I show you this mostly for inspiration. Caitlin doesn’t offer a pattern, but you can reproduce this yourself from the numerous pictures on her blog. Why do I like this so much? I absolutely adore dangly things. A lot of my freeform crochet winds up with all kinds of beads, charms, and buttons hanging from all the unwoven in ends. I absolutely adore beads and really like the way these will catch the sunlight above baby’s bed. The beads Caitlin has used look remarkably like rain drops, don’t you think? I don’t have a baby to hang this for, but I’m likely to make one to hang in the corner of a room anyway. So there!
PS: This picture really does not do justice to Caitlin’s design. Please visit her blog and look at her other pictures to get the full experience of her rain cloud.
