Just wanted to share the good fun news that I won a crochet book that was offered in a terrific giveaway done in January by CraftGossip. The giveaway was a fun one. We were asked to find an afghan that closely resembles the name that has been given to the afghan. The post was inspired by a beautiful afghan that hadn’t been named very well.

For my entry, I chose a Peacock Afghan featured on Etsy. Doesn’t it look like a peacock?

As my prize, I’ve won a crochet book called Twinkie Chan’s Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies. I can’t wait to get this in the mail! I’ll share more about it with you after it arrives. Remember that Tuesdays are always crochet book review day around here. icon smile Yay   I Won a Crochet Book from a Crochet Blog Giveaway!

UPDATE: Many, many people have contacted me to ask me where to find the crochet pattern for this afghan. The only time I’ve seen the afghan was in the Etsy store and that’s now not open anymore so I don’t know of any way to contact the seller. Several other bloggers, like The Crochet Dude, have followed up on trying to find the pattern. The best lead I’ve gotten is that it’s in a crochet pattern book called Afghan Enchantment which is often available used on Amazon. However, I have not personally confirmed whether or not that is where the pattern comes from.

I have been looking for a pattern for a peacock afghan and LOVE this. Where can I get it?




THank you @CrochetBlogger Just picked up the book at BN.com. Hopefully that pattern is included. The afghan would match my den perfectly!


I love the afghan! Where did you find the pattern? I'd love to make something like this!!!!

@Adoryble2 That's a great question. I found the afghan online through Etsy but it's no longer available there. The Crochet Dude asked around on his Facebook to find out where the pattern is and the best answer seems to be that it's in Afghan Traditions, a 1996 book by Jennifer Christiansen Simcik. I ordered a copy of the book for myself to find out but I haven't gotten it yet so I can't confirm for sure.
