This pattern is available from for $6.00.

Please note, this listing includes two patterns:

  • Mushroom Collection is the base pattern linked here (photos 1-4)
  • Mushroom Variations is the optional Expansion Pack modifications (photos 5-10), and is available for additional cost. Please keep reading for further explanation!

Mushroom Collection (photos 1-4 ONLY in this listing) includes 6 different realistic mushroom designs (3 domed and 3 flat), perfectly shaped, with gills hidden under the caps and a crisp colour change between cap and gills. All the mushrooms in this collection use the same techniques, so once you’ve learnt them with your first mushroom, you’ll be able to whip up more in no time!

Choose the shapes and sizes you prefer, or create a mixed arrangement in a variety of shades of white and brown. Pile them in a bowl, arrange them on a window ledge, or add them to a seasonal centrepiece or wreath.

Mushroom Collection is an original crochet pattern by June Gilbank, including patterns for 6 different sizes of realistic mushrooms: 

  • small, medium and large sizes
  • two cap styles for each size: domed and flat

Yarn: worsted weight yarn in one or more shades of brown, white, cream, etc, or any other colour(s) of your choice! (Each mushroom will need approximately 15-35m of yarn, depending on the mushroom style chosen.)

Hook: US E / 3.5mm

Size: 2-4” (5-10cm) tall

Mushroom Variations EXPANSION PACK

The Mushroom Variations Expansion Pack (photos 5-10 in this listing) is available for an additional cost and includes all the modifications required to crochet each of the mushrooms in the Mushroom Collection with any/all of these variations:

  • Red and White: This colour scheme makes beautiful decorative mushrooms (perfect for Christmas!)
  • Short Stem: Especially good for play food – these mushrooms look good enough to eat.
  • No-Sew: A speedy crocheted alternative to the standard needle-stitched finish.
  • No Gills: A quick and easy option – great if you want to whip up a large batch of mushrooms in a hurry.

Yarn: worsted weight yarn in one or more shades of brown, white, cream, etc, or any other colour(s) of your choice! (Each mushroom will need approximately 10-40m of yarn, depending on the mushroom style chosen.)

Hook: US E / 3.5mm

Size: 1.5-4” (4-10cm) tall

What is an Expansion Pack?

  • An Expansion Pack is an add-on to an existing PlanetJune pattern.
  • The Expansion Pack lets you modify or add to the original pattern to create something else.
  • You cannot use the Expansion Pack alone - you must also purchase the original pattern in order to be able to complete the pictured items in the Expansion Pack pattern.

Please join us in the PlanetJune crochet designs group - you can get pattern support, join crochet-alongs, show off your FOs, suggest new designs, and chat. All welcome!

PS - Apologies for any confusion in this listing - tptb have decreed that I can't make a separate pattern listing for the Expansion Pack, so they are both pictured here. Please read the descriptions carefully so you choose the options you want to buy!
