Crochet Mushroom pattern in English

In my last post I told you about these gorgeous small mushrooms. Pattern is to be found at IA Nyckelpiga in Swedish and she has been so kind to let me translate this pattern into English. Thanks dear blog friend. :D

IA Nyckelpiga has made a lot of fun small crochet creations, often something for a kid's kitchen play such as toast with cheese and cucumber, wild strawberries on a straw, fried eggs, apples etc. She also makes her own crochet pillows, stuffed up animals and afghans in the most beautiful color combinations.  She makes her own patterns and shares them on her blog. You should really pop in and see her. The picture is of IA's mushrooms from her blog.

Well lets get to mushroom making, shall we?

Preferably use a very fine lace yarn and small hook, hook size 1.5 - 2.0. This is a little bit of a fiddly project so be patient. The results are so much worth the effort I will assure you.

Abbreviations as follows in UK/US terms:


ch - chain

dc/sc - double crochet/single crochet
sl st - slip stitch



The hat/top of the mushroom

Red yarn

Row 1:
Chain 6, sl st into 1st ch to make a magic ring.

Row 2:
2 dc/sc in every chain, sl st in 1st dc/sc (= total 12 dc/sc)


Row 3:
Increase every other stitch like this - *1 dc/sc, 2 dc/sc in same ch*, repeat * 5 times, sl st in 1st dc/sc (= total 18 dc/sc)

Row 4+5:
dc/sc in every stitch, sl st in 1st dc/sc

Change to white yarn

Row 6:
Decrease every other stitch crocheting dc/sc in the front loop only, sl st in 1st dc/sc.



Row 7:
Decrease every stitch crochetiung dc/sc in the front loop only, sl st in 1st dc/sc. Fasten off and weave in the end.

The foot of the mushroom

Row 1:
Chain 6, sl st into 1st ch to make a magic ring.

Row 2:
2 dc/sc in every chain, sl st in 1st dc/sc (= total 12 dc/sc)

Row 3+4:
dc/sc in every stitch, sl st in 1st dc/sc

Row 5:
Decrease every other stitch crocheting dc/sc in the front loop only, sl st in 1st dc/sc.

Row 6+7:
dc/sc in every stitch, sl st in 1st dc/sc. Save a longer end to sew on foot to the top with. 



Stuff the foot, not the hat. Sew on white pearls or embroider spots.


Enjoy your mushroom making and please share them with me. I would love to see your version.
