NOTES:
Gauge isn’t important, just ensure that your hook and yarn sizes result in a fairly tight stitch that won’t allow the fiberfil to show thru.

Numbers at the end of rounds/rows indicate the total number of stitches that should be in the round/row.

This pattern includes a little bit of ‘sculpting’ of the pieces. This is done by using a sewing thread that matches the piece you’re working on and sewing through the piece indicated to create shapes and forms. (see the cloud cap on the drifloon, the puffs of the cloud are sculpted using sewing thread). Use a single strand of sewing thread when sculpting, and try to keep your stitches buried in creases of the crochet to make them mostly invisible. By pulling your stitches gently tighter, it creates the shapes in the piece. It’s not necessary to be precise in this particular sculpting application, because there are never any two clouds exactly alike.
