Free Mushroom plant crochet pattern

Crochet your own mushroom plant following this cute free crochet pattern!

Welcome back to my crochet blog for another free crochet pattern. 
This week I went out of the box and designed a little mushroom plant. 
This pattern might look complicated but I promise it is super easy for even beginners to try, that is looking for a little more of a challenge. 

I made this Mushroom plant with Kismet Raeesah 100% DK cotton yarn and a 2.5mm crochet hook.

I purchased this yarn from The Wool Shoppe here in South Africa.

This pattern used less than 80g of yarn so it’s also a fun project to make if you have some left over yarn laying around somewhere.

 The mushroom body, leaves and pot is all one piece without sewing, the cap, spots and arms are sewn on afterwards.

crochet mushroom pattern

Eye highlight, Use a thick double-knit cotton and loop a stitch tight against the outer corner of your safety eye. Tip: Use a little bit of clear craft glue to glue the white stitch against the eye to prevent it from slipping over the eye.

Cheeks: Make a short pink stitch under each eye.

Mouth: Make a little V shape with black embroidery thread between the two eyes, one round below them to create the little mouth.

And you are done! I hope you enjoyed making this crochet mushroom plant as much as I did!
