Happy June friends! It’s one of my favorite times of year to design for. I love having a theme to make something for but especially when the theme includes rainbows! I love a good rainbow, as you know, and this month’s new Pride design is the ‘Shroom For Everyone Wall Hanging, because I also love a good mushroom.
Like last year’s Rainbow Cactus Wall Hanging that I designed for Pride, I wanted to design a rainbow that means something more. Something with a deeper meaning, like how tough cacti are and how that represents the queer community’s toughness. And this year, I went with a favorite – the mushroom. This is because mushrooms are special, they’re not plants or animals they’re a wide variety of fungi that exist independently but also are closely related to both. Mushrooms can be poisons, they can be edible, they can be all wild and gnarly looking or cute with little caps, or bight or plain… but they’re all accepted and they’re all mushrooms. Maybe I’m over thinking this but mushrooms are hearty, they grow everywhere. They’re special.
Now with this post, to make sure it’s big on the “‘Shrooms For Everyone” I decided to include color-coded instructions below in the post. They’re in photos after the graph, so if you don’t see them make sure your ad block is off and refresh your browser tab. I think the colors really help to make it easier to make the design. And like all my wall hanging patterns, this design is easily made using bobbins (keeping the yarn attached to the skein as you work it).
I don’t like cutting yarn until I absolutely have to, so bobbins are the way to go, I also use floats if there’s only a couple stitches to work across.
Anyway, I hope this new design. All the proceeds from my Rainbow patterns will be donated to the Trevor Project and Trans Lifeline for the month of June. Please remember, the first Pride was a riot, not a corporate money grab. So support your community, wear and wash your masks, and be kind to yourself and others.
Please note: I was provided the yarn for this pattern by We Crochet for the purposes of designing and used it for the ‘Shroom For Everyone Wall Hanging, without compensation. I wasn’t provided the yarn with the expectations of positive or negative reviews but I’ve used Brava Worsted for most of my wall hangings and I love it.

‘Shroom For Everyone Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern Written Instructions
In keeping with the theme of “shroom for everyone” I decided to share this design in color-coded form below, pages 1 – 4 from left to right. I do hope you consider sharing this page (not the pattern itself but a link) or buying the pdf on Ravelry.
Sew your wooden dowel or stick to your wall hanging (or sc into the last row across if you’d like).
For the hanger, ch 80 with color A and tie the ends to the first and last sts on the final row of the wall hanging.
I added pieces of fringe to the other side of Row 1 in colors that matched the colors on Row 1, although I broke up the black fringe section with some brown fringe.
