Nikita The Ninja

Nikita The Ninja is dedicated to her martial arts! She trains daily in pursuit of her black belt. As a loyal friend and workout partner, she’ll keep you motivated in achieving your goals.

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner

The pattern is written in U.S. crochet terms, complete with clear instructions and  pictures to help you along the way. Nikita The Ninja is crocheted in continuous spirals without joining the rounds. I suggest using a stitch marker or different color yarn to keep track of each round. Nikita The Ninja is crocheted in worsted weight yarn and is approximately 5 inches tall.  Be aware that size may vary depending on the yarn and hook size used. Gauge is not particularly important, just be consistent with the tension you are using. And most importantly, have fun!
