Must-Have Mini CAL 2 - Chanterelle
The chanterelle pattern is probably my personal favorite. The shape and color of this one are so pretty… and tasty on top of that!
Make yourself a handful of these cuties with their flowy caps and feel free to change up the length of the stem. There’s no need to stuff these, so that’s nice and easy.
What will you make with your chanterelles? An omelet, maybe? Show us, and share your photo on social media using #MustHaveMiniCAL.
015 Mustard en 014 Sunflower
Make a MR using 014. Sc 4 in MR.
Round 1: *sc 2 in same st* x 4 (8)
Round 2 - 11: sc 8 around
Switch to color 015 and cut the strand of 014, leaving a tail of approx. 4”
Round 12: *sc 2 in every st* x 8 (16)
Round 13: *sc 1, sc 2 in next st* x 8 (24)
Round 14: sc 24 around
Round 15: *sc 2, sc 2 in next st* x 8 (32)
Round 16: sc 32 around
Fasten off, cut the yarn and weave in all ends.
There is now a little hole near the stem, on top of the chanterelle. Close this with the tail you left of 014 by picking up 4 sts on the inside of the stem (pick up 1 st, skip 1 st, pick up 1 st, skip 1, etc.).
Pull the yarn tight and tie a knot with the cast on tail of 015. Weave both ends in the stem.
The chanterelles are not stuffed.
Fold the cap of the chanterelle in its typical, flowy shape.
Vary the length of the stem and ‘snap’ some for a realistic look.
Use the same pattern as you did for the large chanterelle, but make a shorter stem by working up until round 7. After that, skip to making the cap as you did in round 12 for the large chanterelle.
When making the cap, skip round 16 of the large chanterelle.
You can use all of both colors in this pattern. We won’t be using them again in the CAL.
