Introduction: Tiny Mutant Ninja Turtle

Picture of Tiny Mutant Ninja Turtle

I wanted to make some amigurumi tiny mutant ninja turtles. I found these really cool ones on Craftster: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles amigurumis for my daughter, but they were too large for what I wanted, so I made up my own. This is what I got. I had fun making these little ones, so I’m posting a small tutorial on how I made them. I work everything on the round, and use a magic ring to start almost everything. If you don’t know how to make a magic ring, here is a great tutorial from PlanetJune.

Mark the beginning of the rows with a piece of contrasting color yarn. The numbers in parenthesis are the number of stitches you'll have at the end of each row.

I’ve tested this pattern a few times, but if there’s a mistake or something that doesn’t quite work let me know so I can fix it.

You can also find this pattern on Ravelry.

Step 1: Stitches Used
