wow, it seems like you really like Berti, which I now name Morgan (Batman). After sewing on the eyes I couldn’t see a Berti any longer, my bat was a little more grown up, if you know what I mean.

 

Anyways, Morgan seems like an attention seeker ^__^ as I can see quite a lot of you reading the original post. Thank You! I finally made the pattern into a pdf now, so it’s easier to download and print and work from your computer.

 

If you make a bat of your own I’d love to see it, either on ravelry or just leave me a link to your blog use the #morganbatman when sharing your pictures on social media.

Thank you ^__^ and Happy Crocheting.

 

It's done! #amigurumi for #halloween

5,00 USD (+ taxes if applicable)


for the abbreviations I use in this pattern please read here

 

#morganbatman is worked in classic amigurumi style, which means in a long spiral round, never join a round after finishing one. Also I like my amigurumi to be worked through both loops (whereas I know couple fellow amigurumi makers who prefer the back loop only). So do whatever you like best.

 

Size | yarn | hook

I used catania yarn from Schachenmayr and my beloved 3.5 mm hook. My bat(man) has about 25 cm wingspan.

So, your little pumpkindle will be the size you choose, go with bigger yarn and a bigger hook and you will get a bigger one. If you decide to go smaller, of course your pumpkindle will be smaller, as easy as this right?

 

Easy or difficult?

Well, I would think intermediate. I write my patterns stitch by stitch, quite similar to knitting patterns actually. If you are familiar with my patterns you might think this is easy, as you only need the classic single crochet and slip stitch throughout most of the pattern. But it takes concentration so I think intermediate is quite fair ^__^

 

Final tip!!

use a stitch marker! I never give stitch count at the end of a round. All stitches are written to reach the end of the row. So if you are left with stitches before you reach the end please check you stitches.

I love to use a small piece of scrap yarn (I prefer pearl yarn, it stays unfuzzy pretty long) for marking my rounds. Another plus with scrap yarn, they don’t bulk the stitches around them and I can always choose a contrasting color.
