I've been promising the boyfriend that I'd make him an amigurumi ninja someday. I finally got around to it this week. After finishing this one late at night, I put him on top of our tea box, since that's one of the boyfriend's first stops in the morning. So now he's the Tea Ninja, who guards our tea and protects the food in our pantry from evil doers. I think he's quite happy to have a purpose!

This one is a bit of a mash up of two patterns. I used the body from the Thinker robot in Crobots by Nelly Pailloux to make him in the style of the ninja from Creepy Cute Crochet by Christen Haden. The little tie on his head was made using the instructions from Creepy Cute Crochet. He's made with a black sport weight yarn from Red Heart and a D size (3.25 mm) hook.

This was actually my first time making an amigurumi with a sport weight yarn. I really wanted to make the ninja small, without resorting to thread crochet. It wasn't a bad experience, but working with the smaller hook and yarn made my hands hurt a bit. I don't think I'd have the patience to make something more time consuming this way. Of course, he turned out so cute, I am growing tempted to try making him a little thread crochet sidekick...


The Tea Ninja posing with some bananas so you can get a better look at him. He stands about 2.75 inches high and is currently the smallest amigurumi in the house.

Thanks for looking!

very cute Smiley

i can sympathize with the sport weight yarn issue.  i've used it & thread for small projects like jewelry & such, but am making a hat from sport weight for a customer & i hate it! Lips sealed  i'll be glad when it's done &  gone home, lol.

 :)Hi, this is kimsdec23@gmail.com & I think the Tea Ninja is cute. I was wondering if you know where I can get the HappyHookers book. I've been looking for it everywhere & I can't find it. Do you or know anyone who knows how to make a stuffed animal, such as a bear? Please email if you do. Cheesy
