These little amigurumi bats would make cute toys for the kids or great decorations for Halloween. They are from the website "Fuzzy Feet Works."

The crochet pattern is for a 4 1/2" bat created with worsted weight yarn and a size G crochet hook. This is tiny and could be used for an applique' for a Halloween bag, a pin, or other uses.

This free crochet pattern for a bat magnet fridgie is extra nice. Use it on the fridge or use it for an applique'. She did an extra nice job designing the pattern.

The bat pattern is from They suggest using thread for a bat applique' or using worsted weight yarn to make a party decoration. The pattern uses very little yarn, so get out your scrap bag.

This is an especially nice pattern to make a crochet bat that is realistic. She used Caron Simply soft yarn and a size D crochet hook. The gauge and yarn type aren't that important, but will affect the size of the bat.
