This crochet mushroom is a quick(only 15-20 minutes) and flat little applique that can be added to pretty much any design.

Below, you can see all the relevant details for this pattern and follow along with the written directions. I hope you enjoy!

About This Project

As mentioned above, this mushroom applique design is intended as a cute add-on that you can put on garments, accessories, decor, and pretty much any pattern or project. The finished mushroom is 2.5” across and also 2.5” tall in the given yarn weight. If needed, you could certainly try using a different type of yarn to suit your project, and the size would be proportionately bigger or smaller. 


While it’s not critical, the gauge of this pattern 13 stitches and 6 rows per 4×4” square.

Materials Needed

  •  3 yards of worsted yarn in mushroom color. (Paintbox cotton aran in color “vintage pink” is shown)
  • 2 yard of worsted yarn in dot/stump color (Paintbox recycled cotton in color “string” is shown.)
  • Size G/4.00mm hook.
  • scissors

Pattern Notes

  • This pattern is written using US terms.
  • Turning chains do not count as stitches
  • Pattern repeats are shown in with asterisks
  • When crocheting mushroom, carry colors using tapestry crochet technique

Abbreviations Used

  • BO – make a bobble (sc3, then remove hook from the loop. Carefully insert hook behind the first sc, pick up the dropped loop, and pull it through. Cinch tight.)
  • CH – chain (yarn over, pull loop through)
  • HDC – half double crochet
  • SC-single crochet(insert hook, yarn over, draw up a loop, yarn over, and draw through two loops)

SKill Level

While this is a very quick project, it may be considered more of an intermediate project. This is mainly due to the small bobbles used and the way that the yarn is carried across the rows. Below, you can follow the written directions for this pattern, but if you’d like more help there is also a downloadable pdf with step-by-step pictures and video tutorial available as part of my Crochet Maker’s Vault.
