Ninja Turtle Amigurumi

Cowabunga, Dudes! Here are 4 very cute crochet ninja turtles named after the great Renaissance artists. I’m happy to release this ninja turtle amigurumi as a free crochet pattern so you can also create your very own cute gang. Except instead of being Teenage Ninja Turtles, they’re more like Baby Ninja Turtles!

Ninja Turtle Amigurumi

With this crochet ninja turtle amigurumi, the features include a color bandana to each differentiate one from the other, tiny legs and arms, and a green shellback, or rather should I say “turtles in a half shell?”

Somehow this Master Rat came to quickly adopt the turtle amigurumis and take them under his tutelage to train them in the arts of ninjutsu.

I made the discovery that their favorite food is pizza.

More specifically, pizza with anchovies! Look at them gobbling it all up!
