Here is a little cloud you can crochet in just a few minutes. Using fluffy pillow-like baby yarn, the result is a soft and squishy cloud that you can use as an applique or other decoration.
One Round Cloud
By Jennifer Dickerson
- J (6.0 mm) hook (the hook on the yarn label called for a "K" hook, but I went down a hook size to make mine extra squishy)
- White yarn (yarn used for the cloud shown is called "Baby's First" by Lion Brand in the "Pixie Dust" colorway)
- Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
- The cloud is about 2 inches wide (5 cm). However, feel free to experiment with different hooks and yarn to make a variety of different clouds...perhaps an entire sky of them is in order!
Foundation: Chain 6 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.
(I wrote round 1 written in column format to make it easier to follow along)
All stitches worked into center of ring:
...join with a slip stitch to close your cloud and fasten off.
Weave in ends and you're all finished! Shape a bit with your hands if needed.
