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!
