Mushroom Trio Pattern

Updated: Feb 29

Hey everyone!! Welcome back to a new free pattern Friday!! I know every week I say I’m really excited to share that pattern with you all, but this one might be my most excited yet! I just absolutely love the versatility of these mushrooms and all the different patterns and colors you can give them! Stick around til the end of the post to see all the different variations I came up with while writing this pattern!

I’ve been really wanting to make something else mushroom themed since I wrote the mushroom purse pattern and when I started thinking about redecorating my office, this pattern idea came to me. I wanted something small-ish that would sit nicely on a shelf with my live plants to tie them in with all the yarn in my stash. Crochet mushrooms are so perfect for this, because not only are they cute and made of yarn, but they’re also kind of plants! Plus, now I have this wonderful cottage-core vibe going on!

This pattern is super easy and straightforward and can be customized all kinds of ways! In this pattern, you can make three different sizes of mushrooms; small, medium, and large. You can leave off the ruffle and spots or add gems or beads! It’s just so “mush” fun to customize them! Heh. Mush.. Get it?? *ahem* Anyway, let’s just get into the pattern, shall we?

For this pattern you will need:

-Worsted weight yarn (size 4)

-Polyester Fiber Fill

-3.75mm crochet hook

-Yarn needle

-Scissors

-Stitch markers


Abbreviations:

Mr- magic ring

St- stitch

Sc- single crochet

Inc- increase (sc twice in one stitch)

Dec- decrease (sc two stitches together)

FO- finish off

BLO- back loops only



Small Mushroom:


Stem (in Aran):

Round 1: mr 6 [6]

Round 2: inc x6 [12]

Round 3: BLO, sc around [12]

Rounds 4-5: sc around [12]

FO, hide tail, lightly stuff if you want. I usually do not because I find it harder to get them to stay standing when they’re stuffed.



Cap (in secondary color):

Round 1: mr 6 [6]

Round 2: inc x6 [12]

Round 3: (sc 1, inc)x6 [18]

Round 4: sc 1, inc (sc 2, inc) x5, sc 1 [24]

Rounds 5-6: sc around [24]

Round 7: BLO (sc 2, dec)x6 [18]

Round 8: (sc 1, dec)x6 [12]


Tie off, stuff lightly. If making Amanita, embroider spots, I used french knots to make the spots once, but it was pretty difficult. If you embroider with the French knots, I highly recommend doing in the middle of a stitch (where there’s a little “x”) instead of in between stitches or else the knot will likely just pull through.


Medium Mushroom:


Stem (in Aran):

Round 1: mr 6 [6]

Round 2: inc x6 [12]

Round 3: (sc 1, inc) x6 [18]

Round 4: sc 1, inc (sc 2, inc) x5, sc 1 [24]

Rounds 6-10: sc around [24]

Tie off, leaving long tail for sewing. Stuff lightly.


Cap:

Round 1: mr 6 [6]

Round 2: inc x6 [12]

Round 5: (sc 3, inc) x6 [30]

Round 6: sc 2, inc (sc 4, inc)x5, sc 2 [36]

Round 7: (sc 5, inc)x6 [42]

Rounds 8-11: sc around [42]

Round 12: BLO (sc 5, dec)x6 [36]

Round 13: sc 2, dec, (sc 4, dec)x5, sc 2 [30]

Round 14: (sc 3, dec)x6 [24]

Small spot (make 2):

Mr 6, ss into first st, tie off leaving a long tail for sewing.

Tie off, leaving tail for sewing.


Half large (make 1) :

Row 2: inc x3, ch1, turn [6]

Row 3: (sc 1, inc)x3 [9]

Tie off, leaving tail for sewing.


Now it is time for assembly! Attach the stems to the caps and lightly stuff the hole as you’re closing it. To make your mushroom stand without wobbling, don't clip the yarn after attaching the cap to the stem. Bring your needle down through the base of the mushroom (I like to do it over the top of the mr) and bring it back up through the stem and tie it off back up at the top of the stem, pulling slightly so that the base is a little concave. Don’t pull too tight or it will make the rest of the stem start to change shape.




After you’re done with that, just add the spots if you wish and you are all set!



As promised, here are the different variations I made while making this pattern!!



Thank you so much for joining me today to make this fun little mushroom trio! I hope you have fun making them and if you do, you should email me at crochet_things@yahoo.com or tag me on Instagram @cutiepie_crochet and show me your finished plushies! <3

Hi there! For the small one, I usually embroider the spots on with white yarn and for the medium one and large one I just crochet them using the instructions in the "spots" section of each size's pattern 💕
