Are you ready to work on a fun crochet project? I have a special free corner-to-corner crochet pattern for you. With this free Mario Mushroom C2C crochet pattern, you can create a fun pillow to decorate your game room. It is a fairly simple pattern for anyone familiar with the C2C crochet technique.

I grew up playing Mario, so I knew I had to create something special. I wanted a Mario Mushroom design but couldn't find a pattern that matched what I envisioned. So, I took out my graph paper and a pencil and came up with this Mario Mushroom C2C crochet pattern. I hope you all love it as much as I do.

Now, I'm happy to share the free Mario Mushroom crochet pattern with all of you!

What is C2C Crochet?

Corner-to-corner (C2C) crochet is a popular technique used to create diagonal patterns that resemble a series of small tiles. This technique involves working in diagonal rows, starting at one corner of your project and building toward the opposite corner.

Each row is made up of small tiles or blocks, which are worked in a particular stitch pattern and then joined to the previous row. The result is a textured and visually interesting fabric that can be used to make a variety of projects, such as blankets, scarves, and even garments. C2C crochet is a versatile and fun technique that is popular with crocheters of all skill levels.

How to C2C Crochet for Beginners

To complete the Happy Smiling Face Emoji crochet pattern, previous C2C crochet knowledge does come in handy. But it is not necessary. I was able to get started quickly and learned a lot by watching the video from Lovable Loops. She even gives you a free C2C crochet pattern of a dog you can try first.

Pierre the Penguin Crochet Kit by the Woobles

I learned with their Penguin Crochet Kit. I looked at it for so long. Each time, I tried to talk myself out of it. I can’t do it. There’s no way I will learn how to crochet from a kit. Blah Blah Blah. If you are negative, like me, you understand.

Do not wait. I was seriously able to sit down and learn how to crochet using this amazing kit. It teaches you everything from holding the yard, how to hold a crochet hook, and reading crochet patterns. Included with the kit is a link to the most helpful how-to crochet videos I have ever seen.

Mario Mushroom Free C2C Crochet Pattern Notes

This free Mario Mushroom crochet pattern is worked using the Corner to Corner (C2C) technique.  I have included a printable graph along with written instructions.

• Difficulty: Advanced Beginner

• Gauge: I am a very tight crocheter. Luckily, the gauge is not very important for this free Smiling Face crochet C2C pattern. My C2C blankets end up being about 6x6 blocks per 4 inches. I think most crocheters get 5x5 blocks per 4 inches.

• Dimensions: ***Please see gauge notes.*** My C2C pillow cover fits a 12” pillow form.

To complete, you will need:

  • Worsted Yarn (white)

  • Worsted Yarn (red) for Super Mushroom

  • Worsted Yarn (black)

  • Worsted Yarn (cream)

  • Size H-I Crochet Hook

o I used Boye Crochet Hook G - 4.25mm (to SC edges together)

  • Stitch Markers

  • Yarn Bobbins (optional)

o I mostly used handmade yarn bobbins, but finally broke down and purchased Yarnology Yarn Bobbins.

  • Yarn Needle

  • Scissors

  • Red Buttons

I have written the following instructions based on the way I learned how to follow C2C crochet patterns. I start at the bottom right-hand corner, and my first block is worked down. I know this is different than what some other people have learned.

I have added an arrow on the free Mario Mushroom C2C graphgan pattern showing you which direction to work in using the written instructions. If you follow graphgan patterns in a different direction, feel free to work directly from the graph, or work the rows backward.

Adding the Buttonhole Band on the Top Edge

SC = Single Crochet (US)

Mushroom Mario Crochet Patterns Free C2C

Row 1: Join yarn with a slip stitch into the upper left corner of R1 and work (approximately) 45 SC evenly spaced stitches along the long edge. Turn your work.

This number worked for me. If you end up with less or more, you will just need to do a little math to make your buttonholes evenly spaced.

Row 2: Chain 1, SC in each stitch across; turn (45 stitches)

Row 3: Chain 1, SC in each stitch across; turn (45 stitches)

Row 4: Chain 1, 1 SC in first 9 stitches, Chain 3 (skip next 3 stitches), 1 SC in next 9 SC, Chain 3 (skip next 3 stitches) x 1 SC in next 9 SC, Chain 3 (skip next 3 stitches), 9 SC in last 9 stitches; turn. (45 stitches)

Row 5: Chain 1, 1 SC all the way across (45 stitches).

Cut yarn and fasten off.

Weave in all your ends.


***When joining the edges, it's important to have the cover inside out. I typically fit my pillow cover with the right side out first, so I can see where the back flap will end. Once the cover is finished, you want the top flap to be over the bottom section.***

Mushroom Mario Crochet Patterns Free C2C
1st fitting with right side out. Notice where the top flap should lay.

Position the pillow insert within your completed C2C pillow cover, ensuring the wrong side is out. Fold the ends over to the rear, ensuring that the Smiley Face is perfectly centered on the front side of the pillow. Once you have it positioned perfectly, secure the sides with pins to hold it in place. Make sure that when you flip the cover right side out, the top flap will be over the bottom piece.

This is how the back should look when wrong-side is out.

Now, use single crochet stitches down both sides of the pillow to close the sides. I used a smaller hook (4.25 mm) to do this. It makes it easier to work the stitches through both layers of fabric.

After you finish joining the sides of the pillow, flip the C2C pillow cover right side out. Then, insert your pillow form and determine where the buttons need to be sewn on. Mark the spots using your stitch markers. Remove the pillow and sew the buttons on.

Finally, insert your pillow, button up the cover, and enjoy your completed project.
