Vampire Fanged Smiley Face Character Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern

So I’m a bit of a geek. Okay a lot of geek, but proud of it. :D  I love smiley faces or emoticons and I am mildly obsessed with vampires so it seemed like a good fit to smash them together in one fun hat.  I liked how this turned out so well I made it my official blood draw hat to wear when getting my bloodwork, which happens way too much with my health issues but how can you not smile when you are wearing this hat?
