Toothless Hat Pattern

I loved this hat from the beginning, but was amazed at Christmas at how much my brothers loved this adorable toothless hat.

My younger brother has told me that he loves it so much he has to sleep in it. And my older brother wanted one of his own.


I created this pattern after seeing other toothless hats online, but this is my version.

I start with a black version of repeatcrafterme's base hat. You can get the base hat pattern here.
I do the border in black as well
Taking 3 1yd strands of black and 4 1yd strands of green and white per side I slip them through the bottom of the flats and braid them.

Assembly

First I like to sew my eyes together.
-First sew the black onto the green.
-Then sew the white on the edge of the black but still on the green.

Then I line everything onto the hat until I am satisfied with the arrangement. 
*The spikes and ears are sewn on as flat pieces so fold them in half and sew the bottom of each piece where it attaches to the hat.*
Using safety pins I attach the pieces where I want them and then one by one remove the safety pins when sewing the pieces on.


Hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I have! As always let me know of any problems in my pattern, I'm the only one who has used it.

  6. I'm currently making this for my niece! I have increased the size of the ears to better reflect the characteristics of Toothless. I added am increase to 30 stitches, then 3 rows of 30, decrease to 24, & continued on. I also have made the eyes one piece, & will slip stitch them on with the colors rather than stitching them all together and having 3 layers.
