Of coarse, these were still the same general techniques and colors, the biggest change was definitely the shaping for the heads on these hammerheads.
I wanted to try to keep the head in proportion to the rest of its body, so I modified how the front of the head connects to the body. I also left a longer piece of yarn hanging off at the beginning so I could use it to close up part of the head without having any additional rows or stitches on one side of the head.
The other big difference between my hammerheads and my other crocheted sharks is the length of the fins. Hammerheads have the longest fins compared to body size than any other shark, so I wanted to emphasize this physiological difference on these as well.
The pectoral fins are about 30% longer than on my other sharks, and the dorsal fin is about 20% longer. The caudal (tail) fin was set up to be a slightly different shape than I normally do to better mirror this type of shark.
