Free Crochet Pattern – Crochet Bat Batsy

Amigurumi Bat by Croby Patterns

Hello my lovely crocheters!

The Autumn is here and October and Halloween time with it. Are you already thinking about your Halloween costumes? Is your house already filled with decorations in the spirit of the Halloween time too? 🙂 So exciting!

I was playing with my yarn and sketching some designers few days ago and created this cute amigurumi bat. I was using 100% cotton yarn, Cotton Light from brand Drops (this is not a sponsored post, I wish it would be, because their yarn is  just phenomenal 🙂 and I would definitely recommend it) and my 3 mm crochet hook. I know there is no 3 mm crochet hook in US or it’s hard to find them, but you can use C/2 which is 2.75 mm hook or D/3 which is 3.25 mm hook instead. Just make sure that the stitches are tight enough and the stuffing would not start coming out through the stitch holes.

Something new for me, but common technique when creating amigurumi projects was using the felt material. I was using it for bat’s ears, wings and nose.

PATTERN: Amigurumi bat Batsy

You will need:

  • crochet hook: 3.0 mm
  • yarn needle
  • stitch markers
  • yarn: DK weight 100% cotton yarn in violet color, 50 g (1.75 oz) and very small amount of white yarn for the bow.
  • safety eye
  • fiberfill
  • violet felt for wings, ears, legs and nose and white felt for teeth
  • glue gun

Gauge: 11 sts and 11 rows in sc measure 2 x 2 inch (5 x 5 cm).

Stitches:

All of my patterns are written in standard American terms.

Important: Because I do not have the safety eyes at the moment I’ve made them from polymer clay and glue them on the bat’s hat. If you would like to place the real safety eyes, you can do this between round 10 and 11 and make sure you have 7 to 8 sts space between the eyes.
