Cute lil' Tooth Crochet Pattern


The Cute lil' Tooth!
This little guy is another one of those "amis by accident". I was working my own Tiny Totoro pattern tonight and dropped one on the floor and it looked like a tooth laying there. So you know what happened next, yup, I had to make a tooth pattern.
You can also use these as keychains.






How to read the rows:
Each row has a sequence as given below. Example: 1sc then 2sc in next st means repeat that sequence 1sc then 2sc in next st followed by 1sc then 2sc in next st over and over to the end of that particular row. The number inside the parentheses ( ~ ) is the number of stitches you should have at the end of that particular row.
Add in a marker at the end of row 2 and move that marker at the end of every row.

Supplies:

worsted weight yarn
4.0 mm hook
blunt end yarn needle for sewing
scissors
100% polyester stuffing
4.5mm eyes. Instead of safety eyes you can use paint or sewing thread.
A small amount of thread for the mouth

Abbreviations:

st = stitch
sc = single crochet
2tog = crochet 2 stitches together
f/o = finish off

Tooth starting at the body working toward the roots:
1) magic circle with 6sc (6)
2) 2sc in each  st (12)
3) 1sc in next 3st then 2sc in next st (15)
4-5) 1sc in each st for 2 rows
6) 1sc in next 3st then 2tog (12)
7-8) 1sc in each st for 2 rows
You can stuff the body now or wait until the one root is on. You can also add in the eyes now, in between the 4th and 5th row. Just be aware of centering since you will be dividing the body into 2 sections and you want that divide to be right in the center of the eyes.

Now we'll make the roots: (see photos below)

sl st across into the 6th st from the hook. This has created 2 sections. Continue around in the right section with 1sc in next 6st for 3 rows (skip over the sl st). For the 4th and final row of the root put 1sc in every 2nd st then sl st into any front loop and f/o, pulling tight. Gently carry the yarn tail down through the root and into the body to hide it. Reshape the root by pulling on the tip to get it back into shape.
Before starting the 2nd root be sure to stuff the body. I used the back end of a pencil to push the stuffing in.No need to stuff the roots.






2nd root:
Insert yarn into the corner then put 1sc in the next 5st. Next pull back the 1st root so it's out of the way and put in 1sc into the corner of the 1st root right in front of where you inserted the yarn to start the 2nd root. You now have 6st in the first row. Now put 1sc in each of those 6st for 2 more rows. Finish off with the 4th and final row just as you did for the first root.
