Crochet Popping Mushroom Tutorial

Crochet Popping Mushroom Tutorial

This delightful crocheting project with this free no-sew pattern will let you create an adorable popping mushroom. This pattern is perfect for crafters of all levels who are looking to add a whimsical and interactive touch to their collection. Using chunky yarn for softness and resilience, the popping mushroom is an excellent sensory toy or a cute decorative piece. The process employs basic crochet stitches and techniques, including the magic circle, single crochets, increases, and invisible decreases, making it a fun project without the need for any sewing.

Materials Needed

  • Yarn: Premier Parfait Chunky or similar (Colors: Lagoon for the cap, Cream for the head, and a 15-inch piece of Cream for the head spots)
  • Crochet Hook: 5mm (H size)

Abbreviations Used

  • sc - Single Crochet
  • inc - Increase (2 sc in one stitch)
  • dec - Decrease (sc 2 together)
  • [ ] - Repeat instructions between brackets as directed

Making Process

  1. Cap and Body:
    • Start with a magic circle and work 6 sc into it.
    • Proceed through the rounds by increasing (inc) uniformly to form the mushroom cap shape. The increases will vary per round (e.g., Round 2: inc in every st; Round 3: [1 sc, inc]; etc.).
    • After shaping the cap, add spots using the extra piece of cream yarn by stitching over selected stitches.
    • Perform a color change to cream yarn to begin the mushroom's stalk, incorporating back loop only stitches and decreases to narrow the stalk.
  2. Finishing the Cap:
    • Continue with the cream yarn, focusing on decreasing and working in the back loops to finish shaping the stalk.
    • Add safety eyes between Rounds 15 and 16, ensuring there are two spaces between them.
  3. Stuffing and Closing:
    • Before completing the last round, start stuffing the head portion without overstuffing the cap.
    • Close the opening by decreasing around until you have 6 stitches left, then finish off by weaving in the end through the remaining stitches and pulling tight to close.
  4. Final Touches:
    • Perform a pop test by pushing the stalk into the cap to ensure the mushroom pops as expected. Adjust stuffing if necessary.
    • Optionally, stretch out the cap to adjust its shape or add a keychain for hanging.
