FREE TOOTH FAIRY CROCHET PATTERN – Sweet Tooth Buddy
This sweet little molar tooth amigurumi can be made just as a cute cuddly toy or display item, or be used as a tooth fairy buddy. Instructions for a tooth/coin pocket is included.
I have used Bulky (UK chunky) Acrylic yarn and 5mm hook to make a tooth fairy buddy measuring approximately 16cm/6.5 inches tall, with a pocket large enough to fit a 50pence coin (approx. 3.5cm). You can change the size of the tooth by using different yarn weights. The exact gauge is not important. Use a hook size a little smaller than the recommended for yarn size, to keep the stitches fairly tight so that it holds the shape better.
The tooth is made from the top down, crocheting all the pieces together without having to sew any seams.
You will need
Chunky/Bulky White acrylic yarn for the tooth (less than 100g used)
A small amount of Black, Pink or chosen colours for the face.
Toy stuffing (Polyester fibre filling)
Yarn needle & scissors
Optional: Pink chalk pastel dust or blush make up and cotton bud for the rosy cheeks.
Stitches/terms used in this pattern
(mr) Magic ring
(sc) Single crochet
(inc) Increase – 2sc in same st
(dec) Decrease (invisible)
Invisible join – Technique used for fastening off at the end of rounds. Cut yarn, pull end up through the middle of last stitch, use your yarn needle to thread the tail end through under the first st of round, and back through the middle of the last stitch, pull tight to touch the first and last stitch of round. Secure the end by weaving into the back of work and cut off excess.
Numbers shown in ( ) indicates the number of stitches you should have at the end of the row/round.

Tops – Free tooth fairy crochet pattern
We will start with making 4 slightly domed tops and then join them together. Work these pieces in continuous rounds using a stitch marker to keep your first stitch. Using White yarn, start with a magic ring,
R1. sc x5 into mr, pull closed (5)
R2. inc in each st (10)
R3. *sc, inc, * repeat between * a total of 5 times (15)
R4. *sc x2, inc, * repeat between * a total of 5 times (20)
R5. *sc x3, inc, * repeat between * a total of 5 times (25)
Fasten off with an invisible join. You will have a step down from the last stitch to the first stitch, this lower stitch is the first stitch used when joining. Repeat to make 4 tops.
Centre piece – Free tooth fairy crochet pattern
We will now work the Centre Piece and join the 4 tops together.
Start with a magic ring,

R2. ch1, inc x8, sl st into first sc to join, turn to work along the wrong side for the joining stage (16)

ch1, hook through the first st of the centre piece from the wrong side and the first st of one of the tops from the right side, sc the 2 pieces together, sc x3 along both pieces, take another top piece and sc x4 along the centre and new top piece to join, repeat to join the other 2 top pieces, sl st into the first sc to join. The wrong sides of all pieces should be facing up when joined. Now join the sides of the tops, rotate to work along the 2 touching tops above the working stitch. Match up the stitches, ch1 and sc x4 along both pieces to join, fasten off and weave in ends. Re-join yarn to the middle piece at the base point of where 2 tops meet and sc x4 along both pieces to join, fasten off and weave in ends for 2 more sides.
Repeat for the last side but do not fasten off, continue onto the Main Piece.

Start stuffing the tooth here, fill firmly leaving a little room along the top.
I have used crocheted eyes on mine to ensure this is safe for use around young children. If you want to use safety eyes, you should insert them here.
Now we need to reposition to centre our starting stitch.
sc x2 or until you are visibly level with the middle of the 2 tops below, before continuing with the Bottom.

Face – Free tooth fairy crochet pattern
Make 2 eyes by using Black yarn or any eye colour you want, make a magic ring and sc x6 into mr, pull closed, sl st into the first sc and fasten off leaving a long tail. Use your yarn needle to attach by whip stitching around each eye into your desired position on one side of your tooth. You can add highlights by adding a small stitch of White yarn onto the eyes.
Use your yarn needle and a length of Pink, Red or Black yarn to stitch on a little smile.
I have used some chalk pastel dust to dab on some pink blushing cheeks with a cotton bud. You can use real cheek blush to add colour, or keep it without.
To make your little tooth Amigurumi into a tooth fairy buddy, add a pocket to the back to hold the lost tooth and coin reward.
Pocket – Free tooth fairy crochet pattern
Work in continuous rounds. Start with a magic ring,
R1. sc x6 into mr, pull closed (6)

R3. *sc, inc,* repeat 5 more times (18)
Work sc x5 and sl st into next st (this straightens off the top off pocket). Cut yarn leaving a long tail for attaching and
