Everything between asterisks (*sc, inc*) you must repeat around.

It's time to put away your body color yarn and break out your next color!

The bill follows the pattern of a ball, but you won't be stuffing it.


1. Magic Ring sc (6)
2.  inc around (12)
3.  *5 sc, inc* around (14)
4.  *6 sc, inc* around (16)
5-6.  sc around (16)

Finish off. (When you finish off the bill leave a length of yarn at the end, you will use this to sew it to the face.)
DO NOT STUFF

you'll be joining the flat edge created by rounds 5 and 6 to the face of your soon to be platypus.
