Free Crochet Cloud Pattern – Roger the Rain Cloud!

Hey there, how are you on this rainy day? I thought a day like this needed a sad little cloud to join the weather gang! Do you hate rain as much as me, or do you like it? I have to admit that jumping in puddles can be pretty fun! And staying in with the curtains drawn and the sound of rain on the windows is super cozy too!
 
What do you think of him? I love him! He’s so squishy, how could anyone be cross with such a super-cute rain cloud as this little guy?

He’s a very close friend of Claude the Cloud, Sandra the Sun and Sally the Snow Cloud. Have you made any of the rest of the weather gang yet?!

Tools & Materials

Crochet Hooks:

2.5mm – (You can use whichever hooks you have to hand but I like to use the Clover Amour hooks – they’re lovely to hold and super light so that you can keep crocheting for longer without your hands getting tired!)

 

Yarn:

Ricorumi 058 – Silver Grey – 25g (1 ball)

Ricorumi 031 – Sky Blue – 25g (1 ball)

Ricorumi 011 -Pink – 25g (1 ball) – (You actually only need a tiny bit of this colour yarn so if you have any left over from a previous make then feel free to use than instead of buying a whole new ball!)

 

Alternative Yarns & Colours:

If you prefer to use a different yarn then go right ahead and use whichever you like! Just remember, that using a different yarn will probably result in your cloud turning our at a slightly different size to mine.

If you want your cloud to look as close as possible but can’t get hold of Ricorumi then I’ve listed the colour alternatives for Sirday Happy Cotton and  Scheepjes Catona here. The colours won’t be an exact match, but they are pretty close!

Ricorumi 058 (Silver Grey) = Sirdar Happy Cotton 757 (Moonbeam) = Scheepjes Catona 172 (Light Silver)

Ricorumi 031 (Sky Blue) = Sirdar Happy Cotton 786 (Yacht) = Scheepjes Catona 146 (Vivid Blue)

Ricorumi 011 (Pink) = Sirdar Happy Cotton 760 (Flamingo) = Scheepjes Catona 238 (Powder Pink)

 

For the mouth:

A small piece of blue felt – I’ve used dark blue but you could use light blue if you prefer!

A small amount of Anchor Stranded Cotton or DMC Stranded Cotton in the corresponding shade (I used Anchor 1036/DMC 3750)

 

Other:

Stuffing

10mm safety eyes

Step 2 - Roger's Rain Drops

Round 1 – sc 6 in Magic Circle

When you pull the magic circle closed make sure that you have the tail of the yarn on the right side of the piece so that it will be outside the body of the raindrop.

Round 2 – *sc 1, inc, sc 1* rep x 2 (8)

Round 3 – *inc, sc 3* rep x 2 (10)

Round 4 – *sc 2, inc, sc 2* rep x 2 (12)

Round 11 – *dec, sc 1* rep x 6 (12)

Stuff the raindrop.

Round 12 – *dec* rep x 6 (6)

Cut the yarn leaving a short tail, then pull through the final stitch. Close the small hole that’s left and finish off as you did when making the cloud.

Make 3 of these raindrops and sew them to the bottom of your cloud using the tail end of yarn from the magic circle.

Finishing off

Cheeks

Using your yarn needle with the pink yarn embroider a small horizontal line just below each eye, with the two cheeks slightly wider apart than the eyes.

Mouth

Cut out a sad mouth shape of blue and use an embroidery needle to whip stitch it onto your cloud’s face centrally below the eyes, using a matching colour of embroidery thread.

YAY!!!!
Your rain cloud is finished!
