Crochet Easter Egg Rain Cloud Mobile

Hi Lovies and Happy Spring!

I am excited to bring you new spring and summer patterns!

Decorating for the seasons is always a joy for me and fills the home with comfort.

This adorable Crochet Easter Egg Rain Cloud Mobile is sure to make your little one smile or the perfect addition to your Easter home decor.

I originally intended to permanently attach the crocheted Easter Eggs onto the cloud, but then I got the idea to safety pin them so I can have the Rain Cloud raining all different kinds of adorable things depending on the season!

This is an excellent way to reflect the seasons and holidays in a nursery or child’s room.

I’m definitely going to hang mine in my craft room for a smile and inspiration year-round.

So stay posted for new ‘raindrop’ patterns.

Enjoy!

Face:

Using your tapestry needle and black yarn, sew on a pair of cute little eyes and a mouth. Feel free to find joy in creating your own unique face or no face at all! If you’re going to hang your Easter Egg Rain Cloud Mobile over a crib, you may even want to put a face on both sides. Mine is displayed on a wall, so it is only one-sided.

Joining and Stuffing:

Line up both pieces of your Rain Cloud with the appropriate sides facing outward. We’re going to join with a row of single crochet, starting on the bottom right of the straight edge (so your cloud is upside down with the smallest curve on the right). The only exception here is in the dips of the cloud curves, we slip stitch instead of single crochet. This keeps the curves looking nice, rounded, and fluffy! (3 slip stitches)

Before you complete the last 15 or so stitches, add your stuffing. Make it nice and cloud-like! Complete the row, ch 1, and tie off. Make sure to weave in the loose end. Ta-da! Isn’t it just adorable?! I love that warm, happy smile. It sort of makes me want to take a nap….zzzzz.

Easter Egg Pattern (make 5):

Now we switch to a G hook.

(We will be working in continuous rounds so I recommend using a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of each round; * denotes repeat until the end of the round)

In a magic circle, ch 1, SC 6, pull tight

Round 1: 2 SC in each stitch* (12 stitches)

Round 2: 2 SC in the first stitch, SC in the next* (18 stitches)

Rounds 3-5: SC in each stitch (18 stitches)

Round 6: SC dec in the first stitch, SC in the next* (12 stitches)

Rounds 7-8: SC in each stitch (12 stitches)

At this point, add your stuffing!

Round 9: SC dec in the first stitch, SC in the next* (8 stitches)

Round 10: SC dec three times or until the opening is closed

Now chain the desired length you wish for the eggs to hang from your cloud. I chained 25 for three of the eggs and 20 for two of them so they would be a little staggered like rain. Trim your yarn and pull through your last chain.

Obviously, you can make as many or as few eggs in any colors you like. You could even tie off before chaining and simply have crocheted Easter eggs!

Attaching the Easter Eggs to the Rain Cloud Mobile:

Since mine was designed to hang on the wall, I attached five equally spaced safety pins to the back of my cloud near the bottom. Since I want to be able to change out the ‘raindrops’ throughout the seasons, this makes it easy to pin through the last chain on each drop and remove them after the holiday.

If you are creating your Easter Egg Rain Cloud Mobile to hang over a crib, you’ll probably want to use tiny safety pins on the very bottom of your cloud or leave longer tails on your eggs in order to tie them through the bottom stitches in a bow or loose knot. If you create one using this method, please let us know how it turns out!

Hanging:

Now for the best part! There are so many possibilities when it comes to hanging your mobile. You can use ribbon, string, or yarn in any color you like. I happened to have some twine (is that the right word?); the stuff I used to make hemp jewelry when I was a little kid. I used my crochet hook to pull it through two different stitches on the upper back of the cloud. I  had to re-position it several times to get it to hang how I wanted. Then I tied a simple double knot and trimmed the ends. Easy peasy. Once again, if you’re hanging it over a crib, you’ll probably want to place the hanger through the top stitches of the cloud.

Ta-Da!
