Crafting Crochet Code Salesforce@Home

Crochet in the Cloud

I’ve posted a few Salesforce inspired crochet patterns now, but this one is extra fun because it’s the Salesforce logo! When I was creating this, I was able to make a cloud in so many different ways and I kept thinking about how that’s what I love so much about Salesforce. There are many ways you can achieve a goal with the platform whether it’s automation or sending an email or even just learning. Each builder finds the best solution that works best for them and best for their org. I love this about crafting too. There are probably a thousand ways you could recreate the Salesforce logo – crochet, knit, cross stitch, leather working, stamping, drawing, bottle caps… The list goes on and on.

I initially started with a white cloud and then a blue one, and then I was inspired by one of my favorite Astro characters – Astro knitting a rainbow scarf – and so I made one in each color of the rainbow! They’d be cute as an applique on a hat or a jacket, or maybe even strung together as a wall hanging! Maybe it’s just one component in a bigger piece! Next month is Pride Month, so its the perfect time to whip some of these up in rainbow colors!

If you make one, I’d love to see it! And if you find another way to make it, I’d love to give that a try too! There are so many of us who I know craft and love Salesforce as much as I do. We can be like craftforce or stitchforce… or just like those crazy people who can’t seem to leave Salesforce at work. šŸ˜‚

Here’s the pattern

It’s a simple pattern, just 2 rows! I found that I had more success with a tighter gauge because it held the shape together better. You can make this with any yarn and any hook size, just pick something that works best for you!

I’m not in any way a pattern writer, so hopefully you can follow along!

Chain 10.

Row 1: DC in 4th chain from hook, DC in next 5 chains, 6 DC in the last chain, DC in the next 6 chains (on other side of chain), 4 DC in the last chain and SL ST to the first chain 3.

Row 2: SL ST in next 3 stitches, 6 DC in next stitch, skip 1, SL ST in next stitch, skip 1, 7 TRC + 1 DC in next stitch, SL ST in next stitch, 6 DC in next stitch, SL ST in next stitch, 6 TRC + 2 DC in next stitch, skip 2 stitches, SL ST in next stitch, 5 SC in next stitch, SL ST in next stitch, finish off.

Boom! You have a cloud!
