Java Peacock Feather Motif Blanket: Free JAYG Instructions

crochet peacock feather pattern free blanket instructions

The Java Peacock Feather motif was one of the first Peacock Feathers I designed and is one of the largest. It has always been one of my favourites and for that reason I also use it as my designing business' logo.

I knew that the Java motif would be very suitable as a join-as-you-go motif for a blanket but I never got around to actually adjust the design for that purpose. I was focused more on single motifs for coasters, garlands, appliques and bookmarks. So I was very happy and surprised when Cassie, one of my lovely customers, sent me a picture of a Java motif blanket! Isn't it stunning? And guess what.....the instructions for joining and for the trim are now available for FREE on Ravelry (details below). 

Another thing that surprised me is that using different colour combinations can make the feather look so completely different. My feather and the one in the blanket may look as two dissimilar designs but they are definitely the same! I'm really inspired now to work them in the colours of the blanket too. Details on the yarn used can also be found in the free instructions.

In order to make this blanket, you'll first need my Java Peacock Feather motif, which is for sale on both Etsy and Ravelry, and then combine that pattern with the one available for free on Ravelry (for all the links see below). You'll need to adjust the final round of the motif to make it suitable for the join-as-you-go method, which is explained in detail in the free instructions. After that you can join as many motifs as you want.

  4. If I was to use 8ply would a size 4hook be sufficient?

    1. That entirely depends on your tension, which is different for everybody. I always make a swatch to see whether I like the density of the fabric created with a specific hook size. I personally use a 4.5 or 5mm hook with 8ply when making feathers but for a blanket in 8ply I would use perhaps a 5.5mm hook.

    1. Hi Rachael, could you please let me know when you bought the pattern. I cannot find your order confirmation when I search for your name. The pattern for joining the feathers is free and will send it with the Java pattern. Thank you.
