Yarn and Needles: To make your mushroom sprite teeny, tiny (about 1.5” high) use Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread Fashion 10 on four U.S. size 00 (1.75mm) double pointed needles (dpns). Be warned, it’s a super thin and finicky combo, so I can understand if want to scale that up a bit.

Fashion 3 and size 1 (2.25 mm) work well too but you can use any type of yarn and appropriately sized needles. You’ll need a main color for the body and a contrasting color to make the mushroom cap.

Extras: Batting, safety eyes, tapestry needle for assembly. Beads, buttons, or embroidery can be used in place of safety eyes.
