crochet has become a bit of an obsession – join me in the madness!

One Piece Toadstool

This pattern is for a mushroom or toadstool with a ribbed underneath to represent the gills. They are made in one piece, starting at the base of the stem and working upwards with instructions for two different shapes of top (one shown as a mushroom and the other as a toadstool here). The only sewing involved is for the white spots on the toadstool.

What you will need:

*Red, brown and cream or white yarn and a suitable sized hook (I have used DK yarn with a 4mm hook making the finished toadstool ~10cm tall). Gauge is not important as the finished mushroom/toadstool will vary in size with type of yarn/size of hook and tightness of crocheting.

*Stuffing

*A stitch marker

*A yarn needle for sewing on the white toadstool spots

Techniques/stitches used:

Magic ring, slip stitch, double crochet, half treble, treble, changing colour.

Instructions are included for both left and right-handed crocheters.

Fully illustrated, detailed instructions for these are available for £1 (that’s about $1.61 at the time of writing). You can either buy now via paypal or purchase through Ravelry:

If you have any questions or want any help with this project you can email me at cultofcrochet@gmail.com and I’ll have plenty more free patterns soon so do keep checking back.

    This is the cutest toadstool i have ever seen and i am begging my daughter who crochets to please make me one for Christmas!

    Since she wants a certain knitted white dove, and she doesn’t knit, I do have bargaining power!

    Just had to write and let you know I just love the toadstool and if there was ever anything to persuade me to crochet – it would be your toadstool!

      Thank you very much! Making someone want to learn to crochet must be the highest praise you can get I think.

      They’re very quick to make up so I’m sure your daughter could manage a few in time for Christmas ;)
