Do not cut threat, we will now continue with the first root
Tooth roots (4x)
Before starting with the first root, sc 3. This will make sure you’ll start in the middle (when looking from front view). The next 4 roots are made in groups of 12 stitches. Repeat the following 4 times:
Round 18: 12sc, slip stitch in first sc (12)
Round 19: 12sc (12)
Round 20: 10sc, dec (11)
Round 21: 11sc (11)
Round 22: 9sc, dec (10)
Round 23: 8sc, dec (9)
Round 24: 7sc, dec (8)
Round 25: 6sc, dec (7)
Round 26: 5sc, dec (6)
Round 27: 4sc, dec (5)
Stuff the tooth firmly. Rejoin and decrease around till you have a small gap left. Use a needle to go through all the remaining loops, this will close the gap.
Cut two small rounds of black felt and two smaller rounds of white felt. Glue the white round on the black one and glue it on the tooth. Cut a short piece of black yarn and glue it below the eyes. If you are giving the tooth to a child, better use safety eyes and sew the mouth with a needle.
