Mushroom Walk Day 10 – Mushroom Memories!

And that’s a wrap! Yes, after this part, our scarves will be ready to wrap right around ourselves for some cosy comfort on any walk outdoors, especially a Mushroom Walk! 😉😅🍄🍄🍄

Welcome to Day 10, the final part of my Mushroom Walk scarf crochet along!

Mushroom memories is what I’m calling this final part of the walk… Our walk comes to an end and we head back home… what a glorious walk it’s been but we have the memories to cherish…

Not only did we spot many beautiful mushrooms, we also enjoyed the simple pleasures of being out and about in nature.

And as for crocheting along together, that’s been a complete joy… here are the round-up grids from yesterday of photos shared in the Facebook Group and Instagram

Now I’d like to say a few thank yous…

A huge THANK YOU must go to my family, especially my husband Steve. ❤️ Whenever I’m immersed in a crochet-along inevitably there are other things in my life which might get neglected. There are only so many hours in a day! 😆 Steve is always there to pave the way for me to move forwards each day as well as picking up any pieces left behind me! 😄 I’m eternally grateful for all his support – I simply wouldn’t be able to do what I do without him!

BIG thanks must also go to my friends Ruth and Liz who tested the pattern for me… here are their finished scarves…

Ruth from Labours of Love Crochet

Thank you to Iris from Een Mooi Gebaar for translating the pattern into Dutch… 🇳🇱

And of course a HUGE HUGE thank you must go to all of YOU! 🥰 Whether you’ve been crocheting along, purchased the pattern, shared a progress photo, answered someone’s question in the Facebook Group, encouraged someone else, shown kindness, spread the word and got someone else to join in, silently crocheted along behind the scenes (I know you’re there and I appreciate you!) or simply followed along and supported me but not actually crocheted… THANK YOU all!

The Coastal Crochet community that has built up around my designs is a happy place for all I hope… I certainly feel the love and am beyond grateful to each and every one of you!

So let’s move onto our final part…

Filet crochet has been a feature throughout this scarf. I love filet crochet! It provides a lacy fabric through the simple stitches, with nice drape which is perfect for a scarf. It also gives us the opportunity to add subtle patterns and personalisations to our scarf.

We started with boots and a shawl in Day 1, we then had a tree in Day 4, words in crochet for Day 7 and today we just had to end with filet crochet mushrooms! Three to be precise…

Three simple filet crochet mushroom silhouettes… I love them and feel they are the perfect end for our mushroom walk scarf…

For those of you who have purchased the printer friendly pattern on Ravelry it has now been updated to include Day 10: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mushroom-walk-scarf

Let’s get crocheting!! 😄

Day 10

Mushroom Memories!

Our walk comes to an end and we head back home… what a glorious walk it’s been. Not only did we spot many beautiful mushrooms, we also enjoyed the simple pleasures of being out and about in nature. Let’s do it again next year… or maybe even tomorrow!

We crochet our beautiful mushroom design upside down because when wearing the scarf, they will then appear the correct way up – it’s all about those finer details!

See Day 1 for all the abbreviations. The pattern in US terms is at the bottom of this webpage.

Row 236 (WS) Keep WS facing and go back to beginning of Row 235, join Yarn J into 4th ch of first 5 ch made in Row 235, 3ch (counts as first tr), 1tr in first ch-sp, (1ch, miss next st, 1tr in next ch-sp) until final ch-sp, 1tr in final st, re-join with Yarn I at final yoh of last st, do not fasten off Yarn J but continue with Yarn I in Row 237, turn. [26 sts and 23 ch-sps]

Row 237 (RS) 3ch (counts as first tr), 1tr in each st and ch-sp across to end, fasten off but do not cut Yarn I. Fasten off by bringing the ball of yarn through the final loop and leave it attached ready to be re-joined later. [49 sts]

Row 238 (RS) Keep RS facing and go back to beginning of Row 237, re-join Yarn J into top of 3 ch made at beginning of Row 237, 5ch (counts as 1 tr and 2 ch), miss 2 sts, 1tr in next st, (2ch, miss 2 sts, 1tr in next st) to end, re-join with Yarn I at final yoh of last st, do not fasten off Yarn J but continue with Yarn I in Row 239, turn. [17 sts and 16 ch-sps]

Row 239 (WS) 3ch (counts as first tr), (2tr in next ch-sp, 1tr in next st) to end (pay attention to crochet into the 3rd ch of first 5 ch which is the last st), turn. [49 sts]

Row 240 (RS) 1ch (does not count as st), 1dc in first st and each st to end, re-join with Yarn J at final yoh of last st, fasten off Yarn I, turn. [49 sts]

Rows 241 – 259 uses the technique of Filet Crochet in which a combination of spaces or blocks will create a mushroom pattern. There is a full written pattern below but you can also follow the chart in which each square represents either a space or block.

Each row begins with 3 ch which counts as the first st. After the beginning 3 ch of each row: 

White squares are a space: 1ch, miss next st or ch-sp, 1tr in next st.

Black squares are a block: 1tr in next st or ch-sp, 1tr in next st.

The mushrooms are crocheted upside down because when wearing the scarf they will then appear the correct way up – it’s all about the finer details!

The pattern this time is not symmetrical so when reading the chart read all odd numbered rows from left to right and all even numbered rows from right to left. This will be reversed if you are left-handed. 

Row 241 (WS) 4ch (counts as first tr and 1 ch here and throughout), miss next st, 1tr in next st, (1ch, miss next st, 1tr in next st) to end, turn. [25 sts and 24 ch-sps]

Row 242 (RS) 4ch, miss next ch-sp, 1tr in next st, (1ch, miss next ch-sp, 1tr in next st) to end (the final st to crochet into is the 3rd ch of the beginning 4 ch made at start of previous row – each row will end like this), turn.

Row 243 (WS) 4ch, miss next ch-sp, 1tr in next st, (1ch, miss next ch-sp, 1tr in next st) 8 times, (1tr in next ch-sp, 1tr in next st) 3 times, (1ch, miss next ch-sp, 1tr in next st) 12 times, turn.

Row 260 (RS) 3ch (counts as first tr), 1tr in each ch-sp and st across to end, do not fasten off. [49 sts]

We now crochet a simple side edge to our scarf to help neaten those edges and provide a little stability.

Side Edging

The two long side edges of the scarf are crocheted around. Keeping RS facing, rotate the scarf ready to crochet all the way back down the whole long side edge of the scarf. Work dc stitches evenly spaced across the long side edge of the scarf working into the sides of the rows. Change colours to correspond with the same colour used in each part of the scarf. At end of the side edge fasten off.

Keeping RS facing rotate scarf and join yarn to bottom of opposite long side edge of scarf. Repeat above for the next long side edge working dc stitches evenly across side edge and changing colours corresponding to the colour used in each part of scarf, at end of side edge, fasten off and weave in all ends.

And that’s our scarf complete!! Enjoy it… it’s cosy! Thank you so so much if you’re reading this… it’s been a joy to share this pattern with you all.

Happy crocheting everyone… 🥰❤️ xxx
