Mario Brothers Mushrooms

June 27, 2009

These little plushies were requested. They're really quite simple to make, but I have to admit, I had so much fun, I ended up making all those in one day. I love it when something simple and so much fun comes out looking so very cute :)

Mario Mushrooms


WW yarn in white, the colors you need for the tops (varies with the type of mushroom) and a tiny amount of black
G Hook
Yarn Needle for weaving in ends

Notes: Gauge isn't important. Any size hook or yarn works here, but choice of yarn and hook will determine the finished size.

Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round or row indicate the total number of stitches that should be in that round or row.


Beginning at the base with white:

Rnd 1: 8 sc in magic ring (8)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (16)
Rnd 3: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (24)
Rnd 4-7: sc in each sc around f/o white (24)
Rnd 8: Join the main color of the mushroom top, 2 sc in Front Loops Only of each sc crochet around (48)
Rnd 9: (working through both loops now) sc in each sc around (48)
Rnd 10: sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (60)
Rnd 11-13: sc in each sc around (60)
Rnd 14: sc in next 4 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (50)
Rnd 15: sc in each sc around (50)
Rnd 16: sc in next 3 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (40)
Rnd 17: sc in each sc around (40)

Begin stuffing here if you haven't already. It's important to stuff the mushroom fairly firmly, and shape it as you progress.

Rnd 18: sc in next 2 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (30)
Rnd 19: sc in next sc, dec over next 2 sc around (20)
Rnd 20: dec over next 2 sc around (10)

F/O leaving long tail. Using a chopstick or the back side of a large crohet hook, finish stuffing and shape the top. Using yarn needle weave the tail through the last round and pull to close.

Spots (make 5):

Using white (or alternate color):

Rnd 1: 8 sc in magic ring
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (16)

F/O and weave ends in on backside of disk.

Position spots with one centered on the top of the mushroom, and four equally spaced around the sides. Sew on. (I like to use sewing thread for these because it doesn't add any unsightly bulk to the spots)

Using black yarn, choose the face 'area' (between two of the side spots) and make a few whipstitches for each eye.

Using the same pattern you can make very small versions more suitable for phone charms or jewelry. These earrings and pendant I made quite some time back for my girls.

For those, I used a #9 steel crochet hook, and two strands of sewing thread held together (#20 or 30 crochet thread also works great if you have it). Add some jewelry findings and you've got a cute little jewelry set to wear :)

Amazing pattern! I'm so excited making this! I'm new at crocheting and I was curious if it's supposed to curl up at round 10 because I've pulled it out and redone it several times and it curls each time (and i reach a count of 60 sc total before making a full round) can you help me out? thanks so much for the pattern!

January 29, 2010 at 12:08 AM  
Blogger WolfDreamer said...

The curling is what you want, the final shape will become more evident during the stuffing process... remember to stuff it fairly firmly and shape the item as you stuff it. A few trials and errors is always helpful when learning :D

These would be a good first 'in the round' project. Once you establish the basics of the stitches and understanding patterns, I think these would be great to try!

As with all crochet, you always work through both loops unless told to work through front or back loops only.

I'm new to crocheting and I'm not sure what some of the stuff means. What does sc in next 4 sc, dec over next 2 sc around mean?

April 6, 2010 at 7:28 PM  
Blogger WolfDreamer said...

What that means is you work a single crochet in each of the next 4 single crochet stitches of the round, then you work a decrease over the next 2 single crochet. Repeat that sequence around to the beginning of the row.

To learn about working a decrease, you can check this illustrated tutorial http://crochet.about.com/library/bl_decrease.htm :)

Hope that helps!

This is FANTASTIC! :D Your pattern was very easy to follow & I am a brand new crocheter. I saw that it got up to 60 stiches, and I wanted him a little smaller. So cut everything you said in 1/2 (You said 8 stitches, I did 4). His base looked a little small for his head when finished, so I went back and crocheted the base as instructed on your pattern and sewed it onto my smaller top. Perfect, perfect! Check him out! THANK YOU. :)

It means to put a single crochet in each of the next 2 single crochets, and then decrease over the next 2 single crochet (dec=decrease) repeat that sequence around to the end of the round.

To say that I am greatly appreciating your patterns is an understatement!
However I'm a little stuck on this pattern. The bottom just isn't coming out like it shows in the picture. It's much too small and almost disappears into the cap. Do you have any idea what it is that I must be doing wrong?

December 29, 2010 at 2:44 PM  
Blogger WolfDreamer said...

The bottoms of the mushrooms are fairly small in relation to the size of the caps. If it is unstuffed at this point, it will seem almost impossible - but it will shape up after stuffing.

Remember to stuff the bottom firmly to obtain the right shape and be sure to add enough stuffing at the 'junction' of where cap meets stem to prevent any sagging or drooping at that junction. :D

If this doesn't help, you can always add one or two rows to the bottom (stem) of the mushroom to give it more height if you prefer.

Let me know if this helps!

Hi! I love this pattern! I just have a question about sewing on the spots. How did you do that? It seems really awkward for me to try and sew them on. Is there any special way you held it, or how you sewed it on?

July 5, 2011 at 1:58 PM  
Blogger WolfDreamer said...

I used matching sewing thread and a sewing needle. You only need to catch the 'top' layer of the crochet work... there is no need to go all the way underneath the crochet, just catch a reasonable amount on the 'surface' :D Use evenly placed, small stitches, relatively close to each other for a smoother finish.

this might sound dumb, but when i first start, how many chains do i crochet to make a ring? i notice your pattern starts with round 1: 8 sc in magic ring. thanks

July 9, 2011 at 12:07 AM  
Blogger WolfDreamer said...

Magic Ring is really just a term for something I grew up calling a slip-ring :). Some really nice illustrated instructions are here: http://www.planetjune.com/blog/tutorials/magic-ring-right-handed/ (the left-handed instructions are linked at the top if you need those)

If you work better from video tutorials try this one:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHYVutk2iYY">
Hope that helps! It's technique that really does make working in rounds alot easier :)

You can also just simply chain 2, and put the first 8 sc in the second chain from the hook (the first chain you made) both work, but the magic ring makes a cleaner and more consistent starting point than the chain 2 :D

I have a question. I love all your patterns by the way, you are awesome but.. I always seem to come out with significantly bigger things than you (or my one friend also following your pattern). We both made your oddish and hers came out small and round and mine came out huge and oval shaped. I was wondering what I'm doing wrong or how I can fix this? Cause I'm making the stitches as tight as I can. I can't pull the hook through if I make it any tighter. And it seems like some things are to scale and some aren't.. I made your cyndaquil and I had to fold the stripe in several places to have it fit right, and the legs were big, but the rest was fine. I'm so confused. Help?

November 12, 2011 at 9:52 PM  
Blogger WolfDreamer said...

There are many things that can affect how the end results come out.

The brand,type,size,texture of the yarns you are using, the hook you're using (even the same size hook but different brands can result in slightly different sizes) and of course your individual tension.

Yarn is probably the greatest factor in this. A 'worsted' weight yarn from one brand to the next, can be very different in it's texture and 'hand'. Some worsted yarns are softer and crush down more with each stitch and result in a smaller size, while other yarns are firmer and don't crush down as much, with the end result being a larger piece.

One other factor is how you stuff the finished piece. If you stuff firmly, it might end up larger than if you stuff it slightly less. Overstuffing can also change the shape of the pieces.

When it comes to doll making like this, the measurements given are approximate. There are so many factors involved that an 'exact' measurement is nearly impossible. (clothing is of course, a bit different, as there are fewer factors involved and gauge is used as a base)

Even when I make the same doll over again, I won't come out with one the exact same size/dimensions as the one before it. That's why often times I'll mention that you need to fit the pieces as you crochet them, in order to be sure they'll fit... because so many factors can change it.

You can easily adjust pieces to fit as you go... such as with cyndaquils stripe.... sometimes you have to just eyeball things and make fewer stitches here, or more stitches there to get the proper fit.

Since I can't take into account every variable for every crafter, I post the patterns as much as a guideline as an 'exact' pattern. Feel free to make any and all adjustments necessary to make your dolls just like you want them :D

I would just like to say thank you so much for the pattern and inspiration. My daughter is 10 and just loves Mario Bros, so I just had to give these a go - I have made three, with just the blue one to go now.

I am new to crochet and this has been the first pattern I have followed and you have made it so easy.

They make me smile every time I look at them.

Thank you again. Georgie :-)

Hi, I just wanted to leave a comment for you. I love your work. I've made Mario and the mushrooms for a family member and my banker's child, now he has come and asked me if I would make another mushroom for a friend of his families. Thank you again.

I just happened upon your Mario Mushrooms pattern and from there have checked out some of your other stuff, it's amazing! Your very talented, and thank you for sharing your work and patterns for free, that's awesome!!!
I was wondering if you could tell me what size hook (in US sizes) you used for the 4 Mushrooms on the bench?

Thank you!

I'm trying to make a monkey ive looked everywere but,only found 1 monkey that satisfied me and would like to know if you could try it and post the pattern on your page. Here is the website to it so you can take a look at this cute little monkey. Sorry for the bother. Hope you can do this soon.

No, I won't post a pattern for that monkey. That's not my design, and to 'post' a pattern for it would be stealing. The pattern for that monkey is available in an ebook/calendar, available here: http://www.interweavestore.com/Crochet/Patterns/Crochet-Me-Presents-the-2012-Amigurumi-Calendar-Projects-eBook.html.

I only post patterns for dolls when I designed the pattern myself, I don't post other people's patterns, that's a very wrong thing to do.

Dear WolfDreamer,
I think these are so cute! My friends love Mario and I think these will make great gifts for them. Thank you for posting them!

I have a favorite to ask you. My friends are going to Thailand for a mission trip and we are earning money for them this May by having a fundraiser. It is a bake sale, craft sale, ect. I am very crafty (well, both ways;p) and I was wondering if I could have your personal permission to sell these there for my friends. I will not be making any personal profit.

Thank you so much!

How can i make a smaller one? Do you just cut the stiches in 1/2? How about the rounds?

Thanks for making this available

I'm going on a 'shroom bender tonight and tomorrow to start on Christmas gifts and to hold up my end of the deal on a craft exchange for a fellow nerd! My first one came out pretty fugly but the rest are attractive. I'm building an army. I'll share a link when I'm through so you can see the sheer insanity of twenty mushrooms taking over stuff, thanks to you!

Has anyone else had the problem of the cap of their mushroom getting wavy with the decreases? I use the invisible dec. method and it seems to be pinching up and taking a smooth looking (so far) shroom and making it a little wavy :(
