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!

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

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

ha!  on the hooters!  Smiley
thanks for the compliments.  i sort of miss them taking up space in the apartment, though i'm sure that 2 cubic feet is probably already full of some other something.  apparently they went for some good, lively bidding, so hopefully they did some good for cancer research!

i made these for a friend's charity ho-down...each is filled with a cup and a half of rice and beans, so in case of emergency you can open up the sewn flap and stave off hunger for a day or so.  Wink

pink owl by drunkenlibraria, on Flickr
each owl is made with several strands held together and is about a foot or so in diameter.  the stuffing and beans-and-rice are enclosed in a fabric lining, so the inner pillow can also be removed if the outside needs to be washed.  hopefully they'll make a couple buck for breast cancer research!  just thought i'd share--i miss them already.  Smiley
19  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / crochet futurama brainslug on: September 30, 2011 09:54:37 AM
made for my friend peita...it's got long ties on either side, so she can wear it in traditional futurama style...

brainslug by drunkenlibraria, on Flickr

it's about four inches in diameter and maybe six inches tall...was very pleased about how the slugbottom ruffled...
