How to Crochet a Super-Mini Version of the Batman Symbol With the Oval


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!

Hello! I'm sorry you had difficulty with this. I tried to make it as small as possible, so the holes are very tiny--I definitely understand any frustration, as I had some when I was creating the pattern. I do have a slightly larger version which measures roughly five inches wide, but it does not have the oval. If you're interested, you can check it out here:
