I-Cord technique

This technique is really quick, and you can make easy shapes by pinning it to a template as you go.....

Use any scrap yarn / wool Cast 3 stitches onto dpns Knit 3, then instead of turning around, slide the stitches to the other end of the dpn and knit again, keep knitting to desired length. This will create a thin rope, which you can then wind into any shape.

For the cloud I sketched the shape onto a piece of paper, and wound it around, starting on the outside, I pinned it, and then stitched it together on one side.

I have used 100% pure wool for the cloud so i can felt it in the wash, then Im going to sew it onto a canvas bag!
