Knit your own plush toy shark from this PDF knitting pattern of my original design. He's a knitted marvel, even his pointy teeth are knitted. And with only two short seams he's a perfect project for the knitter who doesn't like to sew.
This pattern was created for my 4 year old. "Mom, can you knit me a shark?" Who can resist a design brief like that?
FINISHED SIZE: Approximately 15” from tail to nose

Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) compliance statement.
The guidance statement issued by the CPSC on Feb 10th 2009 states that “yarn, dyed or undyed” and “dyed or undyed textiles” are components which “can be used (separately or in combination) and sold (provided they have not been treated or altered or undergone any processing that could result in the addition of lead)”. It also states that until some reliable way to test the levels of phthalates in plastics it is best to avoid plastic buttons unless “you know they don't contain phthalates”. As I know nothing about petrochemical processes I have therefore decided to abstain from the use of plastic buttons in my products until further information is available. For the full statement, please see http://www.cpsc.gov/about/cpsia/smbus/sbguide.pdf . Thank you.
