Materials
Size H/5mm crochet hook
4 ply yarn
Tapestry Needle



Continual Round - Instead of joining, insert your hook below the two loops at the top of the first stitch to work the first stitch of the next round.  The purpose of the continual round is to eliminate a a seam that will occur with joining rounds.


Single Crochet Decrease
Put your hook through the first stitch, wrap the yarn over the hook and pull it through.  Leave the two loops on your hook.  Put your hook through the next stitch, wrap the yarn over and pull it through.  There are 3 loops on your hook.  Wrap the yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.  This is joining two stitches down to one stitch.


Mushroom Stem 1
Chain 3 join.
Round 1:  Work 6 single crochet through the chain.  I am working around the chain. I find this makes a neater appearance.  You can work through the chain if you prefer. Do not join.  Work through the top of the first stitch for the continual round.
Round 2: Work 2 single crochet in each stitch around. (12 Single Crochet Total)
Round 3 - 12: 1 single crochet in each stitch around. (12 Single Crochet Total)  


To end the round and even it off, work a slip stitch in the next stitch.





Mushroom Stem 2
Chain 3 join.
Round 1:  Work 6 single crochet through the chain.  I am working around the chain. I find this makes a neater appearance.  You can work through the chain if you prefer. Do not join.  Work through the top of the first stitch for the continual round.
Round 2: Work 2 single crochet in each stitch around. (12 Single Crochet Total)
Round 3: *Work 1 single crochet in the next stitch, work 2 single crochet in the next stitch. Continue around to the beginning from *  (18 Single Crochet Total) 
Round 4: Work 1 SC in each stitch around  (18 Single Crochet Total) 
Round 5: *Work 1 SC, Work a single crochet decrease. (See above for single crochet decrease details) (12 Single Crochet Total)

Round 4: *Work 1 SC, in the next stitch work 2 SC, continue around ( 24 single crochet total)
Round 5-7: Work 1 SC in each stitch around  (24 single crochet total) 
Round 8:  *Work 1 single crochet in each of the next 2 stitches, work a single crochet decrease, repeat around.  ( 18 single crochet total)
Round 9: *Work 1 single crochet in each of the next 7 stitches, work a single crochet decrease. Complete a total of 2 times from *. (16 single crochet total)  Work a slip stitch in the next stitch.


Sew in all the tails.  


Chain
Work a chain of 125-150 or  you can work the long twisted rope.  Sew and secure the chain/twist to one side of the mushroom stem at the top of the stem.  Insert your crochet hook through round 3/4 of the mushroom from the top to the inside, wrap the chain/twist over the hook and pull it through.  Inside your hook from the bottom side of the mushroom to the top, between round 3/4, wrap the chain/twist over your hook and pull it through.  Pull the chain down so it does not pull back through.  Lower the mushroom top over the stem to make sure it looks even.  Once it looks even, sew the chain/twist to the opposite side of the mushroom. Sew in all the tails.
