Power-Up Mushrooms



If you follow me on social media (Facebook / Instagram) then you know that I have a deep love for gaming.  I get a lot of my inspiration from gaming, and as a child of the 80's, I'm bringing it back to my first love for this pattern.  Super Mario Bros!  You don't have to have been born in the 80's to have a love for this franchise.  There are fans of all ages across the globe.

This is an easy, beginner pattern and perfect for those who want to give amigurumi a try for the first time! 



Power Up Types:




Red:      Super Mushroom - Mario grows and can break blocks





Blue:     Mini Mushroom - shrinks Mario, can go through mini pipes.                                                                 








Bee:      Bee Mushroom - allows Mario to fly




Green: 1-Up Mushroom - 1 extra life





Yellow: Mega Mushroom - Mario grows HUGE.  Can run through blocks, enemies and pipes















Pattern Notes:

Gauge is not needed for this piece.  With suggested materials, your mushroom will be approximately 3x3 inches

Repeat stitch pattern between * * 

Stitch count for row will appear between ( ) 

Body and cap are worked in one piece, spots are worked separately and sewn on later 

If you are doing the bee, color rows will be indicated between { } in the pattern.  If you are not doing the bee, follow pattern with the power-up color you have chosen

If you know me, or follow me on social media you'll know that gaming is one of the few things I do as much as I crochet.  Recently, they remastered and released the first 3 Spyro games - and let me tell you, this girl has gotten in her Spyro time.  

A few nights ago, in a complete crochet slump, I spent the night playing the third installment, Spyro: Year of the Dragon - when the inspiration hit me.  I had chased down an Egg Thief.  He bobbed, I weaved (flew off a cliff, it happens).  When i caught him, an adorable baby dragon popped out of the egg.   I knew I needed 1,…

It's officially winter here in New England, and mother nature has come through with that cold air we never seem to get used to.  It's a whopping 11 degrees out currently, and my ears are cold just thinking about it!

For those of you who aren't familiar with a Nor'Easter, consider yourself lucky.  It's a storm that forms off the coast of the North Eastern United States (I'm in the Boston area). Those of us ne…

Some of you may be familiar with Sammy's friend, Tony Smokes (below).  Tony is available as a purchase only pattern on my Etsy Shop.  Both Tony and Sammy came to me in a moment of ... inspiration 😅but it took a while before I put hook to yarn and completed the pattern for Sammy.  I'm so happy I did, and that I get to share this with you all for free.
