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.

Thank you sooo much for posting these directions. My DD and her friend adore platypus and I made one for her friends birthday gift....I posted about it at my blog if you wanna see.

I'm teaching myself crochet and this is the first time I really had to follow a pattern - your directions were very easy to follow.

 visit my blog at http://mycreativesanity.blogspot.com/2010/03/crochet-platypus.html to see him.

Thank you so much for sharing your awesome, and very easy to follow pattern! Smiley

I have made a miniature version of your platypus.  He is 3.8cm tall, and very cute!
I followed your pattern exactly, and my tiny little guy turned out wonderfully. Smiley

You can see pics on my blog at http://wp.me/pX4G0-2H

Thanks again! Smiley

I love your platypus. After I saw it, I made one and it turned out really cute. Do you have a blog, facebook page, website? If so I would like to post the picture so you can see how it turned out.

I am starting a small internet business. I would like to sell the platypus' that I make. I am asking your permission to sell anything that I make with your pattern. I would like also to give you credit for your pattern. So If you have a blog, facebook page, etc I can link back to your site so others can see who created such a cute pattern and then possibly use it. I believe that credit should be given where credit it due. Thank you for your time and continue creating.
