Bat Trick or Treat Bag Crochet Pattern

Halloween is such a fun time to crochet! Last year I designed treat bags in the shape of Witch’s Hats and Eyeballs. This year bats seem to be popular, so I made a cute little Bat Treat Bag.

(24 sc). Join with sl st.

Rnd 18: *Sc, ch 1, skip 1 sc,* repeat around. Join with sl st. Fasten off.

Drawstring: Make a chain 12″ long and knot both ends. Pull through loops made in Rnd 18.

WINGS: (Make 2)

Row 1: Ch 14, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 5 ch, 3 sc in next ch, sc in next 6 ch (15 sc).

Row 2: Ch 1, turn, dec, sc in next 5 sts, 3 sc in next st, sc in next 5 sts, dec (15 sc).

Weave in all ends.

Sew or glue on google eyes. Fill your bat with candy!

Bat Scrubby Crochet Pattern

bat scrubby

Because of the popularity of the Bat Mask Mate Crochet Pattern that I published last year, I reworked it a little bit to make a slightly smaller bat using Scrubby yarn. These cute little bats can do double duty by adding a little spookiness to your kitchen decor and also being useful when you wash dishes. Red Heart and Yarn Bee both have soft cotton Scrubby yarn that can be used to make bats as facial scrubbers. The Scrubby Sparkle yarn is great to make a bat for your dishes.
