Ninja





Sorry for the long wait. I have made a bunch of versions of this one and finally settled on a pattern to put on here. I hope you like it. My boys want me to do some in orange and blue and white and on and on. My little girl wants me to make a pink ninja. I think I prefer the black though.

Use a thick yarn and loop it around him and tie it or crochet a thick chain and wrap it around him. I just used a dowel for a staff. If you have a little play sword it would look great too.
