Looking through the documentation don’t see how this might be done.
Can you please point me in the right direction.

As @Woet mentioned, a sub-domain is simply another record type. Generally you’d want to use an A record to create a subdomain. The example below, creates the sub-domain www to the domain example.com by adding an A record pointing to an IP address:

require 'droplet_kit'
token='YOUR_DIGITALOCEAN_API_TOKEN'
client = DropletKit::Client.new(access_token: token)

record = DropletKit::DomainRecord.new(type: 'A', name: 'www', data: '162.10.66.0')
client.domain_records.create(record, for_domain: 'example.com')
