Monster Mushroom Crochet Doll Tutorial

January 2, 2012
In: Crochet

After I made my daughter a rubber crochet ducky, my son got jealous and requested a monster. We’ve been playing Super Mario on our Wii, so I was inspired by the mushrooms when I designed this monster.

Well, as usual, I’m happy to share. So here goes:

Materials

  • 1 ball worsted weight orange yarn (MC)
  • a small amount of yellow (CC), white and black yarn for the legs, eyes and mouth (weight of your choice)
  • 4-4.5 mm hook
  • fiberfill stuffing

Notes

  • Gauge is not important for this project, use the size hook appropriate for the yarn you chose.
  • The stitches should be tight so that the filling doesn’t show through the holes.
  • All the pieces are worked in continuous rounds, do not turn or join. Place a marker in the last stitch to indicate the end of the round. Move marker up as each round is completed.
  • My tip for attaching the pieces: first attach with a contrasting yarn, without securing the ends. After you are happy with the placing, secure the pieces with the right color yarn. This will minimize mistakes and give a more professional final look.

Abbreviations

  • ch – chain
  • sc – single crochet
  • st – stitch
  • idec – invisible decrease. Instructions for this can be found here .
  • [ … ] – repeat instructions in [ ] as many times as specified.
