Mushrooms free crochet patterns (boletus and leccinum aurantiacum)

Today I'd like to share my crochet patterns of 3 mushrooms with you, my dear friends. If you have kids they will be happy to play with them and if not you can use the crochet mushrooms to decor your kitchen. As to my daughter, she was surprised to get the muchrooms and started playing with them as if she was cooking a soupe. So I advise you to try it and you will have some fun. :)


You'll need 3 mm crochet hook, off-white, dark brown, red wool blend or acrylic yarn (300m/100g) and also holofiber, gray and black sewing threads, a sewing needle and sewing pins.

Small boletus

It consists of 2 details: a dark brown cap and an off-white stem.

Stem

1 round: 6 sc
2 round: 6 inc (12 sc)
3 round: 6 inc (18 sc)
4 round: 3 inc (21 sc)
5-7 rounds:  21 sc
8 round: 3 dec (18 sc)
9 round: 3 dec (15 sc)
10 round: 3 dec (12 sc)
11 round: 12 sc
Fill the stem with holofiber and hide the end of the thread inside it.


Cap
1 round: 6 sc
2 round: 6 inc (12 sc)
3 round: 3 inc (15 sc)
4 round: 3 inc (18 sc)
5-6 rounds:  18 sc
Cut the thread off and fasten it with a slip stitch.
Smooth the last slip st. making 2-3 stitches with a sewing thread on it and after it don't cut the sewing thread off, because you will use it to sew the cap to the stem.

Now put the cap on the stem and fasten it with sewing pins. Sew the details together moving by round.
Stitch the stem with gray and black sewing threads and the little boletus is ready! :)

Stem

1 round: 6 sc
2 round: 6 inc (12 sc)
3 round: 6 inc (18 sc)
4 round: 3 inc (21 sc)
5-10 rounds:  21 sc
11 round: 1 dec (20 sc)
12 round: 2 dec (18 sc)
13 round: 6 inc (24 sc)
14 round: 6 inc (30 sc)
15 round: 6 inc (36 sc)
16 round: 6 inc (42 sc)
Cut the thread off and fill the stem with holofiber.
 Cap
1 round: 6 sc
2 round: 6 inc (12 sc)
3 round: 6 inc (18 sc)
4 round: 6 inc (24 sc)
5 round: 6 inc (30 sc)
6 round: 6 inc (36 sc)
7 round: 6 inc (42 sc)

Don't cut the brown thread, we will use it to join the cap and the stem together. For it make another round of sc's, taking one half of sc on the stem and another  half of sc on the cap.

Stop when you have got a hole about 4-5 cm and fill the cap with holofiber. After it go on crocheting.

Finish the round with a slip stitch, cut the thread off and hide it inside the mushroom.

Stitch the stem with gray and black sewing threads.
