Peacock Scarf by melzika Peacock Scarf by melzika
I participated in the Secret Santa run by Aryiea. My gift is for ChaosFay, and was designed specially for her. Based on the info I was given to work with, I decided to go with her love of peacock colors, and I ended up just running with the idea. This design was inspired by and created for ChaosFay, but I'm in love with it, and hope to make more similar to this, and other things playing off of the idea of peacock feathers. 

Actually figuring out how to crochet a peacock feather was a challenge, but it was a lot of fun, and I'm very pleased with the results. Now I just need to refine the pattern and write it down before I forget how I did it. :XD: 

All the yarns were acrylic, and I chose them based on the color. There is also a glass bead sewn into each of the peacock feathers. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it, ChaosFay!! :D

EDIT** You can see the awesome choker that she made for me here: chaosfay.deviantart.com/art/Se… And check out her gallery, she has some great stuff there. :)


EDIT EDIT** Thank you so much to Aryiea and Brookette for the DD!!! And thank you to all who faved and commented, I'm sorry I can't respond to everyone individually! Thanks again, I'm so excited! :happybounce:

Oh this I like. Do you have a pattern for it, either here or on Ravelry? (I ask because my mom knits and has a soft spot for the peacocks of our local zoo. )

I don't have a pattern written out yet. I've been working on one, but I've never tried to write a pattern before, and it's hard! :XD: Especially when I mostly just eyeballed this one, so to speak. But if I ever finish the darn thing, I will let you know! :) And thanks!

COOOOL
I like how the feathery ends curl when it's worn, makes it feel more like actual feathers

I wish I had skills like that. The only challenging thing I've made so far was a small pink elephant.
