amigurumi mushrooms!

Recently I've been making super cute amigurumi mushrooms from a free pattern I've found on Ravelry...


I used Lion Brand: Amazing in Wildflowers for all of these. One skein barely covered all three shroomies, but I used a J hook for the tallest one and an H hook for the two smaller ones. I would definitely recommend the H hook or smaller for this pattern.







This is the link to the Ravelry pattern, which is completely free. It works up very quickly. To help the mushrooms stand, instead of the cardboard piece I put a few glass bead/stone things in the bottom. They're still a tad topheavy, but for something that's just going to sit on a shelf, it's not a bad fix. The eyes are simple black plastic eyes I got from Joann's, and I stuffed them with bamboo fiber stuffing also from Joann's.

These are adorable! The variegated colors really suit them.

Thanks! I think so, too. I love Amazing (it's my favorite yarn!) and so I might be biased, but it really does work well for this kind of thing.

Those are so CUTE!

*runs to Ravelry to look at the pattern*

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I have more hats to finish, and scarves (matching, more or less); plus working on a scarf pattern to give to Merle so she can make scarves for the Pulmonary Hypertension fund raising hat-and-scarf project, too. (search on Team PHenomenal Hope for details if you want them)

And THEN I am going to make darling little mushrooms. I think I am going to cut circles of plastic for the bottom, from margarine tub lids or coffee can lids, instead of cardboard. I suspect the plastic will hold up better in the face of hard workingplaying kidlets. I will let you know.

Thanks!!

Sounds like you've got a lot of work to do. I think the plastic would probably work, the only reason I chose beads/stones for the bottom of mine is that they're going to sit on a shelf and needed a litlte bit of extra oomf to keep them upright. They're surprisingly topheavy.
