April Showers Bring May Flowers CROCHET RAIN DROP Pattern?

I thought April could be April showers, remember, and was looking for a crochet pattern for a rain drop. Then I thought why? Who would want to crochet a rain drop?

I couldn't find a pattern I liked, so I just started crocheting and this is what I came up with. All the patterns I found called for worsted weight yarn, which I love to use, but I didn't want a huge rain drop! So I used my blue crochet thread and a #7 steel crochet hook. This one measures just under 3". The next one I make, I promise I will write down what I did so you can have the pattern and make some, too.

Maybe several could be crocheted and strung like a little garland. Maybe one could be attached to a skewer and stuck in a plant. Any other ideas out there? I will try to get more made and add them to a garland so you can see what that would look like. I left the thread attached so it could be tied onto a keyring or something. I would love to hear more ideas.

What do you think? Did I keep my promise? It IS a rain drop!

I love your crocheted rain drop - that's my kind of project ;-)

BTW, I noticed the "100 flowers to knit & crochet" and I've ordered it from Amazon. I love looking all these little designs.

Thank you for the kudos......I love little projects, too. AND that book is very tempting for me as well. Let me know how you like it. I may have to get one. I looked all over the Net one time for crochet flowers and didn't find anything I liked. Let me know.
