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!)

Top view. The shark is eating his brains. Cheesy~



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! Cheesy

You did a GREAT job making it up as you went along, it turned out just right.  Your bf certainly looks like it's much appreciated!

Wow. I saw shark hat, and I thought, maybe an intarsia shark or something, but this is way beyond anything I could even think of. This is pretty much the cleverest hat I've seen in a really long time.
