My pattern let me down!!!
I found this really cute pattern in a magazine (German). it is a shark hat for a kid.
knit in the round it mainly has a slow decrease on one line only then a tail fin is formed in 2 parts and a back fin is made. Untill there I was happy with the pattern, then it let me down.
the instruction for the backfin were “sparce” to be friendly. But for the teeth it only telly me to pick up the stitches around the cast on and “make teeth” - out of 90 stitches I shall make 18 teeth. (well, I just want to give that for reference).
So: the hat sits so that the sharks mouth is wide open and frames the head. that edge needs teeth.
Now I lack some creative power here… I COULD make a picot edge. ok. But that will be too knobby, to really look like teeth. (triangular, not rounded)
I could crochet the teeth.
But I really just want to knit them up perfectly.
Does anyone have an idea?
I would really like to send this out soon!
