As a bored college student you find ways to occupy your time. Some of us are creative, and we do things like this. Others are just boring and play vidya all day. So here's how to make an Amigurumi platypus, or,  how I spent my weekend.

Step 1: What you'll need.

Two colors of Yarn
The recommended crochet hook for said yarn
Yarn Needles
Buttons
Sewing Needles
Black Thread
Poly-fil

Step 2: The Head and the Body.

So the head and the body of this lovely little stuffy are all one piece. Follow this pattern.

Everything between asterisks (*sc, inc*) you must repeat around.
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) 
15. *2 sc, dec* (18)
16-25.  sc around (18)

Stuff,
Finish Off

Step 3: The Bill

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.
Ha! Fantastic.
