Giant Shark Amigurumi
Uses: Like the name, this shark amigurumi is giant due to the use of bulky weight yarn and is perfect for older kids. Take it to the river trips or a place on the shelf of a boat lover. According to the designer, it can double as a pillow, but before doing this, make sure you use a yarn that doesn't peel off its color with time. Cotton is a nice option!

Making: The body of the Giant Shark Amigurumi is crocheted in rounds using gray yarn! Starting with a magic ring, single crochet stitches progressively increased to create a rounded body for the shark. Safety eyes are inserted about halfway through the body construction to give the shark its character. The pectoral fins (side fins), dorsal fins (top fins), and caudal fins (tail fins) are crocheted using gray yarn. The fin typically starts with a magic ring, followed by increased stitches as you proceed, giving it a rounded, three-dimensional shape. The final step involves consolidating the various parts together. The belly patch is attached to the bottom of the body, with the fins strategically placed around the shark's body. The mouth and gills were stitched onto the body. Lastly, the shark's teeth are seamed under the mouthline.

The crochet shark begins at the front of the head, moving towards the tail. It involves various crochet techniques like magic ring, single crochet, and increases (two single crochet stitches in the same stitch). Once the 56th round is completed, the crocheting forms the tail. Safety eyes were placed between rounds 14 and 15. Before inserting the safety eyes, the artisan recommends placing pins with large heads to ensure symmetrical placement. The tail was created as an extension of round 56 from the body construction process, with the tail fins made separately and later attached. The tail fins are not stuffed but crocheted in a spiral pattern with increases, decreases (invisible decrease), and single crochet stitches.
