I don’t know about you, but I love mushrooms! In omelettes, salads, and pies… When I don’t eat them, I like to make them with my hook and yarn. They don’t end up in my plate, but they make very cute decorative items such as ornaments, and keychains.

Today I am sharing my pattern to make cute little ones. For this project you will need:
– scraps of beige and red yarn (or colors of your choice)
– light brown and off white felt
– fiberfill for stuffing
– glue gun, or fabric glue
– yarn needle

IMG_6064

The size of the mushroom is approximatively 3 inches, crocheted with a 2.75mm hook (the larger the size of the hook, the larger your mushroom will be).

PATTERN

Stem:
With beige yarn, make a magic ring
Rnd 1: 5 sc in the center of the ring (5)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around (10)
Rnd 3: [1 sc, inc] 5 times (15)
Rnd 4: blo, sc in each st around (15)
Rnd 5: [5 sc, dec] 2 times, 1 sc (13)
Rnd 6: sc in each st around (13)
Optional: I put a little piece of cardboard at the bottom to keep it flat
Rnd 7: [4 sc, dec] 2 times, 1 sc (11)
Rnd 8 to 9: sc in each st around (11)
Rnd 10: [3 sc, dec] 2 times, 1 sc (9)
rnd 11 to 13: sc in each st around (9)
Rnd 14: ch 3, 2 tr in same st, 3 tr in each st around, join to first tr (26)
Fasten off, and stuff your stem with fiberfill. Cut a circle in a piece of light brown felt, a little smaller than the circumference of your last row. Glue it on your mushroom then resume your work.

Cap:
With red yarn, make a magic ring
Rnd 1: 5 sc in the center of the ring (5)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around (10)
Rnd 3: [1 sc, inc] 5 times (15)
Rnd 4: [2 sc, inc] 5 times (20)
Rnd 5: [3 sc, inc] 5 times (25)
Rnd 6: inc, 24 sc (26)
Rnd 7 to 8: sc in each st around (26)
Rnd 9: flo, sc in each st around (26)
Fasten off, and leave a long tail for sewing. Insert your remaining thread on the other side of the cap to start embroidering. Sew around using the stitches underneath the cap and front loops of the stem. You can add stuffing half way through the sewing, but don’t stuff too much or the bottom of the cap will not be flat. Fasten off, and hide your loose threads by embroidering them within stitches.

 

Voila! your mushroom is done. You can hook a chain to it, or a piece of yarn if you just want to turn it into an ornament. I hope you enjoyed this pattern, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask me in the comments section of this page.

This burger is about 2 x 2.5 inches, can be used as an decorative ornament, keychain or a food toy for a little girl’s kitchen set.

It’s almost Thanksgiving, turkey, stuffing and gravy, mash potatoes, cranberry sauce, and pies!  This is the time of the year when we forget about our diets, and just enjoy food until new year commitments. Here is an alternative that will distract you from guilty cravings, a non-edible pumpkin pie! As usual, this pattern is easy to make, a cute decoration for Thanksgiving, and it will take you less time than to bake a real one.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to make this crocheted apple, or amigurumi apple. Let me add that of all the apple patterns out there, only mine is certified organic! 😉

apple_finish

Materials:
– Red yarn/medium
– Brown yarn/medium

(use a stitch marker – safety pin or piece of yarn – to place at the end of your rows)

Abbreviations:
sc = single crochet
st = stitch(es)
rep = repeat
inc = increase
dec = decrease

BALL:
Rnd 1:  make a chain with 2 stitches, 6 sc in second stitch from chain (6)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around (12)
Rnd 3: 1 sc, 1 inc, rep 6 times (18)
Rnd 4: 2 sc, 1 inc, rep 6 times (24)
Rnd 5: 3 sc, 1 inc, rep 6 times (30)
Rnd 6 to 11: sc in each st around (30)
Rnd 12: 3 sc, 1 dec, rep 6 times (24)
Rnd 13: 2 sc, 1 dec, rep 6 times (18)  Start stuffing
Rnd 14: sc in each st around (18)
Rnd 15: 1 sc, 1 dec, rep 6 times (12) Finish stuffing
Rnd 16:  dec in each st around (6)

Fasten off, with a needle thread, weave in the 6 remaining stitches and pull tight to close. hide the remaining thread in the ball. (this side is the bottom of the apple)

apple_thread

Now, take a long piece of red yarn and needle, insert  it from the top of the apple to the bottom, weave it back to the top, pull both thread to make the bottom go inward, and make a tight knot.  Weave the yarn back into the bottom the same way, pull, and make a another knot. This will give your apple its shape.

STEM – with brown yarn
Rnd 1:  make a chain with 7 stitches (make sure to leave a long thread)
Rnd 2:  6 slip st, fasten off.

Use the threads to attach the steam to the apple. weave the remaining yarn in the apple, and cut.

apple_stem

 Leaves:
Just take a piece of green felt, cut into leaves shapes, one big and one small.  Glue to the top with a glue gun, or fabric glue.

If you want to make this really fun, you can glue some goggly eyes and make a mouth with a yarn thread. This one was made with safety  eyes, which you would pin before finishing the ball.
