This is my first post on Craftster, yay me!
I made a little platypus up from the goings-on in my head and would like to share! Smiley
(Trust me, he's a lot cuter in person...my camera kinda sucks.)




Here is the pattern in all of its squee-happy glory!

Materials:
Yarn
Hook
Safety eyes - 10 mm

Gauge:
Doesn't matter, the smaller the yarn and hook, the smaller the platypus, and vice versa.

Head:
1.  magic ring (6)
2.  inc around (12)
3.  *sc, inc* around (18)
4.  *2 sc, inc* around (24)
5.  *3 sc, inc* around (30)
6.  *4 sc, inc* around (36)
7-12.  sc around (36)
13.  *4 sc, dec* (30)
14.  *3 sc, dec* (24)  Now put eyes on 10 sts apart, between rows 7 and 8.
15.  *2 sc, dec* (18)  Finish off, weaving the end into the head.  Stuff.

Body:
1.  magic ring (6)
2.  inc around (12)
3.  *sc, inc* around (18)
4-10.  sc around (18)  Finish off.  You will use the tail from the body to sew on the head, so leave enough!  Stuff.

Bill:
1.  magic ring (6)
2.  inc around (12)
3.  *5 sc, inc* around (14)
4.  *6 sc, inc* around (16)
5-6.  sc around (16)  Finish off.

Tail:
1.  magic ring (6)
2.  inc around (12)
3.  *5 sc, inc* around (14)
4.  *6 sc, inc* around (16)
5-7.  sc around (16)
8.  *6 sc, dec* around (14)
9.  *5 sc, dec* around (12)
10.  *4 sc, dec* around (10)  Finish off.

Arms (2):
1.  magic ring (6)
2-3.  sc around (6)  Finish off.

Do not stuff the bill, tail or arms.

Feet (2):
1.  magic ring (6)
2.  inc around (12)
3-4.  sc around (12)
5.  *sc, dec* around (6)  Finish off.  Stuff.


Well, there he is!  If anyone finds any problems with the pattern, just let me know.

Excellent! Thanks for sharing the pattern. I have a friend who loves all things platypus, so I'll have to make her one.
