This amigurumi raindrop crochet pattern is sure to make you smile. We’ve been having a lot of rain recently and this was a fun way to keep the Winter blues at bay.
The raindrop is worked from the top down and the only sewing required is for attaching the eyes. I had some Bernat Baby Blanket yarn sitting in my stash and this was a good way to use it up. The super bulky yarn makes it come together really quickly and it’s the perfect cuddle size.

The pattern is written using US terminology and measures approximately 11″ (28cm) tall when using the materials listed.
Pieces are worked in a continuous spiral starting with a magic ring unless otherwise specified. Mark the first stitch of each round with a removable stitch marker.
Gauge is not important in this pattern. Use a hook size to match your chosen yarn. Make sure that your stitches are tight enough to prevent stuffing showing through and adjust hook size if necessary.

In white worsted weight yarn, make 11 surface slip stitches between R3 and R4. Knot the ends behind the eye and trim. For more help with this section there is a premium pattern available with step-by-step photos.
Sew the eyes on over R16 and R19, approximately 4 sts apart. Using a small amount of pink worsted weight yarn, embroider cheeks just under and to the side of each eye. I embroidered each cheek over 2 sts and went over it 5 times to get my desired thickness.
