bat by drunkenlibraria, on Flickr
i made a few bats for halloween--i crocheted them in three pieces, two wings and a body, and then sewed them together and glued on glow-in-the-dark googly eyes.  this big boy is two strands of black yarn with a P hook, i think it was, and the little guys are one strand with a J hook.

i think they came out super cute and they didn't take long to make, once i got my wings down.  Smiley  i'm happy to share the wing "pattern" if anyone wants it--you can make a bat in half an hour or so, so it's great for last minute battifying.  Smiley

Awesome! Those are great Halloween decorations, especially if they were so fast. I'd love the pattern. I'm always looking for ways to make halloween decorations and I even know how to crochet!  Roll Eyes

thanks!
for each wing, i chained 5--this starting chain is the bat's armpit, basically, and will be the side you sew to the body.
i'm not much of a pattern-maker, so i'll just describe it--once you're doing it, it should be clear--you'll be increasing on one side, decreasing on the other end to make the curve of the wing
row 1 3hdc
row 2 increase 3 at end of row, 5hdc all together
row 3 increase 3 at start of row, decrease 3 at end of row (hdc3tog), 5hdc all together
row 4 hdc across, decrease 2 at end of row
row 5 hdc2tog at start of row, increase 3 at end of row
row 6 increase 3 at start of row, hdc2tog at end of row
row 7 hdc2tog at start of row, increase 3 at end of row, finish and weave in end

hopefully this picture will help a little...ususally you are increasing on the increase side, decreasing on the decrease side, whichever makes sense to make a bat shape!
