Valentines Day The Hook Ninja

Hi Hook Ninjas!
We have Amigurumi patterns in 3 categories, from beginner to advanced. Use the lists in the sidebar to check them all out! :)

Amigurumi Platypus free crochet pattern

Amigurumi pattern of a Platypus. One of the wierdest animals on the planet.

For this pattern you will need:

  1. Brown yarn 4 mm
  2. Black yarn 4 mm
  3. Two Plastic safety eyes
  4. white yarn 4 mm
  5. Fiberfill stuffing

Hook size:
For this amigurumi crochet pattern I am using a 4 mm hook but you can use a smaller or bigger. The bigger the hook the less tight the stitches and the bigger your amigurumi. If you use the hook I am recommending in this crochet pattern and your fabric still looks loose (you can see the stuffing) you should use a smaller hook.
