Let’s go for a mushroom walk… an enchanting walk into the woods, enjoying nature and trying to spot some mushrooms along the way! 🍄
This is a fun one to introduce! I’m really excited to reveal my new crochet scarf design which I’m going to be hosting as a 10 day crochet-along starting on 18th October 2023. Let’s go for a mushroom walk together!
Yarn packs are now available from the Knitting Network:
I used 10 beautiful autumnal colours of Emu Classic DK for my scarf.
The pattern with plenty of step-by-step photos will be available here on my website in 10 daily instalments beginning on 18th October and ending on 27th October.
So it’s a perfectly timed project for autumn and will actually make a wonderful gift for Christmas for those of you who like to plan ahead!
This beautiful card from local artist Onneke provides the perfect introductory backdrop… 🙂

And here you can see my scarf in progress last month…
My colourful, fun and eclectic Mushroom Walk Scarf incorporates a variety of different crochet stitch patterns, all inspired by a wonderful walk amongst the trees to try and see some beautiful fungi, mushrooms and toadstools.
It will be a project that can crochet up relatively quickly, hence the 10 day crochet-along, and the variety of stitches will make it a fun and interesting make. I absolutely loved crocheting it… 🙂
One year ago I went for a walk in the forest and we came across the most beautiful mushrooms! It turned into a little adventure as we realised there were so many stunning mushrooms in all colours, shapes and sizes hidden amongst the trees and on the forest floor. They were impressive!
Some were in direct view, others needed a little more exploration to discover them. We simply loved finding them and then taking beautiful photographs. We left them there in nature for the next person to discover them… 🙂
It was a perfect autumnal walk and inspiration for a new crochet project was firmly planted…
There’s sweet little Salty who came along with us last year…
And one year later this scarf is ready, just in time for the next season of mushroom walks! I’m planning on heading out this weekend to see what I can discover…
Two years ago I designed my Winter Walk Scarf which turned into a wonderful crochet-along. My Mushroom Walk scarf will be a similar journey which I’m very much looking forward to sharing with you all.
The scarf is long enough to wrap right around your neck at least a couple of times… perfect for keeping warm and cosy on an autumnal walk in the woods!
The finished scarf using DK yarn makes a large cosy scarf measuring approximately 260cm x 28cm (102in x 11in). The scarf can be made using other yarns and appropriately sized hook but the finished results may vary. For a smaller scarf you can of course use a thinner 4 ply yarn.
We now have a few weeks to get ready, choose our yarns and plan our projects. I hope that lots of people will crochet-along and join me for this mushroom walk… the more the merrier! 🍄
Happy Crocheting Everyone… 🙂
