Berti Bat - the pattern - complete

edit: here you can find the pdf download

_____

as promised yesterday, here's the first bits of the last minute Halloween amigurumi. I've worked on it for two afternoons, so making it should take about 3-4 hours total (depending on your time and mood of course ^__^)

I'm going to update the pattern on this post until Wednesday so we won't have the complete pattern on all sorts of different places (not like two or three posts would make a whole mess, but I like my stuff organised...must be part of being Virgo)

let's start, what's most important to a bat?

to know its abbreviations ^__^

sc -- single crochet
m2 -- classic increase
sc2tog -- classic decrease, I prefer the invisible way
B6 -- bobble made from 6 double crochets
B3 -- bobble made from 3 double crochets
hdc -- half double crocht
m2dc -- make two double crochets into one stitch, equals an increase with double crochets

_________

WINGS:

make two:

1 _make a slip knot and chain 7 with a slightly smaller hook than you normally would like to crochet with
2 _now use the hook you normally crochet with and starting in 2nd chain from hook: sc5, m3 in last chain, continue on the other side of the loops of the starting chain and sc4, m2, place a marker and continue to work in a round

  1. Hello! First of all, I love this bat! <3 But I have a tiny question: I've reached the end of wing #1, and the last three rounds have 14, 14 and 10 sc each. Does that mean I should decrease the last round by four scs evenly spread around, or should I end the last round after I've done ten scs? I'm a little bit confused ^^;;;

    1. Hi,

      sorry for my late reply I was away for a few days.

      you don't decrease in the last row, you just sc10, this will make sure you won't have a little "bump" on the front of the wing when you sew it to the body :)

  2. I was completely unable to follow this pattern. The rounds on the wings don't match up, and the stitches are inconsistent. I am frustrated, to say the least. I found this pattern on Ravelry, and spent an entire week trying, over and over again, to follow the wing pattern. I was completely unsuccessful and ended up frogging the project.

  4. Hi Diana,

    at round 18 there are 39 stitches but at rond 19 there only 34 :( I should decrease 1 stitch or more? Thanks!!!

  5. Hi Laia,

    In round 18 there are only 34 std, the B6 marks a bobble stitch made from 6 dc on one stitch. So you won't increase or decrease in these rows

    Hope I could help, Diana

  6. Oh bobble stitch is a pop corn stitch! Not 6dc on one stitch only! Thank you!
