Mushie Fun with the Mushroom Moon Wall Hanging Free Crochet Pattern
I think it was back in January that I said “this year will be big for mushrooms” and you know what, I meant it. I’ve been thinking on ways to make more mushroom designs and after the hit that my Mushroom Reflections Wall Hanging was, I’ve been itching to make another colorful mushroom design. So… say hello to the new Mushroom Moon Wall Hanging 😀
For this wall hanging I wanted to go in a more “witchy” direction when it comes to my mushrooms. I’ve been thinking of Halloween (shocking, I know) and that’s really influenced a lot of what I’m making right now. I’ve got so many ideas on how to incorporate Halloween vibes into my work and a moon just seemed right. Like entry “witchy” and fun, if that makes sense. I don’t know… it makes sense to me. Also mushrooms and moons just seem to go well together IMO.
So yeah, I thought not too long but still pretty hard on this design. I wanted the witchy vibes mixed with mushrooms to feel like something I’d be happy showing off. And then I added a some stars on the body of the piece to add a little personality. I think they look great, don’t you?
I’ve said it before, but when it comes to color work you should do what works the best for you. I used bobbins for this particular pattern 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. But I firmly believe that anyone can make a color work project like this, you just need to know how to make a single crochet 🙂 Oh, and a little bit of steam blocking will help straighten your piece right up.
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 is often icky 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.
Anyway, I hope you like this pattern and give it a try. Please wear and wash your masks and be kind to each other.

I need to know just how small this graph is going to be, after I print it out. It looks so tiny & my eyes are not what they used to be. I need to know if it’ll print almost the whole 8 1/2 x 11 page, or will it print in sections, then have to tape them together. Would be nice if you could let me know by e-mail. I do love your patterns. Thanks, Didi
Honestly I don’t know, but I’d check the print preview and see how it looks 🙂
