Woodland Ornaments – Mushroom

This crochet mushroom ornament is part of the Woodland Ornament Trio, and is quick to make!



  • Worsted weight yarn in light brown and cream colors. For this pattern, for light brown I used Red Heart Super Saver 4 Medium (100% Acrylic, 364 yds) in Cafe Latte, and for cream color I used Big Twist Value 4 Medium (100%) Acrylic, 380 yds) in Cream.
  • US size F crochet hook (3.75 mm)
  • Polyfill
  • Yarn needle
  • Stitch Marker
  • Jute twine (optional, used as ornament string. Can also use yarn)



Sc – Single Crochet

Inc – Increase

Dec – Decrease

Sl St – Slip Stitch

St(s) – Stitch(es)

Blo – Back Loop Only



  • Gauge is not terribly important here as long as you are producing a nice and tight fabric so that the polyfill will not poke through.
  • This pattern is written using US terminology.
  • Unless otherwise noted, pattern is worked up in continuous (spiral) rounds. I recommend using a stitch marker in the first stitch of each round.
  • Size of finished item measures approximately 2.75 inches tall.
  • Please note that I crochet left-handed and my photo guides reflect this. If you crochet right-handed (with your hook in your right hand), all the stitches are the same and will look the same, you will just be working in the opposite direction as I am.


Special Stitches Used 

Increases are made by making 2 single crochet stitches into the same stitch.

Decreases are made by using the invisible decrease method – Insert hook under front loop only of next two stitches, yarn over, draw through first two loops on hook, yarn over, draw through remaining two loops to finish.

Back Loop only – rather than insert your hook into both loops, insert your hook under the back loop only and work the indicated stitch. Need help making a single crochet into the back loop only? Check out this video: https://youtu.be/GiHnfSsg11U

Photo Guide – Mushroom Assembly

Holding mushroom cap in hands, turn inside out.



Locate the center of the mushroom cap, where you made the beginning 6 sc into your magic circle (right).



Place your mushroom stem directly on this center (left), and sew into place using yarn tail (right).



Now flip the mushroom cap down, fasten off and weave in ends.



Photo Guide – Attaching Ornament String

Take a 10 inch piece of jute or yarn and fold in half, making a loop of yarn at the top (left). Pick a stitch in the center of your ornament where you want to attach your string (right).



Insert your hook from the back through to the front of your work, and put the yarn loop over your hook (left). Draw this through the stitch and pull through (right).



Pull the loop through and make it larger (left), pulling the two ends through the loop (right).



Pull the ends to tighten (left). Now tie the two ends into a knot or bow and hang up your mushroom ornament!
