Hi!
I'm really new to crocheting and the only thing i've made is a hat.
But I am in a sewing class at school (where we also crochet, knit and felt Wink) so I decided to make this rainbow scarf:

Well, how should I do the clouds?
Does anyone know a pattern I could use? x]

Or should I just make a couple of circles and put them together?

Thanks Smiley

P.s. The picture is of a awesome scarf samsara made for a swap Wink

You could crochet a rectangle and then shell around it.

I think each cloud is 7 hexagons stitched together. I like this one: http://www.yarncat.com/hexcloth.html
Just figure out how big each hex needs to be and crochet that many rows. Good luck!

PS I wanted to make this scarf last year, but after I'd crocheted the scarf, I didn't want to bother with weaving in my ends, let alone making 14 hexes, so I put fringe on my scarf, and made a little cloud pin. Here's mine: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=134391.msg1316187#msg1316187

this site teaches how to make shells:
http://crochet.about.com/library/blshells.htm
if i were going to make the clouds, i'd do them as a rectangle in sc, or an assymetric shape, but making sure the number of stitches on the width and the number of rows is a multiple of the number of stitches needed for the shell. is that clear, or am i babbling?
