Halloween is our complete favorite holiday here at Wicked Chickens Yarn, so we thought long and hard about what Halloween patterns to bring out this year. We decided on our Pocket Zombie (which is also available in our shop) and we felt like adorable bats were a close second for an awesome Halloween knitting project. Hence, this cute little kit. Also, knitted pocket bats are way less scary than real bats......How cute are these guys going to look tucked in with all of your other Halloween decorations?!!

These bewitching little bats are perfect to give as gifts, or even to make up as party favors (if you can manage to part with the adorableness once you are finished!). A nice sugar-free treat for a traditionally sugar-fueled holiday! Plus this is a quick and fun knit and you will find yourself making a whole house full of little knitted nocturnal friends! You can also use the pattern to make multiple sizes of bat depending on what weight yarn you use, as illustrated in the last photo. We know, you didn't think this kit could get any better, but it totally did once you found out you could knit all kinds of sizes of bats. That "Buy Now" button is right there up to your right...

Gauge: You pick! Simply knit with your choice of yarn on needles 2-3 sizes smaller than called for to get a tight knit fabric your stuffing won't show through.

Needles: You pick! A 40" or longer circular needle (for Magic Loop Method) in a size right for your yarn.

Notions: Scissors, tapestry needle, beginning of the round stitch marker (removable or closed), optional row counter, 8 removable stitch markers, stuffing, and a set of safety eyes (or other eye choice such as buttons or scrap yarn for embroidery).

Finished size: Your finished size will depend on what weight yarn you use. The sock weight yarn samples measure about 3” tall with 6mm safety eyes. The worsted weight sample measure approximately 4.5” tall with 9mm safety eyes.
