Tapestry Crochet Mushroom Potholder – Free Pattern

After a long break from my Farmhouse Collection, it’s finally time to add a new pattern to it. Here is my tapestry crochet Mushroom Potholder!

Crochet Mushroom Potholder - Raffamusa Designs

A mushroom was way overdue in this farm-inspired collection, and a gentle kick by one of the blog’s readers was exactly what I needed to get at work and finally make one!

This huge tapestry crochet mushroom is exactly what I wanted for my kitchen, and it will look great together with all the fall- and wood-inspired kitchen decor!

PATTERN NOTES

  • The pattern is written in two sections. The Potholder is worked in rows, then the Border is worked in rounds.
  • The potholder is worked entirely in sc.
  • If the pattern says “(A) 5”, it means that with color A, you need to make one single crochet in each of the next 5 stitches.
  • Turn your work at the end of each row.
  • The starting ch 1 counts as your first stitch and is always made with A.
  • All uneven-numbered rows are crocheted on the right side. All even-numbered rows are crocheted on the wrong side.
  • (…) – Repeat the instructions within brackets for the indicated number of times.
  • With the exception of the border, the stitch count is always 45 sts.

Round 1 [RS]. With B, sc 45 on each side of the potholder. At the corners, sc 1 in the last st of the current side, ch 1, and sc 1 in the first st of the next side. Join the round with a sl st into the first st. (45 sts on each side and 1 ch at the corners).

Round 2 [RS]. With A, (sl st 1, ch 1) in each st around including the ch-1 spaces at the corners.

Hanging Loop. Once you are back at the top, left corner, sc 1 in the ch-1 space, ch 20, sc back into the same ch. Turn your work and sc 25 inside the loop you just created. Sl st back into the same ch-1 space, and turn your work.

Fasten off and weave in your ends.
