Friday is Amigurumi Day at Crochet News and if this toothy grin doesn’t make you smile today, nothing will! This crochet shark amigurumi is just a ball with fins, named Bernard the Ball Shark, and he works up pretty easily. The details in this pattern turn a simple ball into a cute (and cuddly?) shark – the gills, teeth, and fins. Step by step photos in this free pattern and tutorial will help you create your own shark with personality.
He’s great for throwing around the house and playing catch because he’s just a big ball. Enjoy his soft and cuddly side without the sharp teeth.
