Pattern Description:

Say Hello to PAUL the toadstool!

PAUL was not born nor he was simply grown like any other mushroom - he was conjured up by a little witch! Not only because of that you could say that PAUL is literally a kind of "magic mushroom". He's a real natural talent and the only magician in the world who can drag himself out of the hat and remain in absolute stillness for days. PAUL gained his greatest success when he managed to disappear Atlantis, the famous time machine and the meaning of life - unfortunately he forgot the spell to fetch them again, so many people are looking for them until now.

PAUL is approximately 12 inches tall. He is made out of cosy 4 ply sockwool, cotton wool and love. For your little mushroom you can use every yarn you prefer - he's getting taller or smaller but he's always really cute!

I wrote this crochet pattern for beginners too and I tried to be very detailed in my descriptions. I also included a lot of photos and some charts to explain how to and what to do.
