Bats keep appearing in odd corners around my flat. I have had in mind to knit a bat for a while, and although it is still a while until Halloween, this new pattern will give you time to knit a few. 

This is a fairly quick knit, and although all my bats are knitted with doubleknit wool, I think you could use this pattern to use up any wool oddments you have left over in other thicknesses, so long as you adjusted the needle size. Children could have a lot of fun if their bat were put on an elastic thread, and I am also thinking of stringing mine together to make a bat bunting.

This pattern is available on ravelry, Etsy and Love Knitting. I hope you have fun making some spooky bats.

Just a reminder that there is still plenty of time left to join in my Ginx Woolly Linx party for September. Click on the photo above or at the top of the page to find the party. I would love to see what you have been working on this month.


  1. That's adorable. I don't see knit animals much. He's great.

  2. LOVE the multicolored one! I just purchased a little bat from my local dollar store to hang from a wreath I am working on. Fun idea to make them into a bunting!
