The Little Platypus is made up of two separate body parts (top and bottom) and 4 feet ( left ones and right ones).

The pattern has step-by-step instructions and two pages of colour photos showing some knitting up of the platypus, the sewing up and the embroidering of the eyes on the platypus.

This platypus is quick to knit up. Make a whole family and gift them to someone special. They will have endless hours of fun, as do my own children.
