Valentine’s Day Bat Amigurumi

valentine bat

Is everyone ready for the cold weather that is about to sweep over most of the United States? My pantry is stocked, and I have plenty of firewood, so I’m ready for some cozy crochet time. It’s February, so it’s time to work on Valentine’s Day gifts. One of my bat patterns from Halloween is still a consistent download, so I came up with a cute little bat with heart-shaped wings and heart-shaped ears. This little sweetie only takes a few hours (I made one in an evening) and will make the perfect gift for your littles or for your significant other. I used acrylic yarn, but feel free to use up your stash of Valentine colors. Stay warm everyone!
