The Sharkbite Crochet Snuggle Sack is a play on the ever-popular mermaid blanket, though instead of a mermaid tail, this crochet snuggle sack tucks you into the jaws of a shark. This easy crochet pattern features simple crochet stitches to make the body and fins of the shark, as well as the eyes. There are even little crochet teeth to make this crochet blanket pattern more fun and realistic! This crochet pattern is perfect for kids as they work on their homework or to use during sleepovers - and they make fantastic birthday or holiday crochet gifts!
