My inspiration for this project was based entirely on fashiondiva's creation at Cut Out + Keep found here. I dug around for cute & easy crocheted beanie and decided to follow this pattern but kept the rounds going amigurumi style instead of joining as suggested.
|*4 dc into one st, sk, sl st, sk* repeat for scalloping|
To the beanie pattern I added a scallop edging in white for teeth front and back. I fastened white sc chains made into loops as eyes.
|back of hat has teeth, too|
Grey sc chains made into loops attached at the tippy top are his chain (gotta have one broken chain at the end to show that he's OFF HIS CHAIN - WATCH OUT!)
It turned out a bit big for a 9-year-old head but did get some use and perhaps his brains will grow into it in the coming years.
Thanks to my ☺adorable☺ model you can see just how large it turned out with a G hook and WW yarn.
I'll post the my other Nintendo Super Mario Bros crocheted projects soon!
