View Full Version : Peacock Afghan, white background bird on branch, tail down, eye feathers on border

07-21-2012, 05:10 PM
Does any one have the pattern for a 1960s Coats & Clark or Red Heart pattern of a peacock bird on a branch, back view 3/4 profile, on a white background. The border is the eye feathers from the tail. I saw this pattern and think it was in one of the little free books that these companies displayed by the yarns. At the time I was not able to afford the yarns or the pattern. If anyone has the full & correct pattern I can trade the Toltec Bird Afghan by Bernat full size chart with the yarn color chart for it. I have looked and looked for this pattern but have never been able to find it again. Hope someone can help.

Susan, I saw a peacock afghan, white background on freepatterns.com. Not sure if it is what you are looking for. Hope it helps.--Jan

Welcome to the group! This is the only one close to what you described that I could find online for free. It may not be what you are looking for, but hope it helps you:

The peacock is in full color and the pose is similar to the upper left bird on the "Toltec Birds" afghan. I had the booklet pattern years ago when I was a student but could not afford the yarn. Unfortunately in all my moves I lost the book and have never been able to find the pattern online. I would love to trade the original full embroidery pattern for "Toltec Birds" for the Peacock Bird afghan if it is the pattern I am looking for. :D

The Annie's Attic pattern is not what I am looking for, And it is not the solid color afghan that always comes up when one searches peacock afghan. Thank you all for looking. I am ready to retire in January or February so one of the first things on my always wanted to do list is learn to crochet and silk ribbon embroidery. I will be a more active respondant.
