I MUST stop wearing my fish hat around lest I get so many requests that I sink beneath the weight of them!!
You might be able to make like a balakava and somehow duplicate stitch his teeth and such at the bottom and his eyes across the top or something like that. I am definitely not very creative that way but if I see one, I will shoot the pattern over to you!

Thanks, Nonny. I hadn't thought of using a balakava pattern, but it's a good idea. Also, thanks for looking for patterns/hats, and for the private message with the very helpful link.

I should be getting my yarn on Monday, and I hope to start figuring this crazy hat out as soon as I can.

What if you used this pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/shark-hat-3as a base but made it orange and used a short fridge as the mane across the top of the head?

I was thinking that the jaws go over the ears and the main will form a sphere on top... I found some nice park sculptures with some prominent and friendly features but it is all three dimensional -- nose, mouth... I am not sure how to approach it without knitting all details and then sew them together.

I started on Christmas when I started knitting a few months back: I fell in love with grandmothers favorite dishcloth pattern. Easy peasy, and I can finish one in a couple nights. Yes, I knit slower than Christmas. LOLOL We give little hostess type gifts like that to the ladies in our family when we go visit.

And I made a special lace patterned washcloth for my niece, who sent us a beautiful hand knitted afghan a couple years back. Nested with some pretty girly bath soaps it will be pretty. I think she'll like it.
