Difficulty

Advanced Beginner to Advanced

Based on the choice of yarn and techniques used the Crochet Bat varies in difficulty. Fur yarns are more difficult to work with, so using a smooth worsted weight yarn makes the project more beginner-friendly. The topstitching on the wings can also be omitted, if desired, to further simplify the pattern.

  • Using hook size E/4 (3.5 mm) the first 6 rounds of the body in worsted weight yarn measure approximately 2 1/8  inches (5.4 cm) in diameter.

Design Notes

  • The pattern is written using US crochet terminology.
  • The pattern is written in rounds for the body, it will be helpful to place a stitch marker at the beginning stitch of the round and move it up at the start of each additional round. The wings and ears are written in rows.
  • At the end of each round/row, the number of stitches for completion is noted in parentheses.
  • Further design notes will be provided throughout the pattern to help aid in construction.
  • Caution! If using safety eyes take into consideration who will be using the item. The use of safety eyes is not recommended for children under the age of three or for those prone to putting things in their mouth as they may cause a choking hazard. Crocheted or hand embroidered eyes are a great alternative!

Let’s Make Our Bat!

Body

  • Making the Furry Bat: Use Hook Size H/8 (5.00 mm) and Color (A)
  • Making the Smooth Bat: Use Hook Size E/4 (3.5 mm) and Color (C)

>Design Note: When working with furry yarn the wrong side is often fuzzier than the right side, so it may be desirable as a design preference to leave the wrong side facing out.

Left Image: What would usually be considered “the right side” of the piece.
Right Image: What would usually be considered “the wrong side” of the piece but is fuzzier.

  • Rnd 1: 6sc in adjustable (magic) circle. (6sts)
  • Rnd 1 alternative: If preferred, ch2 and then 6sc in 2nd chain from hook. (6sts)
  • Rnd 2: 2sc in each st around. (12sts)
  • Rnd 3: [Sc in the next st, 2sc in next st] 6 times. (18sts)
  • Rnd 4: [Sc in the next 2sts, 2sc in the next st] 6 times. (24sts)
  • Rnd 5: [Sc in the next 3sts, 2sc in the next st] 6 times. (30sts)
  • Rnd 6: [Sc in the next 4sts, 2sc in the next st] 6 times. (36sts)
  • Rnd 7: [Sc in the next 5sts, 2sc in the next st] 6 times. (42sts) 
  • Rnd 8: [Sc in the next 6sts, 2sc in the next st] 6 times. (48sts)
  • Rnd 9: [Sc in the next 7sts, 2sc in the next st] 6 times. (54sts)
  • Rnds 10-18: Sc in each st around. (54sts for 9 Rnds) 
  • Rnd 19: [Sc in the next 7sts, sc2tog] 6 times. (48sts)
  • Rnd 20: [Sc in the next 6sts, sc2tog] 6 times. (42sts)
  • Rnd 21: [Sc in the next 5sts, sc2tog] 6 times. (36sts)
  • Rnd 22: [Sc in the next 4sts, sc2tog] 6 times. (30sts)

Insert the safety eyes. The suggested placement is between Rnds 11 and 12 approximately 7sts apart. If making the furry bat exact placement may be tricky. As a general guideline, the eyes should be placed above the body midline, approximately 2 inches (5 cm) down from Rnd 1. The distance between the eyes is a little over 1 inch (2.5 cm). Firmly stuff and shape the body and continue to do so as the pattern progresses.  

  • Rnd 23: [Sc in the next 3sts, sc2tog] 6 times. (24sts)
  • Rnd 24: [Sc in the next 2sts, sc2tog] 6 times. (18sts)
  • Rnd 25: [Sc in the next st, sc2tog] 6 times. (12sts)
  • Rnd 26: [Sc in the next st, sc2tog] 4 times. (8sts)

>Design Note: If using fur yarn continue to sc2tog until the hole is as small as possible, then proceed with the directions. If working in worsted weight yarn continue with the directions below.

  • Sl st to the first st and fasten off leaving a long tail to close up the hole. Close the hole with a tapestry needle stitching only through the front loops if using worsted weight yarn and through the full stitch if using fur yarn until the hole pulls nicely closed, secure and weave in the end.

Wings

Make 2

Slip Stitching and Surface Stitching on the Wings

Image Left: Slip stitches and surface stitching completed on the front of the wing.
Image Right: Back view of the wing with the slip stitches and surface stitching.

Using Color (C)

Sl st along the side and top of the wings. The slip stitches are worked into the sts along the far edge and into coordinating spaces for each row along the top. For the bat’s left wing, start on the long outer side at the bottom and then along the top (pictured right in the image, red arrows). For the bat’s right wing, start along the top at the inside skinniest portion of the wing and then down the far edge (pictured left in the image, red arrows).

Image: To topstitch the center lines of the bat’s wing the crochet hook is inserted from the front to the back of the work to start.

  • Surface st the lines in the middle of the wings. For both wings, start at the middle point of the wing closest to the outer edge and surface stitch towards the top center point and then back down to the other middle point in the wing. Indicated by the blue arrows.
    • Explained: With the working loop on the hook, insert the hook at the tip of the point closest to the widest part of the wing from the right side to the wrong side of the work, yarn over, and pull the yarn through the loop. V stitches will form on the front and dashed lines will form on the back.
    • *Move the hook up about 1/8 inch (0.3 cm) towards the top corner, insert the hook from the right side to the wrong side of the work, yarn over, and pull the yarn through the loop.* Repeat instructions between * * as many times as needed to reach the top point of the wing and then back down to the other point. Pay attention to the pattern being created on both sides and remove and redo stitches if it isn’t looking accurate. Fasten off and weave in the ends.

>Design Tip: To make it easier, the ends from slip and surface stitching can be woven into the actual batwing rather than the surface stitching, just be sure to weave through the middle of the stitches so that the ends do not show through on either side.

>Design Option: Instead of slip stitching and surface stitching, other alternatives include leaving the wings without stitching, hand embroidering the lines, or creating chains and stitching those onto the wings.

Ears

>Design Tip: Use a regular sc decrease when working in Rows.

  • Sl st to the first st and fasten off leaving a long tail to stitch to the inside of the Outer Ear.
Stitching the Inner and the Outer Ear Together
  • Stitch the Inner Ear to the middle of the Outer Ear with a whip stitch leaving equal distance around the outside. Make sure that the stitching does not show through on the backside of the Outer Ear.
  • Fold the bottom sides of the Outer Ear over the bottom portion of the Inner Ear until the Outer Ear stitches on each side meet in the middle. Whipstitch the bottom few rows together shaping the bottom of the ear into a point. Leave the long tail for attaching the ear to the body.

Assembly

Pin all the pieces together to determine the desired placement for the entire Crochet Bat and stitch securely into place.

General placement and stitching suggestions:

  • Ears. Fasten the ears to the top of the body. On the worsted weight bat, this is out from the top center at about Rnd 4. Tilt the ears so they lay slightly on their side and stitch in place. The furry bat’s ears should be placed at about the same space 1.25 inches (3.18 cm) apart.
  • Wings. The wings are attached on either side of the body about 1 inch (2.5 cm) down from the ear on either side.
  • Ribbon Hanger. Optionally thread a 12 (+/-) inch (30.5 cm) long piece of satin ribbon through the center top with a tapestry needle, tie with a square knot, and then pull the ribbon down to where the knot is hidden inside the bat’s body. If the ends stick out they can be poked into the body with the tapestry needle or a crochet hook so they are hidden.
