Calling All Crocheters--Follow-Up Cloud Pattern

On 15 July, we posted an adorable crocheted cloud and asked for volunteer crocheters to make up a bunch of them for upcoming Crops of Luv albums.  A pattern was requested and Caitlin Walker from Walker Whimsy was kind enough to share her original pattern with Crops of Luv.  THANK YOU so much, Caitlin Walker!
Unfortunately, the pictures that accompanied Caitlin's written instructions wouldn't load, but hopefully our experienced crocheting friends will be able to figure out the pattern from these instructions and the previous photo from our 15 July post.  Crops of Luv hopes there are LOTS of crocheting buddies out there who will whip up bunches of these adorable clouds for upcoming albums.  THANK YOU in advance!

Cloud Pattern

-G hook
-worsted weight yarn

ch - chain
sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet

Ch 84. Skip 4, sc in fifth ch from hook.

*Ch 2, skip 1 stitch, sc*. Repeat from * to * to end. Turn.

*sc, ch1, 3 hdc, ch1, sc* in first ch-2 space. Repeat * to * in each ch-2 space and beginning ch-4 space.

Finish off, leaving a long tail for sewing.

To make the cloud shape, take one end and begin to spiral the crocheted piece around itself (as if you were making a rosette). Do this with about 1/2 of the length.

Next, grasp the remaining half a few inches below the end. Spiral that piece around to make another "puff", leaving approximately six inches uncoiled.

Take this piece and thread it through the center of the second puff, then spiral it around.

Using the long tail, sew everything together so it retains its "cloud" shape.
