I made this hat for my son - he wanted a mean shark. I saw the dead fish hat pattern and loved the idea - I just varied the pattern quite a lot to make different looking species. And felted it so it looks like it jumped out of the water and landed on his head

I basically cast 90 stitches onto a size 9 circular needle and winged it from there. I used Patons wool and it felted great.

Thanks! The teeth are actually fleece - I sewed in a fleece liner and let it hang out about an inch past the mouth... then I just cut a zig zag for teeth. I tried to knit teeth, but they didn't look right. I wanted them to be all wonky like a real shark! And the eyes are buttons btw...

This is the funniest hat I've ever seen, and I'm so jealous that I am not even half as talented as you and won't be able to make one for my little brother who is obsessed with sharks and the mischievous little boy on the planet (I kid you not!)

Great job  Grin
