Mushroom Square Pattern
*I use Red Heart Super Saver yarn, and a K hook for the square, and an F hook for the spots.
With K hook:
Rnd 1) With Red: Ch 2, work 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Jn with sl st in first sc. (6 sc)
Rnd 2) Ch 1, 2 sc in same st and each st around. Jn with a sl st in first sc. (12 sc)
Rnd 3) Ch 1, 2 sc in same st, sc in next st, (2sc, sc) 3 more times, 2sc in next st, then switch your color to white, sc in the next st, 2sc, sc in the last st. Jn with a sl st in first sc. (18 sc)
Rnd 4) Still working with white: Ch 1, turn. 2sc in same st as join. Sc, sc, 2sc, sc, sc. Switch to Red. (2sc, sc, sc) around to end. Jn with sl st in first sc. (24 sc)
Rnd 5) Still working with Red, Ch 1, turn. 2sc in same st as join. sc, sc, sc, (2sc, sc, sc, sc) 3 times, 2sc in next st, sc in next st, switch to white. Sc in next 2 sts, 2sc, sc in last 3 sts. Jn with sl st in first sc. (30 sc)
Rnd 6) Turn work and begin with background color, not in the same st as join, but beginning in the next st. Sc one in this st with the background color and then switch back to white. With white, sc in next 4 st, 2sc, sc, then switch to background color again and work one single crochet in the next st, then switch to Red. Sc in next 2 sts, 2sc in next st. (Sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st) 4 times. Jn with a sl st in first sc. Fasten off Red. (36 sc)
Rnd 7) Turn work. Work in the back loops only in this round to make your mushroom appear a little more 3 dimensional! Your mushroom should now be right-side-up. Jn your background color with a sl st in the same st as the ending join in Rnd 6. This should be a background color stitch that you’re joining it to. Ch 1, hdc in same st. In next st create your first corner, (2dc, ch 2, 2dc), hdc in next 8 sts. Repeat from * 3 more times except leave one hdc off of very last 8 sts, so do 7 sts instead of 8. Jn with a sl st in first hdc.
Rnd 8) Ch 1, sc in same st and around, and in each corner work 3 sc. Jn with a sl st in first sc. Fasten off and weave in ends.
*Remember to use an F hook for the circles.
Rnd 1) Ch 2, 6sc in 2nd ch from hook. Jn w/a sl st in first sc. (6 sc)
Rnd 2) Ch 1, 2sc in same st and around. Jn w a sl st in first sc. Fastn off leaving tail long enough to sew spot to mushroom. (12 sc)
Sew spots to mushroom and stitch one some eyes.
