Shark Attack! Lap Blanket for Ages 2 thru 14 Knitting Pattern


English and Danish files are included.

The girls have their mermaid tails.
What about their brothers?
Who wouldn't love to be eaten by a shark on their own sofa?

This pattern is actually 2 documents.
One is designed for knitting in-the-round (the last of the small pictures.)
The other is designed for knitting back and forth. This version is seen in the main photo. While the back is open for easy on and off, I want to mention that the fin is MUCH easier to knit in the round, so don't be fooled into thinking you are getting out of that.

A REALLY fun project!
But not for scarf knitters, unless you are ready for an adventure!
If you allow yourself lots of time, and take each part of it as it comes, I think you will love it.

Sizes included:

Small (2 to 6 years)
Medium (6 to 10 years)
Large (10 to 14 years)

It would not be hard to size up for adults. Just make it a bit wider and longer. You don't need to change the snout or the fins sizes, unless you are making it for a really large person.

Materials: US 11 circular needles in 2 lengths and from 30 to 40 ounces of worsted yarn. (More if you do scale it up for an adult.)

PLEASE NOTE: This is a set of instructions, not the physical object. Once you have paid, you will receive an Etsy order confirmation email with instructions for downloading your pattern pdf file, along with a file that tends to help if you live outside the USA, about yarn and needle terminology and equivalents.

I have video tutorials on my blog,

About downloading onto a tablet or phone:
You must log in to your Etsy account through the web browser and look in the Purchases area up at the top right of the page to find the invoice and the link to click, rather than trying to download from the link in your confirmation email while logged into the Etsy app. That just doesn't seem to work. I don't know why. I think the Etsy techs are working on it.

Digital downloads
File delivery
Your files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. Here's how.


I accept credit cards, Etsy gift cards, and PayPal as instant payments.

If none of these work for you, I will also accept a US check or money order by mail.
I'm sorry, but no Canadian checks or money orders. The fees to process them cost more than their face value, usually.

Returns & exchanges

I do accept returns on knitted items if returned immediately, but I cannot refund the shipping fee you pay to me, nor the money you pay the post office to send it back to me.

Additional policies

I welcome questions about custom orders.
