After seeing this knitted one http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=301932.0  I HAD to have one.

Problem is I knit too slow and didn't have DPN's so I couldn't follow the fishy pattern that she modified to make the shark.

So instead I crocheted one and here's my results



I added a row of pink single crochets at the bottom for gums, but it doesn't show up too well. The teeth are crocheted as well as the eyes. This isn't felted but it does stay up, though i can wear it with the tail down too Smiley

When it's not being worn it can be folded in half and it looks like a shark toy haha. When it is being worn it kind of reminds me of Victreebell from pokemon, so I might make a victreebell hat in the future...

I plan on putting the pattern for this shark hat on my blog when I get around to writing it >.>



pattern is written and it will be on my blog and on here

Shark hat Pattern!

Materials
~gray yarn
~pink yarn
~white yarn
~some black yarn and an eye color yarn
~I hook for adult size (you will have to figure out the changes for smaller sizes, sorry)
~G hook for teeth
~tapestry or yarn needle for sewing parts on

NOTE: this is worked in Amigurumi style, this means the rounds are not joined and the rounds are a continuous spiral.
This pattern was made by looking at the finished product so it is pretty accurate. May be a bit confusing, and is not tested, this is why it is free.
You may make as many shark hats from this as you like if they are for you or for a gift, but don't sell any hats that you make from this pattern.
Do not try and sell or claim this pattern as your own.

TAIL & BODY

tail fin 1

with grey yarn and I hook ch2
rnd 1: 4 sc in 2nd ch from hook.- 4 stitches
rnd 2: *2 sc in next sc 1 sc in next sc* 2 times- 6 stitches
rnd 3: *2 sc in next sc 1 sc in next 2 scs* 2 times - 8 stitches
rnd 4: *2 sc in next sc 1 sc in next 3 scs* 2 times - 10 stitches
rnd 5: *2 sc in next sc 1 sc in next 4 scs* 2 times - 12 stitches
rnd 6: *2 sc in next sc 1 sc in next 5 scs* 2 times - 14 stitches
rnd 7: 2 sc in each of the next 3 stitches, 1 sc in each of the next 3 stitches, (decrease over next 2 scs) twice

(this part is kind of tricky, i just counted that i did 42 sc's as i went around) counts as about 2.5 rnds

next rnd:(decrease over next 2 scs) twice, 1 sc in next 23 sts
(decrease over next 2 scs) twice, 1 sc in each of next 3 sts, (decrease over next 2 scs) twice, single crochet in next 2 sts, slip st looseley into next stitch and fasten off 8 or 9 sts total

tail fin 2

work as tail fin 1 but DO NOT fasten off at the end!

another tricky part to explain:
join the tail fins to make the complete tail by single crocheting around half of the current fin (tail fin 2) and joining up the other fin and working a complete round on that one, and then finishing the other half of the 2nd fin. total you'll have about 16-18 stitches. if there's a hole in the middle where you joined, you can sew it if you like.
counts as rnd 1 of tail.

rnd 2: 1 sc in each stitch around if you had 18 sts in the previous round. if you had less than 18, then increase tso you have 18 sts in that round.
rnd 3: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 8 sts) twice - 20 sts total
rnd 4-7: 1 sc in each stitch around - 20 sts total
rnd 8: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 9 sts) twice - 22 sts
rnd 9 1 sc in each st around - 22 sts total
rnd 10: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 10 sts) twice - 24 sts
rnd 11: 1 sc in each st around - 24 sts
rnd 12: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 11 sts) twice - 26 sts
rnd 13: 1 sc in each st around - 26 sts
rnd 14: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 12 sts) twice - 28 sts
rnd 15: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 6 sts) 4 times - 32 sts
rnd 16: 1 sc in each st around - 32 sts
rnd 17: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 7 sts) 4 times - 36 sts
rnds 18- 21: 1 sc in each st around - 36 sts
rnd 19: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 8 sts) 4 times - 40 sts
rnd 20: 1 sc in each st around - 40 sts
rnd 21: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 9 sts) 4 times - 44 sts
rnd 22-23: 1 sc in each st around - 44 sts
rnd 24: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 10 sts) 4 times - 48 sts
rnd 25: 1 sc in each st around - 48 sts
rnd 26: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 11 sts) 4 times - 52 sts
rnd 27: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 12 sts) 4 times - 56 sts
rnd 28: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 6 sts) 8 times - 64 sts
rnd 29- 41: 1 sc in each st around - 64 sts

check to see if it is a good size, like if it is too big. if it is too big decrease evenly for 2 rows till it is the perfect size. if it is perfect continue evenly for 2 rows.
end off gray at 43 rows

with pink, attach yarn with a single crochet near where you ended with grey and work 1 sc in the BACK LOOP ONLY for 1 row, end off pink and attach white.

TEETH
with white attached to where you ended pink and a G hook, (ch 4, sc in snd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, dc in next ch) skip 1 stitch and slip stitch tightly to next stitch. repeat around hat and then finish off.

EYES (make 2)
with eye color yarn and I hook ch 2
6 sc in 2nd ch from hook
switch color to white and looseley sc 1 in each stitch around, join with loose slip stitch and end off with a long tail to sew
eyes should lie flat if you did this loose enough.
with black and a tapestry or yarn needle, sew a streat line from one end of the pupil to the other end.

FINS (make 3)
Note: this is kind of confusing, so you can make this however you want, you might come out with a better way than I did)

with I hook and grey yarn, work rnds 1-7 as you did tail fins
next rnd
2 sc in each of next 2 sts, 1 sc in each of next 2 sts, 1 hdc in each of next 2 sts, 1 dc in next st, (1 treble crochet in each of next 3 sts, but finish them off together so it is one stitch), 1 dc in next st, 1 hdc in wach of next 2 sts, 1 sc in each of next 5 ssts, finish off leaving a long tail for sewing.

attach side fins at around rnd 28

here is a diagram of how it should look flat




enjoy! and if you make one i'd love to see yours Smiley
hope it's not too confusing ><

Great job!  I, too, would love to have the pattern.  If for no other reason than to have a crocheted shark hat to wear to a Jimmy Buffet concert!
