The Cute Ninja from Little Gamers (Crochet)

I used a worsted-weight yarn (I think it was Red Heart Super Saver, but I can’t be sure. It was just some black scrap yarn that was floating around the house) and a 4.0mm crochet hook. My little guy is about 6 inches tall.

*I’m writing this pattern down from memory, so please let me know if there are any problems/mistakes.

**Changes were made to the pattern on 13 February 2008.**

**Sorry! I'm reverting back to the original pattern! I had a lot of trouble with Cute Ninja Version 2.0 (the size of his head), and I tried out several different things, but turns out the original pattern was correct. The changes (back to the original) are made in dark purple. Apologies for the confusion! 13 February 2008.**

Each piece is worked in the round without joining rows. Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of the row in order to keep track of your rows.

Row 5: Sc2tog. Sc in next 3 sc. Sc2tog twice. Sc in next 4 sc. 10 sc.
Row 6-7: Sc around. Bind off, leaving a long tail to sew foot to body.

FINISHING:
Sew pieces together. You may want to sew the mask portion onto the head before stuffing the head. You may leave the arms unstuffed or stuff them for more definition. When you sew the feet on, sew the bottom row of the body onto the second or third row of the feet, shoving the feet into the body cavity a bit to create a bit of distinction between the body and the feet. In order to hide the last bit of stuffing that will peek through between the legs, sew the front of that area to the back.

Finally, for the little “notch” on the top of the ninja’s head, ch 2 and 2 sc in 2nd chain from hook. Bind off and tie the little notch to the top of the ninja. This also helps to conceal the little hole you may have at the top.
