Finish off the first piece you make. DON’T finish off the second piece. Instead, continue on the following steps.

Rainbow Assembly:

Place the two rainbow pieces together – have the WRONG SIDES face each other. This means the ugly side of the safety eyes will be out towards us and the pretty side of the eyes are on the inside (Pic 1). Line up the rainbow’s stitches together (Pic 2). Insert your hook through BOTH stitches (Pic 3). Yarn over (Pic 4).

1. 2. 3. 4.

Pull the yarn through (Pic 5-6). Yarn over again (Pic 7). Pull through both loops (Pic 8).

5. 6. 7. 8.

You have just made one single crochet! (Pic 9). Continue crocheting the rainbow together with a single crochet. Continue single crocheting when you meet the side of the rainbow (Pic 10).  Change to the next color by using the finished off tail end of the next color yarn (Pic 11-12). Once you meet the curve, continue making the single crochets together (Pic 13).

9. 10. 11. 12.

Single crochet the next side, but DO NOT single crochet the last 3 colors together (Pic 14). Finish off here and leave this strand uncut because we will use it later. Tie the other strands of yarn together to form firm knots and cut excess yarn (Pic 15).

13. 14. 15.

Rainbow Assembly Part 2:

Look at the hole we left (Pic 1). Bring the inside of the rainbow out through that hole (Pic 2-4). The correct side of the rainbow will now be exposed (Pic 4). Stuff the rainbow firmly now (Pic 4). After this, using the yellow tail of yarn we left, sew the remaining stitches closed (Pic 6). Weave in ends.

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Smile:

Black Embroidery Thread

Insert needle next to the toy’s right eye and pull the needle out next to the toy’s left eye as shown (Pic 1). Reinsert needle into the original insertion spot (Pic 2), and pull needle out at the middle as shown, making sure the needle lands ABOVE the thread (Pic 2). Reinsert needle into the same spot, making sure the needle lands BELOW the thread (Pic 3). Pull needle out at the original insertion spot (Pic 3). Tie both ends of thread into a firm knot and bring into the toy to hide. Cut any excess thread. Done! (Pic 4).

Sun Rays:

In Yellow

Take a ~4″ piece of yarn (Pic 1). Insert your hook into one of the front loops we left in Round 8 (Pic 2). Yarn over with the strand (Pic 3) and pull it through the loop (Pic 4-5).

1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Yarn over with both ends of the strand (Pic 6) and pull through (Pic 7-8). Repeat this all around (Pic 9). Trim the yarn to your liking (Pic 10). Done!

Insert needle with thread a few stitches over from the right sun’s eye as shown (Pic 1) and pull needle out at next to the left of the sun’s right eye (Pic 1). Insert needle next to the sun’s left eye (Pic 2). Pull needle out at the middle of the sun as shown, making sure the needle lands ABOVE the thread (Pic 2). Reinsert needle into the same spot, making sure the needle lands BELOW the thread (Pic 3). Pull the needle to the left of the left eye as shown (Pic 3). Reinsert needle where shown (Pic 4).

1. 2. 3. 4.

Pin the sun on as shown and sew on. Weave in ends.

5. 6. 7.

Cloud: (Make 2)

In White

The cloud is made by creating a chain and working COMPLETELY around the chain to form a round.
Round 1: Ch 13 (Pic 1). Sc 3 times in the 2nd Ch from the hook (Pic 2). Sc in the next 10 st. Sc 3 times in the last Ch. Now we’re at the end of the chain (Pic 3). Turn your work to the OTHER side of the chain, where we haven’t made any stitches yet (Pic 4). Working on that other side, Sc in the next 10 st (Pic 5, Stitch count: 26) Add eye stitch markers into the 19th and 24th stitch.

1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
Round 2: *Inc* in the next 3 st, Sc in the next 10 st, *Inc* in the next 3 st. Now we’ll be working on the other side, Sc in the next 10 st (32)
Round 3: Repeat *Inc, Sc in the next st* 3 times. Sc in the next 10 st. Repeat *Inc, Sc in the next st* 3 times. Sc in the next 10 st (38)
Round 4: Repeat *Inc, Sc in the next 2 st* 3 times. Sc in the next 10 st. Repeat *Inc, Sc in the next 2 st* 3 times. Sc in the next 10 st (44)
Round 5: Repeat *SlSt in the next 2 st, Dc 2 times in the next st, Trc 1 time in the next 2 st, Dc 2 times in the next st* 6 times.
SlSt in the next 2 st, Dc 2 times in the next st, Trc 1 time in the next 2 st, Dc 2 times in the next st, Dc in the next st, SlSt in the next st.
Finish off the first piece you make. DON’T finish off the second piece you make. Instead, continue on the next step. Add eyes into the marked areas now.

Assembly:

Place the two cloud pieces together, making sure the eyes are facing out (Pic 2) and the stitches line up together (Pic 3). Going through BOTH stitches (Pic 4), Sc the clouds together until they’re fully crocheted together. Once done place the cloud on the right side of the rainbow and sew on. Weave in ends.
