All 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!
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.
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!
Creative Crochet Projects is a fast, fun book of delightful patterns which are accessible to beginning crocheters (and a treat for more advanced hookers).

In the last six months, I’ve sewed a whole bunch of face masks. Most face masks fit well, but none were perfect. We picked up a couple of ready-made reusable face masks to try out, and J decided he preferred them. The pattern is easy as anything to make – easier than any other pattern […]
