Free Poisonous Mushroom Amigurumi Crochet Ornament Pattern

It’s September, and you know what this means! The Halloween tree is officially back up!!! I already have some adorable Halloween ornaments from last year, but I wanted to make something new to add a little colour to my tree this year.

After months of fiddling with this pattern and making constant minor adjustments, I’m finally happy with this pattern! In fact, I love this little mushroom so much that I decided to make it in 3 different colours!

My favourite colour combo is the pink one. It looks like it belongs on some alien planet and I think the colour combination is interesting and unique!

Yarn I Used

I used WeCrochet Shine Sport Yarn for this ornament; however, you can use any yarn as long as you correspond your hook to the weight of your yarn.

Colours I used: For the pink mushroom, I used Cosmopolitan, Platinum, and Green Apple. For the violet mushroom, I used Crocus, Willow, and Dandelion. And for the deep purple mushroom, I used Iris, Cream, and Sweet Potato.

For each mushroom, I used roughly 4g of the Cap colour, 4g of the Stem colour, and a little bit of accent colour. Each skein is about 50g.

It’s currently out of stock on their site, so if you don’t already own this yarn, you can substitute with any sport weight soft cotton yarn. This is a great stash buster project to use up any leftover yarn you have lying around. 



Gauge

5 Round Circle = 1.5” with a 2.75mm hook

Gauge isn’t super important for amigurumi, but I included it just in case you want to check your gauge. Being a little off should not affect the final product too much. You can learn more about how to measure gauge for amigurumi here!

Embroidery Details

  • With a long strand of Sweet Potato yarn on the darning needle, thread the needle in one of the gaps between rounds 10 & 11 of the Stem. There will be 6 gaps and we will be working into all 6 of them. We will be calling these gaps the “base gaps”.
  • Trace a line up along the stitch to where the Stem and the Cap meet and thread the needle out through that spot. To make it easier for me to refer to, I’ll be calling these the “outer gaps”.

  • Pull your needle through to hide the tail, then insert your needle back into the same base gap to create your first line. Count two sts from your first outer gap, this is your next outer gap. Pull the needle out the next outside gap.
  • Repeat until you have 3 gill lines coming out of your first base gap.

  • Thread the tail through and out between rounds 3 and 4 of the Cap to set up for the embroidery of the dots.

  • Start by embroidering in the first four dots on round 4 of the Cap (pictured in orange below). Make sure to go over each dot twice so that it creates a bumpier texture.

  • For the second layer, you’ll be embroidering 4 dots in on round 6 (pictured in green). Making sure to space them out between the first four dots evenly. For the third layer, embroider 4 dots on round 8 (pictured in blue), spacing them out between the 2nd layer of dots.
