Magical Little Toadstool
For some reason I find little spotted mushrooms very charming. Maybe it’s because I’ve never seen one in real life, but they’re common in illustrated fairy tales. To me they represent a land of enchantment where fairies are hiding just behind the next mossy tree. When I saw this pattern I decided to crochet one. The only problem being that I’m not very good at crochet and every time I do it I have to look at books to refresh my memory of how to do the stitches. Which is why it wasn’t too surprising to me when I thought mine wasn’t going to turn out right. It mostly did, though the cap isn’t as domed as the one in the pattern picture.
I even learned how to do a french knot to make the spots!
