How to Crochet Amigurumi Raindrops

A crochet amigurumi raindrop with a big kaiwaii grinAll week I’ve been humming raindrops keep fallin’ on my head. All because of these adorable crochet amigurumi raindrops!

Summer showers aren’t so sweet (especially when you’ve forgotten your umbrella!) but these wee raindrops are.

I crocheted these little guys as an illustration of how an amigurumi’s face can change it’s whole appearance. Seriously, it makes a huge difference. Check it out:

How fun is that gif?? It’s a little blurry though, so here’s another glamour shot of one of the raindrops:

This really shows the size. I’ve been calling these ‘little’, and they are compared to, say, an armchair, but as raindrops go, they are HUGE, right?

It doesn’t make sense to have raindrops just by themselves… so I crocheted a cloud.

Want to crochet your own rainstorm? I’ve written out the free pattern for the raindrops. (Not for the cloud, sorry – I just winged it.) Give it a go!


Crochet Amigurumi Raindrops – Free Pattern

This pattern is suitable for amigurumi beginners. As always, I’m using US crochet terms here. If anything doesn’t make sense, check out my page on crochet techniques, or leave a comment.

  • Work  6 single crochet (sc) into a magic loop. Join with a slip stitch. 6 stitches
  • Working in spirals, 2 sc in every sc. 12 stitches
  • Work 3 rounds.
  • *Sc 4, decrease* twice. 10 stitches.
  • Work one round. Place eyes and stuff.
  • *Sc 3, decrease* twice. 8 stitches.
  • *Sc 2, decrease* twice. 6 stitches.
  • *Sc, decrease* twice. 4 stitches.
  • Sc all remaining stitches together and fasten off.

What to do with your rainstorm’s worth of crochet amigurumi raindrops? I think these are the perfect canvas for practising faces. With only 11 rounds of crochet, these work up incredibly quickly, allowing you to practise to your heart’s content. I think these would look especially sweet hanging up in a child’s room – or why not add a touch of whimsy to your bathroom? I think that’s what I’m going to do with mine!
