Every fairy needs a little toadstool to live in
This toadstool is crocheted in the round, amigurumi-style, so a stitch marker is really important to mark the beginning of each round.
You'll make the bottom and the top, decorate each and stitch them together.

I use US terms, so single crochet is the same as UK double crochet here.
Chain (ch)
Single crochet (sc)
Double crochet (dc)
Stitches (sts)
Single Crochet 2 Together (sc2tog)

To Sc2tog:

Insert hook into next stitch.
Yarn over, pull up a loop. (2 loops on hook)
Insert hook into next stitch.
Yarn over, pull up a loop (3 loops on hook)
Yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.
