Did you know that I haven’t released a mushroom design since June? I can’t believe July was mushroom free on my blog. That’s so sad! I mean, I was making this design and getting it ready for release but still… how do I look other mushie enthusiasts in the face? 😉 Ok, I am kidding, I will just keep making mushrooms and hope people don’t get sick of them. Speaking of making more mushrooms, this month’s first pattern is the Mug’Shroom Wall Hanging 😀
I had an image of a cup with mushrooms on it (go figure, my favorite coffee mug has mushrooms on it) in my head for the last couple of months. At first it stared out as a coffee themed piece but when I was sketching it up, I didn’t like how it looked. Maybe I’m losing my coffee mojo and I need actually work on that. I don’t know. But once I added some mushrooms to the cup I knew I was it was something fun. I added the branches and the flowers and I was definitely in love. It might be a big on the busy side, but I love it.
And you know I had to add more fun with fringe that continues the colors used on Row 1 down and some stars to add a bit of “magic” to the whole thing. I added that flower to the bottom of the piece specifically because I wanted to see how it would look in fringe. I was right, I’d love it 😀 But feel free to add more or less fringe as you’d like. It’s totally up to you.
For this wall hanging I mostly used a bobbin technique (keeping the yarn attached to the skein or multiple skeins as the case often is) and made sure to turn the piece back and forth rather than in a circle as I worked the rows. I have a couple Reels on my Instagram that show how I change colors from the front and also the back, so if you’re struggling with changing colors those might help you. And with the branches, I approximated how much yarn I’d need (by counting the stitches and adding some) for their individual lines. That way I didn’t have to carry yarn or use floats in the big sections between the browns. This technique might not work for you, but it works for me.
And keeping with industry standards, if you’d like written instructions to this pattern you can pick those up in my Ravelry shop. I know talking about money makes people uncomfortable but I split up these patterns this way so that people do have an incentive to pick up the pdf, it helps me to keep making patterns here on my blog. I hope you understand.
Overall, I do hope you like this week’s new pattern. I loved making it and deciding on the colors. I spent quite some time playing with the colors before ultimately deciding on the combination I picked here. That’s really one of my favorite parts.
Remember to be kind to yourself and others, and wash your hands and masks.
Please note: I was provided the yarn for this pattern by We Crochet for the purposes of designing the Mug’Shroom Wall Hanging crochet pattern, without compensation. I wasn’t provided the yarn with the expectations of positive or negative reviews but I’ve used Brava Worsted many times for home decor, garments, and whatnot and it’s one of my favorite worsted yarns to use.
