Mushroom Dolls · Free Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

by - December 08, 2021


Being the woodland and fairytale enthusiast that I am, I decided to crochet an adorable pair of mushroom dolls.  Please meet Baby Toadstool and Mr. Mushroom! 

Baby Toadstool is a really sweet, little humanoid doll with a mushroom cap.  He's shy and enjoys sniffing out the flowers in shady forest spots.  If you see him in the woods, it's best to leave him be instead of plucking him up from his habitat and taking a photo of him! (As I am wrongfully demonstrating here!)


Mr. Mushroom is a cute chunkster who has a voluptuous body and a small mushroom cap.  His mushroom cap is actually smaller than Baby Toadstool's!  He enjoys traveling over dirt paths to scavenge for yummy goodies in and around the forest floor.  


Both of these mushroom dolls are crocheted completely in one piece, except for the arms.  Since you only need to sew the two arms on, there is minimal sewing for this project.  The white speckled spots on the red mushroom cap are created through my heart-shaped color change technique, which I find to be an easy and fun way to add some visual detail into my projects. 

Baby Toadstool's pattern is FREE to view on my blog!  Scroll down to the crochet pattern section to learn how to make him.

Intro:

The Baby Toadstool and Mister Mushroom patterns are made almost completely in one piece. Their nearly no-sew design requires sewing for only the two arms. Both mushrooms have white speckles on their red cap surfaces.  The Baby Toadstool has an adorable chibi body shape that fits perfectly in a palm for extra cuteness, while Mr. Mushroom has a more chubby, fungi shape. This project comes with a sweet flower pattern too! Crochet this miniature set as a sweet gift for fairytale and woodland lovers. It can be made into a keychain or charm, and is easily customizable with different yarn colors and appliques.

Important Note (Read Before Beginning): 

The mushroom dolls are made mostly in one piece. The only sewing involved is for the arms. Do not fasten off until instructed to do so.


ARMS (x2) 

Note: Arms are made using the i-cord technique

Use cream-colored yarn to set up the i-cord: Ch 3. Insert hook into 2nd ch from hook, YO, pull up a loop, insert hook into next ch, YO, and pull up a loop. (3 loops on hook)

R1: Drop 2 loops from hook but hold onto them tightly with your non-hook hand so they don’t come undone. YO, pull through loop on hook. Insert hook in 1st dropped loop, YO, pull through. (2 loops on hook.) Insert hook into 2nd dropped loop, YO, and pull through. (3 loops on hook)

R2-R5: Repeat R1.

To finish, YO and pull through all 3 loops on hook. Fasten off with a tail for sewing to the body.


LEGS (x2)

Use cream-colored yarn.

R1: In a MR, insert 6 sc. Pull the ring tight. (6)
