Amigurumi mushrooms - Crocheted mushrooms. Made by Grietje and found on grietjekarwietje .

This project is crocheted in a spiral formation. The magic ring or adjustable ring technique is a way to get the initial round very tight, with no center hole. Alternately, you could chain 3, slip stitch into the first chain, then sc 6 into the loop to create round one.

materials:

  • red yarn
  • white yarn
  • crochet hook
  • yarn needle
  • polyfil
  • ribbon

Start with white and make a chain of 4 single crochets (sc) = 4 sc.

The Stem:

Round 1: using the “adjustable ring” method and WHITE yarn
make 6 single crochet (sc) = 6 sc
Round 2: increase 1 sc in each sc. =12 sc
Round 3: *1 sc, 2 sc in next sc, repeat from *. = 18 sc
Round 4: 1 sc in each sc. = 18 sc
Round 5: 1 sc in each sc. = 18 sc
Round 6: *1 sc, sc next 2 sc together (1 dec), repeat from*. = 12 sc
Round 7: 1 sc in each sc. = 12 sc
Round 8: 1 sc in each sc. = 12 sc
Round 9: 1 sc in each sc. = 12 sc
Round 10: 2 sc, 1 dec, 4 sc, 1 dec, 2 sc. = 10 sc.
Round 11: 1 sc in each sc. = 10 sc
Round 12: *3 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc, repeat from *, ending with 2 sc in last sc. = 25 sc
Round 13: 1 sc in each sc. = 25 sc
Round 14: *2 sc in next sc, 4 sc, repeat from *. = 30 sc
Round 15: 1 sc in each sc, join red in last sc.
Round 16: *2 sc in next sc, 4 sc, repeat from *. = 36 sc

The Cap:

Round 1: using the “adjustable ring” method and RED yarn
make 6 single crochet (sc) = 6 sc
Round 2: increase 1 sc in each sc. =12 sc
Round 3: *1 sc, 2 sc in next sc, repeat from *. = 18 sc
Round 4: *1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc, repeat from *. = 27 sc
Round 5: 1 sc in each sc. = 27 sc
Round 6: *2 sc in next sc, sc 2, repeat from *. = 36 sc
Round 7: *2 sc in next sc, sc 2, repeat from *. = 48 sc
Round 8: 1 sc in each sc. = 48 sc
Round 9: *sc 5, dec 1, repeat from *, ending with 6 sc. = 42 sc
fasten off.

Assemble the Mushroom: fill the white part firmly and the cap lightly and hook the first and second together.
The small opening that you have left, you pull through and pull it together. I made small dots ​​with a flat pitch but you can of course give it larger dots as well.
Finished!

Maybe you want to make a little mushroom, for example to use as a key chain?

Start with white, use a magic ring. Leave a long tail for sewing the dots on the cap.
6 sc in the ring.
2 sc in each (12 sts)
Crochet all (12 sts)
Crochet all (12 sts)
Crochet all (12 sts)
Crochet all (12 sts)
Crochet all (12 sts)
Decrease the first and second together (6 sts)
Start with red. 2 sc, in each sc around (12 sts)
1 sc, 2 sc in next sc , repeat 6 times (18 sts)
2 sc, 2 sc in next sc, repeat 6 times (24 sts)
Crochet all (24 sts) Only the loops on the back.
2 sc, dec 1 , repeat 6 times (18 sts)
Crochet all (18 sts)
1 sc, dec1 , repeat 6 times (12 sts)
Crochet all (12 sts) Fill the mushroom lightly.
Crochet the first and second together (6 sts) bind off and weave in loose end.
Grab the long tail under the mushroom and go to the mushroom cap, embroidery a first dot somewhere in the middle of the red cap. It will keep the mushroom in shape. If you've made plenty of dots ... you're ready^_^

If you made one of these mushrooms, Grietje would very much like to know about it! Send her an email if you like.
