Working with newborn photographers, I rely on them for some of my designs. They request something and I go to work designing something new. But, when I got the call that they had a client who was a dentist and they really wanted a hat that looked like a Sweet Tooth, I was a little puzzled.
I love the creativity with this request but was not sure how to make a hat look like a tooth. But, after putting some creative touches on a flour sack hat, including some earflaps-or roots, it came together perfectly.
Sweet Tooth Hat Design takes Off
As darling as this photo turned out, I thought, there aren’t very many people who are really going to buy this pattern or purchase a tooth hat. Boy, was I ever wrong.
I listed the hat for sale in my Etsy shop to see if there was any interest. (side note: I no longer sale the finished product). I was receiving requests for up to a dozen hats for one person! I had to inquire and it turns out, it was a dentist office that was buying them for their clients.
Who would have thought? I was making Sweet Tooth hats by the dozen nearly every night of the week.
Sweet Tooth Crochet PATTERN
I was receiving so many orders, I was sending some of the orders to my pattern testers because I didn’t have the time to make them. This is when I realized, I had to release a pattern.
The pattern includes instructions not just for newborns but up to adults! You bet, a dentist or two ordered a hat for themselves for Halloween.
Materials Needed to make the hat
- Hook Size J (6.00 mm)
- Hook Size G (4.00 mm)
- Worsted Weight Yarn ~ 60-130 yards depending on size made
- Yarn Needle
Where to get the pattern
