Nathan the Platypus Crochet Amigurumi Pattern
Meet Nathan the Platypus!
This cutie is originally hails from Australia, but he’s looking to snuggle in your home!
This is exclusively available as a PDF pattern, delivered instantly. No shipping costs and no waiting! (If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.)
Nathan measures 15” long from bill to tail.
Want a bigger or smaller platypus? Use thicker or thinner yarn and a larger or smaller hook!
This is an easy pattern, but it uses a couple of skills that are best tackled if you've already made one or two amigurumi.
- single crochet
- attaching parts
- single crocheting multiple rounds together
The pattern is a pdf that contains links to videos teaching all the skills you'll need, plus step-by-step photographs, so you’ll never feel lost or wonder if you're doing it right. :-)
You can find links to sources for many of my favorite tools and supplies here.
