Picture of Rainy Day Mobile

As soon as I saw this picture online, I knew I had to make this adorable amigurumi mobile for my friend's baby!   The original pattern is from the Crochet Today magazine, May/June 2010 issue.  I found it for free via this link, but of course I modified it some to fit my own needs.

I used Lion Brand FUN! yarns for everything except the sun.  For that I wanted a brighter yellow, and chose something from Red Heart.    I also changed up the colors for the rainbow since I really wanted to include purple!  

So enjoy this pattern, and if you take the time to make it up, be sure to post it here!

Thank you!
I don't know how to crochet but i think I will learn just to make this !! Only thing though, if your a baby what do you see when the mobile is hanging above you? anyway to alter it so the baby can see what we see?

Well, I suppose you could put it at the foot of the crib. Otherwise, you could certainly arrange them individually facing downwards on a hanger of some sort!
Awesome! It reminds me of this art installation by crochet artist howie woo http://woowork.blogspot.com/2010/02/raining-cats-and-dogs.html
