After making the set of tiny mutant ninja turtles, I wanted to make Splinter too, about the same size as the turtles. So here’s the result.

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

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.
You can also find this pattern on Ravelry.

Step 1: Stitches Used

Here is a list of the abbreviations I used:

ch: chain

sl st: slip stitch

st: single crochet

hdc: half double crochet

dc: double crochet

Here is a page where there are tutorials for each of these stitches

Step 2: Make the Legs

make 2

1: st 4 in magic ring (4)

2: st 2 in each around (8)

3-7: st in each (8) Finish. Leave tail for sewing

Step 3: Make the Arms

make 2, I used a smaller hook to make them slightly smaller than the legs

1: st 4 in magic ring (4)

2: st 2 in each (8)

3-7: st in each (8)

8: hdc, dc, dc, hdc, st, sl st, finish. Leave tail for sewing

Step 4: Make the Body

1: st 5 in magic ring (5)

2: st 2 in each (10)

3: st around (10)

4: (St in next, st 2 in next) around (15)

5: St around (15)

6: (St in next 2, st 2 in next) around (20)

7-13: st around (20)

14: (st in next 2, dec over next 2) around (15)

15: (St in next, dec over next 2) around (10). Stuff.

16: (Dec over next 2) around (5). Sl st, finish

Step 5: Make the Ears

1: ch 3

2: dc in first st (2nd from hook)

Thread the tail from the tip of the ear to the bottom to sew to the head

Step 6: Make the Head

1: st 3 in magic ring (3)

2: st 2 in first st, st in next, st 2 in next (5)

3: st 2 in first st, (st in next, st 2 in next) around (8)

4: (st in next, st 2 in next) around (12)

5: st in each around (12)

6: (st in next st, st 2 in next) around (18)

7: (st in next 2 st, 2 st in next) around (24)

8-9: st in each around (24)

10: (st in next 2 st, dec over next 2) around (18)

11: (st in next 4 st, dec over next 2) around (15)

12: (st in next 3 st, dec over next 2) around (12). Attach ears, nose and eyes

13: (st in next 2 st, dec over next 2) around (9). Stuff

14: st in first, (dec over next 2) around (5). Sl st, finish. Leave tail for sewing

Step 7: Assemble

Pin all the parts together to make sure everything is in place before sewing.

Chain enough stitches to make the tail as long as you want, then attach it to the body.

Step 8: Make the Kimono

1: ch 21

2: st in 2nd st from hook and in next 19 st (20)

3: ch 2, turn, dc in next 20 st (20 dc)

4: ch 2, turn, dc in next 20 st (20 dc)

5: ch 2, turn, dc in next 20 st (20 dc)

6: ch 2, turn, dc in next 3 st, ch3 3, skip next 3 st, dc in next 7 st, ch 3, skip next 3 st, dc in last 4 st

7: ch 1, turn, st in next 20

You now have a vest. You can leave it like that, or add the sleeves.

To make the sleeves:

1: ch 9 and join with sl st to form a ring (9)

2: st 9 in the ring, join with sl st

3: ch 2, dc in next 9 st, join with sl st. Finish

Stitch the sleeves to the vest

To make the belt simply chain some stitches to make it the length you want.

Step 9: Finish It!

Now you can just dress Splinter up and put him with the turtles!

<p>Fun project. My son just got introduced to the Ninja Turtles and he would really love something like this. </p>
<p>Thanks! I'm glad you liked it :)</p>
