I made this little guy as a birthday present for friend. He’d been asking for a Ninja Amigurumi action figure (I’ll refrain from calling this tough looking little guy a doll), and I was ready for the challenge of finding the perfect pattern. I finally came across this Little Gamers Ninja pattern at Somewhere Between the Stitches.
The pattern calls for a size G hook. I accidentally grabbed my H hook and by the time I realized I was using the wrong one, I was already half way through the project. Rather than start over, I continued and was pleased that everything turned out just fine. The project took me a total of about 3 hours from start to finish, but I guess the time just depends on your expertise level. I’m 3 decades old to the crochet game, but have only about 6 months experience with reading patterns. This particular pattern happens to be easy to follow and good for even beginners.
But the time I was finished, Little Ninja stood just slightly over 6 inches tall, which is pretty much on scale with the instructions.
Thanks Julia for such a cute and fun pattern.
