Autumn is the perfect moment to have a long walk and search for mushrooms and other fall items. These red toadstools with white polka dots are the ultimate goal! Finding them does not have to be that hard. Make one yourself! These crocheted mushrooms are beautiful for the nursery or give a surprising touch to a autumn decorative artwork. We made these mushrooms (which are about 13 and 24 cm tall) with Lana Grossa Cotton Mix 80. This yarn of cotton and acrylic is without a doubt one of the best crochet yarns in our collection.
