Little Platypus Knitting Pattern


Little people love playing with little animals, and this cuddly little platypus is no exception.
It's always lovely crafting things for our children. As we engage in our craft children instinctively engage in their play secure in the calm space with us close by.
Here's a fairly quick and simple pattern you can work on while they play.
Please note this is the knitting pattern only, containing instructions and photos. See separate listing for the full Make Your Own Platypus Kit with all materials.

For this pattern you'll need:
- 25g ball of 4ply brown yarn
- 25g ball of 4ply black yarn
- 2.75mm (US 2) knitting needles
- tapestry needle
- toy stuffing
This platypus is quick to knit up. Make a whole family and gift them to someone special for endless hours of fun.
