This shark is a knitted marvel, even his pointy teeth are knitted. The pattern was created for my (then) 4 year old. "Mom, can you knit me a shark?" Who can resist a design brief like that? For an INTERMEDIATE knitter. The shark is mostly knitted in the round in one piece on dpns with some areas worked flat, there are lots of picked up stitches, some increasing and decreasing and the teeth are made with short row shaping (fully explained in the pattern). The pattern has only two short seams, so this shark is a perfect project for the knitter who doesn't like to sew. HINTS AND TIPS to help you with this pattern are available on my blog this is mentioned in the pattern.

I'm an expat Brit living in the San Francisco Bay Area and a stay at home Mum. I'm also an avid knitter with many ideas for interesting designs using unusual construction and techniques. My Mum taught me to knit when I was 7 years old, I thought I'd forgotten it but when I came back to knitting 7 years ago I discovered that it was all still there. I love to knit in 3D and around corners, so I use knitting in the round and short row shaping in many of my designs. I'd also prefer not to sew lots of pieces together, so my knitted toy designs have as little sewing as I can manage.
