Percy the Peacock – Free Pattern

Have you met Percy. He’s a cute fun little peacock. I’m not sure I like the colors, I may have to change it a bit. Maybe next time.

I hope everyone is having a great Friday and has fun weekend plans.

CH- Chain
FO – Fasten Off

Note: Entire project is worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.

Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.

The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at drunkenauntwendy@gmail.com.
