Secure your stitch with a stitch marker.

Crochet the toadstool scales (C2)

Large scales (Make 3)

Rd 1: Dc 6 into a magic ring (6)

Rd 2: 2dc 6 (12)

Rd 3: [dc 1, 2dc 1]*6, sl st 1 (18)

Break yarn leaving an approx. 30cm/12”, pull through.

Small scales (Make 10)

Rd 1: Dc 6 into a magic ring (6)

Rd 2: 2dc 6 (12)

Break yarn leaving an approx. 30cm/12”, pull through.

Sew on the scales

Decide where you want to place the scales on the toadstool’s cap. Pin them in place. Sew them on one by one. Stitch the tail end through the middle of the spot where you want the scale to go, then sew it on all around using the working end. Tie both ends together on the inside of the cap.

Continue with the toadstool where you left off in C1:

Rd 21: Work in back loops only: [dc 18, inv dec 1]*6 (114)

Rd 22: Change colour to C2 in a dc, dc 16, inv dec 1, [dc 17, inv dec 1]*5 (108)

Rd 23: [dc 16, inv dec 1]*6 (102)

Rd 24: [dc 15, inv dec 1]*6 (96)

Rd 31: [dc 8, inv dec 1]*6 (54)

Rd 32: [dc 7, inv dec 1]*6 (48)

Rd 33: Work in front loops only: Dc 48 (48)

Rd 34 to 42: Dc 48 (48)

Rd 43: [dc 7, 2dc 1]*6 (54)

Rd 44 to 52: Dc 54 (54)

Rd 53: [dc 8, 2dc 1]*6 (60)

Rd 54 to 57: Dc 60 (60)

Attach the eyes and embroider the smile

Attach the eyes wherever you would like them to go and embroider the smile with the black embroidery thread. If you’d like to use the toadstool as decoration, I recommend leaving him hollow. This way he stands more securely. In this case make a sl st, break the yarn, pull it through and sew in the end.

If you’d like to turn him into a stuffed toy, fill him with stuffing and continue as follows:

Rd 58: [dc 8, inv dec 1]*6 (54)

Rd 59: [dc 7, inv dec 1]*6 (48)

Rd 60: [dc 6, inv dec 1]*6 (42)

Rd 61: [dc 5, inv dec 1]*6 (36)

Rd 62: [dc 4, inv dec 1]*6 (30)

Rd 63: [dc 3, inv dec 1]*6 (24)

Rd 64: [dc 2, inv dec 1]*6 (18)

Rd 65: [dc 1, inv dec 1]*6 (12)

Rd 66: Inv dec 6 (6)

Break yarn, pull through, sew in end.

And complete is your very own toadstool!
