Make your own amigurumi platypus with this downloadable crochet pattern.

This quick and easy project only takes about an hour to make, and is great for using up leftover yarn in your stash.

The pdf file includes a written crochet platypus pattern (US crochet terms), crochet charts, step-by-step photos, and detailed assembly instructions. A printer-friendly version with fewer photos is included.

You'll also get a copy of our beginner's crochet guide, which teaches you some basic techniques used to make amigurumi. The guide has left-hand and right-hand versions.

Your own handmade platypus can be used as a little gift, decoration, or cute desk accessory.

This is an easy amigurumi pattern that uses mostly single crochet stitches in the round. The required techniques are taught in the included beginner's guide.

Using medium (worsted) weight yarn and a 3.5mm (E) crochet hook, your platypus will be about 9 cm (3.5 in) long and 4 cm (1.6 in) wide. However, exact gauge is not important for this project, and you can adjust the size by using thicker or thinner yarn.

MATERIALS NEEDED (not included with purchase):
• medium (worsted) weight yarn in body colour (about 16 m / 17 yds)
• medium (worsted) weight yarn in contrast colour (about 6 m / 7 yds)
• 3.5 mm (E) crochet hook
• toy stuffing
• yarn needle
• sewing needle
• black sewing thread
• 6 mm black beads for eyes

So happy with this pattern! I had NEVER picked up a crochet needle before but really wanted to give it a shot, so I thought this cute platypus would be a great way to start. The instructions were super detailed and easy to follow after I got the hang of the names of the stitches. And even when I messed up several times during the process, forgot to count lines, missed and added stitches, I was still able to create my own little platypus. The pattern is really forgiving so it was perfect for a total newbie like me! Thanks so much for creating this!

Cute platypus, my oldest boy was really excited to have “the puff ball platypus”. I altered the tail pattern to make the bill as this gave it more structure and made a slight change on the feet also to make them more paddle like. Overall good, easy to follow instructions.

The pattern is very simple to do, on the other hand, the small downside of this boss is that it has not been created with the alternative of being able to put safety eye because you start from the tail and you finish at the head. which makes it a little difficult to place the eyes since the boss takes marbles that are placed after closing. otherwise I like it anyway:)
