Just in time for a Christmas gift, I knit my boyfriend a hat. His favorite animal is sharks, and he is by no means a shy guy, so I decided to go all out, and make him a full shark hat. D: (His idea!)

I didn't use any pattern for this. I did reference World of Knitted Toys by Kath Delamy(sp?) for the shaping of the dorsal fin and the tail, but even they needed massive tweaking due to the size. The decreases were guesswork, but worked out. I made the gums by picking up stitches, and binding them off immediately using smaller needles, and the teeth are white felt.
I can write up a pattern later on, if there's interest. In the meantime, enjoy!
