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.
25 yards scrubby yarn:
Size G (4.0 mm) crochet hook
Measurements: Approximately 6.5” wide by 2.5” tall
NOTE: Using Yarn Bee Scrub-ology yarn, bat measures ¼” larger than when using Red Heart Scrubby Sparkle
