I gave up Christmas knitting a long time ago because I found it far too stressful, particularly at a time of year that is already subject to loads of extra stress.
This year I’m making a small exception, just for these...
Crochet amigurumi Mario Bros mushrooms!
I’m making them as a set of Christmas tree decorations for a friend of mine, who has a bit of a fetish for all things to do with old-school gaming.
It’s my first go at amigurumi, and I was surprised at how easy it was?! Just round and round double crochet, and a bit of counting. I’ll definitely be having a go at more patterns now!
If you’d like to have a go at your own set, you can find the super-helpful, well written pattern here.
and yes, I do know this isn't the specific "1-UP" 'shroom...I just couldn't resist the title :)
