Rain cloud appliqué crochet pattern

Thanks for checking out my rain cloud appliqué crochet pattern. I’m currently working on a granny square blanket for my daughters. I plan to fill each square with a different appliqué until I have a big blanket full of the things they love most! This rain cloud appliqué is part of my Sun showers appliqué bundle. Keep checking back on my appliqués page to crochet along.

Rain cloud appliqué description

The rain cloud appliqué measures 9cm wide and 6cm high, the rain drops are just 1.5cm by 2cm. I used 2 different colours to crochet the rain cloud appliqué. You can use your appliqué to brighten up almost any of your crochet projects, I’d love to see what you done with yours!

How it’s made

The rain cloud appliqué crochet pattern beginner skill level. You’ll need to know basic crochet stitches and simple increases. Obviously it may get a little fiddly due to the size but overall its a very fast and easy project. To make the rain cloud appliqué I used 2 colours of DK (weight 3) yarn and a 4mm crochet hook. The whole appliqué uses just 3g (11yds) of yarn.

Gauge / tension

Gauge is important as everyone crochets with a different tension. Therefore, if your 2” swatch doesn’t match up you can change your hook size to suit your tension.

4mm hook – 2” x 2” = 11 rows of 9 sc

Finished sizes

Rain cloud – 9cm x 5cm

Rain drop – 1.5cm x 2cm

Pattern notes

I do not count chains in my stitch count.

Numbers in brackets are the number of rows/stitches.

Stitches separated with a comma are to be made in separate spaces. eg. (sc, inc) would mean sc in first stitch then inc increase in next stitch. eg. (sc x2, inc) would mean sc in first stitch, single crochet in second stitch, then increase in next stitch.

Make all colour changes at the end of the previous row.

When fastening off leave a long tail for sewing if you are attaching the appliqué to something. If you are not sewing the appliqué to anything weave in ends.


You will need the following supplies to complete the crochet project (links will take you directly to my recommended supplies) 

– Crochet hooks 

– Tapestry needle

– DK Yarn

– Stitch markers (optional)

– scissors

– Tape measure
