Mushroom Walk Scarf Day 9 – We found one!

Welcome to Day 9 of our Mushroom Walk scarf crochet-along… it’s the penultimate day and our scarves are nearly finished! 😃🍄

And today is the one we’ve been waiting for. 😃 We started our walk hoping to find a fairy-tale fungus, the classic red and white picture book worthy mushroom… and yay, we found one! 😃🍄

So today we crochet a Fly Agaric mushroom…

Seeing these beautiful mushrooms out in the wild is really wonderful and certainly stops you in your tracks…

I haven’t managed to see any this year yet, but last year on the walk which inspired this scarf, we were amazed at how many Fly Agaric mushrooms we spotted…

Creating the classic mushroom in crochet was fun… just like yesterday we crochet our mushroom upside down so that when we wear our scarf it sits the correct way up!

Yesterday’s round-up of photos shared in the Facebook Group and Instagram were once again a joy to see…

And for those of you who have purchased the printer friendly pattern on Ravelry it has now been updated to include Day 9: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mushroom-walk-scarf

It’s been an amazing crochet-along journey and I can’t wait to see some of your scarves finished… but remember to crochet along at your own pace…😄

So let’s get crocheting…

Day 9

We found one!

Yay! We spotted a fairy tale mushroom… the Fly Agaric looking splendid in amongst the undergrowth.
