PATTERN NOTES

– I joined my rounds using Planet June’s no-cut join method because I was designing on the fly, so the instructions reflect a joined seam. It’ll work just as well if you work in continuous rounds, it’s up to you.
– The eyes, gills and teeth embroidery are sewn into the body before it is stuffed and closed up. The fins are added after the body is complete.
– The positioning of the eyes, gills and teeth embroidery do not have to be exact, especially the gills and teeth marks. I’ve given my best estimate of where everything is attached, but I wouldn’t worry about being completely exact with positioning of all the pieces.
– LEFT FIN is the shark’s left fin and RIGHT FIN is the shark’s right fin, as if you are the shark.

Fold the piece to create a triangle shape – you’ll be crocheting the two sides together. Insert hook into first stitch (there’s no chain stitch made) AND through both loops of the other side, work 1 sc. Working through all 4 loops, continue working 1 sc evenly across two sides of the triangle. Fasten off, leaving a long enough tail to sew onto the body.
Weave in the starting tail into the inside of the fin.

Fold the bottom half of the fin up, and using the active yarn, work slip stitches across to join the two halves. Fasten off, leaving a tail to sew onto the body. Use the starting tail to sew the two halves of the back of the fin together.

Tail

You’ll make 2 tails and crochet them together. For the first one, fasten off both tails and weave in. On the second tail, weave in the starting tail, and use the end tail to crochet the two pieces together.

Row 1: Ch 16. Starting from 2nd chain from hook, work 1 sc into each of next 3 ch. Work 1 hdc into each of next 3 ch. Work 1 dc into each of next 3 ch. Work 2 dc in each of next 2 st. Work 1 dc in next stitch, 1 hdc in next stitch, 1 sc in each of next 2 stitches. Ch 1. Turn.

Row 2: Work 1 sc in each of next 2 st, 1 hdc in each of next 2 st, 1 dc in next st. Work [1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc] in each of next 2 stitches. Work 1 dc in each of next 2 st, 1 hdc in each of next 3 st, 1 sc in each of next 5 sc. Fasten off.

To join the 2 tails together, insert hook through both pieces, and work slip stitches evenly around. Fasten off and weave in ends. You’ll add a new piece of yarn to sew onto the body.

Assembly

Gill #1: Ch 9. Starting from 2nd chain from hook, work 1 sl st into each chain across. Fasten off. Leave tail to sew onto body.
Gill #2: Ch 7. Fasten off. Leave tail to sew onto body.
Gill #3: Ch 5.Fasten off. Leave tail to sew onto body.

– The eyes are positioned between rows 18 and 19, at around stitch 33, and around stitch 48. They should line up with the curve of the mouth.
– The gills are added about 3 stitches behind the eyes, with each gill separated by about 2 stitches apiece, in this order – #1, #2, #3. Use the tail to sew the gills onto the body, using a running stitch, and forcing a slight curve to the gills with the stitches.
– Zigzag the thin Black yarn over the white stitches to “draw” the teeth.
– The dorsal fin is attached to the top of the shark’s head, centered.
– Each side fin is attached to the body where the light gray and dark gray meets (row 22). The front of each fin lines up approximately with the 3rd gill.
– To join the tail to the body, cut a piece of yarn about a foot long, join it to the tail with a knot around a v-stitch (1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc), leaving enough yarn to sew to the body. The tail joins where the light gray meets the dark gray, aligned with the dorsal fin up top. Make sure all ends are secure and weave in all ends.
