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.


You may need to up your crochet hook size to obtain gauge (perhaps even by a few sizes), especially if your crochet is quite tight!

Gauge for the reverse blanket is as follows: The 90 ch for the inner portion of the blanket should measure about 40” wide when worked in pattern for a couple of rows. You’re looking for 4 rows = about 4” as well. The single crochet border of 10 rnds will account for 5” around the edge.
