There are few more beautiful animals than peacocks. Although their singing reminds one of Florence Jenkins, the absolutely amazing plumage is a sight to behold. Pavo cristatus, the Indian or common peacock, shimmers in blues and turquoises all over. But the real piece de resistance are the tail feathers. When the male peacock fans out his tail, the beautiful, wispy weathers spread out to reveal the “eyes” at the tips. It’s quite a sight to behold. In older times, they were considered an essential animal to have in your gardens for that very reason. Crocheting is a great way to bring some of the beauty of peacock feathers into your home and add it to your projects.
