Don't forget the bats!
I love the way my bat turned out. I used the simple ball pattern then added wings.
Here is the pattern for the wings, crochet 2(let me know if you find a mistake):
1. ch 8 , slst in last stitch, ch 8
2. slst in last stitch, 1 sc in next 2 sc, 1 hdc in next 2sc , 1 dc in next 3 sc, 1tr in next sc, 1 dc in next 3 sc, 1 hdc in next 2 sc, 1 sc in next 2sc
3. 1 sc , 1 sc in the next 2sts , 1hdc & 1dc in next st, ch 1, slst into ch, dbc into next st, sc2tog, sc into next st, sc2tog, 2 dbc in next st, ch1, slst into ch, 1dbc into next st, 1 hdc into next st, 1 sc into next st, sl st.
Sew wings onto the sides of the ball with matching yarn.
Use felt and/or buttons for eyes and stitch a mouth on with embroidery floss. Don't forget to add a loop so that you can hang your bats.
