Cute little mushroom knitting pattern

Regular readers will know, I just love knitting itsy bitsy little things. Mushrooms are one of my favorites (here are some Chanterelles, a Porcini and here a Fly Agaric). Some of these patterns I posted on my Instagram page are awfully complicated. That’s why I decided to upload a much simpler little mushroom today.

The story behind this mushroom knitting pattern

Originally these mushrooms were a little birthday present for my father. We went to Venice and saw these handblown glass mushrooms, but the shop was closed every time we passed by. He was quite sad and really seemed to want them. I tried to shop them online, but couldn’t find a way. So, I did what I do best: knitting. You can’t imagine how surprised he was when he saw them.

I have knitted quite a couple of them ever since because they look just amazing under a little cloche on my windowsill. Actually, everyone that sees them asks me where I got these because they are just so cute.

They are not all that hard to knit, but you need to know how to knit in the round with double-pointed needles. They are also quite a bit fiddly because I knit them with 2 mm needles (size 0). There is one round where you increase from 16 stitches to 96, but other than that, the pattern is easily accessible for intermediate knitters.

You’ll find detailed step by step (video) instructions for all the techniques used in this pattern here on my blog (and I linked everything in the pattern). So, I hope this pattern is as accessible as it gets. Also, you can knit them with bigger needles as a start as well.

I hope you enjoy this cute little mushroom pattern. Feel free to comment with your questions and make sure to tag my on social media if you post pictures!!

  1. Oh my! These are way too cute! Not sure I can knit them. Never knitted with 2.00 mm nerdles, but I’ll give it a try… thank you for the free pattern. Lara

  2. My husband is hunting mushrooms like a madman this summer. Not to be judgmental, he probably thinks the same when he sees me knitting, lol. Iโ€™ll knit some of these for his upcoming bday. Thx for the inspiration!

    • Hey Debby,

      I am not sure of the problem here. I mean, you get a pdf and you can click on print, no? Can you be a little bit more specific?

  3. Like Eleanor, I don’t see a place to download the pattern if you are already a subscriber, which I am. How do I get the pattern?

  4. The first mushroom was a little wonky. Still it looked good. I have since made 2 more. Your pattern is easy to follow. Thanks.
