    Oh! We’ve been having something of a bat-themed crafty weekend here, so these would be so fitting. And your bats are not only wonderful but they even appear easy(ish) for this novice knitter. Well, easy(ish) if I could just keep count of my rows.

    Thank you!

    What a great, simple pattern! These bats would be great on a window, AND would last much longer than the paper cutouts I’ve been using for years. Thanks for the design!

  22. Rachel November 23, 2010 at 7:17 am #

    Oh my stinkin’ heck! Halloween is past but I have got to make some of these!!!

  23. Laura November 1, 2013 at 1:11 am #

    I absolutely love this pattern – so quick, simple and so much fun to make! I made four of these adorable lil guys today for a Halloween display, and I’m starting to worry that my apartment will be engulfed in them by Christmas. There are so many of your other patterns that I’m dying to try now too! Thanks for sharing =) x
