Some of us at The Artful Yarn are all up into the Shark Week nerd appeal - and to celebrate, we’ve put together a not-serious-at-all Shark Week KAL/CAL - it’s where you knit or crochet something during Shark Week and just have fun with it. We like these Shark Bite Socks by Lara Smoot!
Here’s a link to a Ravelry Bundle of knit and crochet projects that might be fun to start during Shark Week. (We think it’s been 30 years!) It is not an exhaustive list of sharky projects, but you’ll get the idea.
Or you can just knit/crochet you current project. It’s all just a shameless excuse to binge watch Shark Week shows and get your loops on!
Need some other ideas? We’ve also created our own Shark Week Chum Buckets 600 yards of fingering yarn. Check them out here on Ravelry if you would like to jump into a linen stitch scarf or cowl. We also created a fun, little guide for changing your colors for those projects which is included with our kits. All tucked together in a little sand bucket!
Here's our Shark Week game: Using up to 8 different colors
Work 1 row in Color A if someone talks in an Australian accent
Work 2 rows in Color B if they tell you how to survive a shark attack
Work 2 rows in Color C if there is a reenactment of a shark attack
Work 2 rows in Color D if a shark is caught or trapped
Work 3 rows in Color E if they play the Jaws movie theme
Work 3 rows in color F if someone is submerged in a cage
Work 4 rows in Color G if a shark jumps out of the water
So we plan to watch Shark Week shows, keep track of these show elements then knit or crochet something truly unique! Won't you join us . . . safely on shore?!
