Introduction: How to Crochet a Super-Mini Version of the Batman Symbol With the Oval
A few years ago, I decided to try to make my own crochet pattern for a Batman blanket. After finally figuring it out and posting a tutorial for it online, I was asked by many to create a smaller version of the symbol so that it could be put on hats and the like. Going by eye, I did. The mini symbol measured roughly five inches wide, but I could not for the life of me figure out how to crochet an oval for it. The following year, I decided to update my crochet tutorials and this time, I'd try to make an oval for the mini Batman symbol. After creating the oval, I decided to re-do the bat part as well. After all, who wants a giant Batman bat to stretch around the entire front of their child's head? Now that I've figured out a better pattern, you can watch it here!
In order to create this Batman project, you will need a 3.75mm crochet hook, a bit of black yarn, a bit of yellow yarn, and some patience. You will also need to know how to create a single crochet foundation chain with an adjustable slip knot, how to single crochet, and how to create a slip stitch. If you follow the instructions in the video, the oval (and your finished bat symbol) should measure roughly 4.5" wide. Enjoy!
