I could give you an excuse to go yarn shopping 😉

Thanks Angela and Marie! I'm glad you like it! I felt pretty cool for designing it 😉
LOVE this square! Thank you so much for the pattern!

LoveLoveLove!Thank you for sharing!!
Thank you for this pattern. I volunteer at a Zoo and we have beeen asked to knit / crochet various birds and animals and Peacock was on the list. Sadly, I can't find a pattern for a whole peacock but at least I can start on some feathers using this for a guide 🙂
I'm so glad you are all enjoying it! I've googled pictures of peacock crochet and seem some beautiful amigurumi, but I don't know if any of them have patterns. Good luck on your zoo project!
I LOVE THIS SQUARE YOU CREATED AND CAN ALSO SEE THIS AS AN EASTER EGG AFGHAN WITH ALTERNATING RABBITT SQUARES. GREAT DESIGN AND THANKS FOR SHARING.
Thank you for your time and talent. My bedroom is in peacocks so I will make a throw for the bed. Bless You =^..^=
Beautiful, my daughter loves peacock feathers, I will be making this for her thank you sooo much for sharing
Really fine looking granny square and one I will try out. Thank you so much, Ann!Linda
How can I print the pattern for myself with out the side ads covering the actual directions?
You could probably just copy and paste the text. If it were me, I would use my “snip-it” tool to take a partial screen shot of just the pattern. If you have Windows 7, you should have a “snip-it” tool.
I am making afghans for all of my great nieces and my niece tagged me in this picture and said “Where's mine? This one will do” lol So now I get to do one more. Thanks for posting.
THANK you sooo much for this amazing pattern! I guess I better get busy making one for my daughters wedding gift!
I tried making this for hours last night. no matter what I do, I cannot get the second round to be 23 stitches. It ALWAYS ends up being 25 stitches. Is there any way you could do a step by step photo tutorial or something? I so desperately want to make this I cant even tell you and I literally tried everything I could think of the make this last night. I fudged the stitches to make the stitches equal 23 but of course none of the other rounds matched up so it just became a mess. If there is a way I can send you a video of me doing the round so you can tell me what the heck I am doing wrong I will gladly do that, because I really want to make this square!!
Hi Sarah, I would love so much to help you. I am too busy this week to be able to make a video, but I could probably watch one from you if you want to send me a link to a video, or an actual video or picture. You can email to top.banana @ bananamoonstudio . com (take out all the spaces). Make sure that you have the correct # of stitches in your first rnd and that you aren't stitching into your turning chain, since it does not count as a stitch. That can be a common problem. I will have a little more free time next week, so, if we haven't solved the problem by then, I might be able to do more at that point.
Great pattern, thanks for making it free.
Thank you so much for sharing. A friend has made a wreath of peacock feathers and this will go perfect with it!!
What an awesome square! I love, love, love it!!!Can't wait to make these – already trying to figure out a border for a blanket.Do you have a picture somewhere to show completed blanket?I make blankets for Project Linus and Project Nite Nite….both such wonderful causes! Have been doing this for years and love the feeling I get making and giving these much needed items.Thank you for creating and sharing this pattern…again would love to see pic of one you have completed.
Hi Cheribella! I'm so glad you like it! Are you on Ravelry? There are several projects on there that could give you ideas. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/peacock-feather-square
I just made my first for a pillow in greens and it looked like a leaf! I am also going to try thread yarn and only rows 1 – 3 with an A hook for earrings.
Thank you very much for your peacock square, I the design and color combo. I can not wait to start this as a baby blanket for a friend.
Hi, I love the pattern, but I have a quik ?.Row 2 when you say 2sc in next dc sc in next dc do I repeat this step 2X or just the sc 2XRow 3 (sc in next 2 sts 2 sc in next st) 3X do I repeat this step () 3X or 2sc in the next 3 sts? Thanks ginger
Hi Ginger. You'll repeat the 2 sc in next dc, and the sc in next dc. The “2 times” applies to everything inside the parentheses. Same for Row 3. The “3 times” applies to everything inside the parentheses. Hope this helps, but if not, let me know.
Thanks so much it help, I change the colors to look like Easter egg, I'm in a crochet group and we make and exchange sq each month so I'm make mine to look like Easter eggs.
Mine isn't coming out very square…..not sure what I'm doing wrong.
Hi Cheryl. This is probably just because no two crocheters are exactly alike. You and I probably make our stitches just a little differently. If you have a spot that tends to be too “low” you could use a taller stitch there in round 4. Or if there is a “high” spot, use a shorter stitch there in round 4. It may take a little trial and error, as it did for me when I designed it. Also, know that mine tended to dip a little too in just one spot, but the way I've written it, was the best square I could make after working around this pointed oval shape. However, if it is a little off, rest assured that when you attach several squares into a blanket, they will help pull each other into better squares.
Love this pattern! Could you please clarify one part…Rnd 4 last st, what is dtr?thanks
Hi Heather, A Double Treble (dtr) is a very tall crochet stitch. You wrap the yarn around your hook 3 times before inserting hook into the designated stitch, then: yo, pull up a loop, (yo, pull through 2 loops)3 times. Happy Stitching! April
Love Love the pattern making this with my group at the Fiber Art's group at Savannah Veteran's clinic we all just love love it.Also thanks for it being freeðŸ™Œ
You are welcome! I'm glad to be a small part of your group! 🙂
Thank you so much for this pattern. I have been searching for a pattern for weeks, (literally) ,to make for my Aunt, she hrlpime to beat a recent addiction to drugs. She got me crocheting again, and for over 6 months I have been clean. I wanted desperately to make something special for her. Her two favorite things are California Raisins, and Peacocks. So this is perfect. I can not begin to tell you how great ful I am. Many blesdoyo everyone who helped make this possible.
You’re welcome for the pattern. Congratulations on your accomplishment! That’s so great!
