Peacock Hood

By: Rachel Furlong from

Peacock Hood

"Who doesn't want a cozy hood when it's cool out? This hood is perfect for the little girl in your life! I crocheted this adorable "Peacock" Hood using an H hook and my Caron Cake Yarn. (It's a little more than a one cake project, but you will have some yarn left from your second cake!) It utilizes the crocodile stitch, but instead of scales they are feathers! The instructions are fairly detailed and constructions is straightforward. My daughter loves this hood, I hope that you will too!"

I can recall my children were young they were notorious for losing there hats during the winter months. Now if I would have made something like this I am sure those little hats would never have been lost. I just love this for its uniqueness and I am sure that any young child would love to have it.

This really turned out nice. Even though I have a little crochet knowledge under my belt, I am not sure I will attempt this design until I get a little practice in with the crocodile stitch. I like to make the unexpected and I would say this item ranks up there with the unexpected.

I kinda wish this pattern included more of a headress on the top, to represent an actual peacock. If you could figure out a way to crochet something like that to represent the actual fan of open feathers, it would be a great way to use up some more of that second skein of Caron Cakes!


Hi Tracy, It's right under the yarn weight for this pattern (under the link to access this pattern, difficulty and hook size) - it's a gray button with a + sign on it that says "Save." Thanks! Julia, AFC editor

Oh wow I love this Peacock Hood! The Caron Cake Yarn is perfect of this, giving beautiful color patterns. I like that this isn't to tight around neck but small enough to stay on the head. This pattern is well written and easy to follow that comes out nicely! I'm sure my Grand daughter will love it when she gets it on her birthday.. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

This is a wonderful project that would work as well for a boy as a girl. The rainbow colors or another bright variegated yarn for the peacock, and a silvery grey would make chain mail that any young knight would be proud of. The pattern could be better writtenseveral steps are left to the crafters discretion when there should be sounder directions.
