Crochet Pattern: Mushroom! Mushroom!

I think I am going to try and share a pattern of some sort every Tuesday. We’ll see how long before I run out 😉

I can very clearly remember when I first visited BadgerBadgerBadger.com. I was supposed to be finishing up the final group portfolio project for a Business Communications class in college when my partner decided to click. I don’t really understand right now why it struck me the way that it did back then but I was a changed lady. That’s why I named this pattern Mushroom! Mushroom! years after that fateful, hysterical-to-tears evening. Hell, I’m surprised I didn’t also create some toe-touching badgers and that struttin’ snake. Anyway. “Here’s an oldie but a goodie. At least where I come from.” Download the pattern PDF at the link below.

Mushroom! Mushroom!

Materials:

Small amount of worsted weight yarn

Size F crochet hook (or any size you prefer depending on size/gauge)

Yarn/Tapestry needle

Yarn ends or other stuffing material

Note:  Work in continuous amigurumi style rounds (without joining). These are worked in two pieces the stem and cap, then sewn together after stuffing. Gauge is unimportant for this project.

Stem:

Round 1: Work 6 sc in a ring using magic loop OR ch 2 and work 6 sc into 2nd ch from hook. (6 sc)

Round 2-4: Work three rounds even.

Round 5: Work 2 sc in each sc around. (12 sc)

Round 6: Work *2 sc in first sc, 1 sc * Repeat from * around. (18 sc)

Round 7: Work even. Finish off, stuffing any yarn tails into stem.

Cap:

Round 1: Work 6 sc in a ring using magic loop OR ch 2 and work 6 sc into 2nd ch from hook. (6 sc)

Round 2: Work 2 sc in each sc around. (12 sc)

Round 3: Work *2 sc in first sc, 1 sc * Repeat from * around. (18 sc)

Round 4-6: Work three rounds even.

Round 5: Work one round even in back loops only. Finish off leaving yarn tail for sewing.

Assembly:

Stuff cap very sparingly for a “button” type mushroom (allows the stem to “sink” into the cap more) or stuff firmly for a more classic “toadstool” look. Sew cap to stem using yarn tail and tapestry needle through inner loops only.
