Shark Hat!! Free Crochet Pattern

Well isn’t the shark craze funny? The Baby Shark Dance and other shark themes have taken over! My kids love the Baby Shark song. And they are not little anymore… So, in celebration of sharks, I thought I would make this fun shark pattern.

I also needed some boy hats for my craft show coming up. I have made lots of owls and unicorns and other girlie stuff. But, I needed to add to the repertoire of boys stuff that I have!

This hat follows my basic hat pattern and works up fast. This is also an easy hat for beginners, if you are just learning to crochet. It only really uses double crochet, single crochet a sc2tog and chains.

Stuff the horn with fiberfill and sew onto the top of the hat, according to the picture.
