Large 1-UP Mushroom Beanie Pattern

Updated: Nov 26, 2019

Get a life!

It's starting to warm up here, but I'm on a tapestry-crochet-designing spree! One of my favourite things about tapestry crochet is how easy it is to create pixelated images with this technique! As such, I'm creating patterns featuring iconic video game images and characters, and this week is the 1-UP Mushroom from Super Mario!




N.B: Writing my patterns can be quite time consuming and I do my best to make sure they are clear, coherent and easy to follow. Since I provide them for free, I would appreciate it if you could please follow me on Instagram @slipstitch_hollow or on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/slipstitchhollow.Or, you can sign up to my mailing list!

You will need:

  • 6.5mm (K) Hook

  • Chunky weight yarn (5) in White, Black and either Green or Red, depending on what colour you would like your Mushroom - I used the double strand method with Caron Simply Soft.

Before we begin:


In order to make this beanie, you will need to know how to tapestry crochet in back loops only. There is a fantastic video tutorial via ChabePatterns explaining how to do both here:


Actually, with the exception of the first row, the ENTIRE beanie will be crocheted in back loops only.


When changing colours, my instructions will go as follows: "1sc in the next 14 stitches (change to green)" - this means you will change to green on the 14th stitch. The stitch itself will not be green, but the next one will be, so you must switch yarns on that stitch to continue. I hope that made sense.


Additionally, sometimes you will have to change from one colour to another for ONLY ONE STITCH. For example, 14 sc in black, change to white, 1sc in white, change to green. This can get a little fiddly, but be patient!


Rows 1 to 11 are the top of the beanie; from row 12 onwards, we will be creating the mushroom. As we are crocheting from the top down, we will also be working from the top of the mushroom to the bottom. Therefore, as we are making the beanie the image will appear to be upside down!


The left is how it will appear as you crochet, and the right will be the finished project!


Below is a progression of the Mushroom row by row:









Let's get crocheting!
