Chain Chomp hat (From Super Mario Bros.) by Kayla Brink
make a black beanie any black worsted weight yarn - hook size I or bigger crochet for larger hat, smaller for tighter hat- i like to make my hats BIG. teeth hook j or I , chain hook H , need yarn needle for sewing --- if you have a beanie or hat pattern you like already, make what you are comfortable with, this pattern is just a basic beanie worked in the round.
start off with magic ring, 7 sc in ring - place marker (i like stitching in the round)
rd 1: 2 sc in each sc around. (14 sc) move marker
rd2: 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc. repeat (21 sc)
rd 3: 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 2 sc. repeat (28 sc)
rd 4: 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 3 sc. repeat (35 sc)
rd 5: 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 4 sc. repeat (42 sc)------yeah this gets boring about here.

rd 7: 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 6 sc. repeat (56 sc) ---------BIG JUMP
rd 8: 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 13 sc. repeat (60 sc)
rd 9: 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 14 sc. repeat (64 sc)
rd 10: 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 15 sc. repeat (68 sc)
rd 11: 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 16 sc. repeat (72 sc)
rd 12: 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 17 sc. repeat (76 sc)
rd 13: 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 18 sc. repeat (80 sc)
rd 14 thru 30: sc in each sc around (move marker) until desired length of hat. (WARNING: teeth take up a bit of space, so to make sure you can still SEE please do not make hat TOO large)
Slip stitch into last stitch. when you get to the end fasten off.
we need about 4 teeth across on top row
in front of hat, sl st white into any sc with hat opening facing you , sc in sl st space
sc 36 across
ch 1 turn; each 9 sc = one tooth
i wanted to make them tight so i did each tooth separatly
sc in next 9 sc - ch 1 turn
sc 1, sc2tog, sc 1 , sc2tog, sc1, sc2tog: ch 1 turn
sc 1,sc2tog, sc 1 sc 2 tog, ch 1 turn
sc 1, sc2tog, sc 1, ch 1 turn
sc1 sc2tog ch 1 turn
sc2tog - fasten off
sl st into stitch adjacent to last tooth, repeat tooth pattern.
continue for 2 more teeth.
**I didn't do this step on my sisters hat... but you could if you would like to make it true to the photo**(Do bottom row of teeth; there is 5 teeth)
slst into back of hat
sc in next 35 spaces
*ch 1 turn, sc in 1st sc, hdc in next sc, dc in next sc, trc in next st, dc in next st, hdc in next sc, sc in next sc* : make 1 small tooth
repeat from * 4 more times than fasten off
Chain in silver/grey: make at 7 links of chain - make base separate from hat and attach by whip stitching on.
start with chain 20 of grey with size H hook.
slip stitch to 1st chain to connect.
*crochet 35 sc around the chain (you do not have to go in the stitch) make sure to slide them on tight
slip stitch in beginning sc and fasten off
start next chain link by chaining 20 - then slip stitch into 1st chain to connect them, when you do this, make sure you contain the other chain link in this new link
becareful not to TWIST the link when you are crocheting around
repeat from * of last step - sl stitch and fasten off,
do 5 more times.
Base of chain: Silver:
start with magic ring, 6 sc in ring - pull closed
rd 1: 2 sc in each sc - (12 sc)

rd7: sc in each st around (30 sc) sl st into 1st sc of row: fasten off
slip stitch to back of hat - use some polyfill to stuff and keep shape.
make chain to attach chainlink - this i kinda "winged it".
Insert last link of chain through yarn (so now your chain is dangling on your yarn)
sl st into base around 3rd row of base
chain 10 and make sure link of chain is within the chain before sl st"ing" back into base to create half link.
ch 1, turn and sc each stitch back then into base and fasten off.
Eyes: get two pieces of white and black felt, make a circle and whip stitch on - see picture for placement.
