I've gone batty! (Free amigurumi bat pattern)

Materials:
I-hook
yarn needle
Yarn colors of choice

Wings (make 4):
Ch 12
Row 1: Sc in 2nd st from hook-ch 1and SC in same st, *HDC in next st, DC in next 2 st, HDC in next st, SC in next st* repeat from * to * ch 1, turn (12 sts)
Row 2: SC in same st as ch 1, *HDC in next st, DC in next 2 st, HDC in next st*, SC in next st, repeat from * to * ch 1, turn (10 sts)
Row 3: SC in same st as ch 1, *SC in next st, SC- ch 2- SC in next st, Sc in next st, SC in next st,* repeat from * to * sl st in last st
Leave long enough tail to sew 2 wings together.

each wing should look like this
sew 2 wings together, weave in ends but leave one end to sew to body.


Eyes (Make 2):
Magic circle with 6 SC, or ch 3 sl st to first ch and SC 6 times. Use stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round
Round 2: 2 SC in each st (12 sts), sl st to first st in round, Finish Off leaving a tail long enough to sew to body.
Add white for eye glisten

Here's an example of the completed eye with glisten.


Body:
Magic circle with 6 SC, or ch 3 sl st to first ch and SC 6 times. Use stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round
Round 2: 2 SC in each st (12 sts)
Round 3: 2 SC in first st, SC in next st, repeat around (18 sts)
Round 4: 2 SC in first st, SC in next 2 sts, repeat around (24 sts)
Round 5: 2 SC in first st, SC in next 3 sts, repeat around (30 sts)
Round 6: 2 SC in first st, SC in next 4 sts, repeat around (36 sts)
Round 7-15- 1 SC in each st around
Round 16: SC Dec, SC in next 4 sts, repeat around (30 sts)
Round 17: SC Dec, SC in next 3 sts, repeat around (24 sts)
Round 18: SC Dec, SC in next 2 sts, repeat around (18 sts)

At this point I like to sew on eyes and embroider mouth before I stuff, I like to fold where the row begins (see pic) and then sew eyes onto body. You can embroider the mouth however you would like to add a bit of your own personality. I like to make it look like two little fangs with a drip of blood on one fang. Stuff with polyfil.




Finishing up:
crochet back and forth across the top with SC. Weave in ends. Sew wings to back of bat body.

You can either attach a loop to make the bat an ornament or leave as is.   





This bat has not been tested, I'm sorry if there are any mistakes.  Please feel free to message me if you have any questions!
