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.

Frankenstein Scrubby

Frankenstein scrubby

September is here, so I feel safe posting Halloween designs. I know some people get annoyed at stores who put their holiday merchandise out too early, but as crafters, we need it early! Am I right? There are so many things to make and never enough time. I usually start making Christmas gifts in January. In fact, I buy gift wrap and boxes in the after-Christmas sales. That way I can wrap the presents as I finish them and not have to worry about wrapping them all in December. Anyway, one of my favorite Halloween icons is Frankenstein, so today’s free pattern is a scrubby. This little guy only took me only an hour to crochet. Because they were out of stock of the Red Heart Scrubby Yarn in the colors I needed, I went to Hobby Lobby and got Yarn Bee Scrub-ology. This yarn is a bit softer than the RH and more suitable (in my opinion) to scrubbies for the skin rather than for the kitchen. I’m looking forward to coming up with a few more scrubby designs in the future.

Scrubby measures 3.5″ x 3″.

Frankenstein’s Monster Scrubby

Frankenstein scrubby

Materials:

Yarn Bee Scrub-ology cotton yarn – 15 yards green

Cotton worsted yarn – 5 yards black

Size G (4.0 mm) crochet hook

Yarn needle

Directions:

Row 1: With green yarn, ch 13, sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across (12 sc).

Rows 2-3: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st. Ch 3 at the end of Row 3.

Row 4: Sc in 2nd ch, sc in next ch, sc in next 12 sts, work 2 chainless foundation sc (16 sc).

Row 5: Ch 1, sc in each st (16 sc)

Row 6: Ch 1, turn, sl st over first 2 sts, sc in next 16 sts, leave remaining 2 sts unworked (16 sc).

Rows 7-8: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st. Fasten off green.

Rows 9-10: With black yarn, ch 1, turn, sc in each st.

Row 11: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st with 2 sc in last st. Turn to crochet down the side, sc in end of next 2 rows, change to green, sc down side and around ear with 2 sc in end of Row 1. Sc in each unused loop of Row 1 with 2 sc in last loop. Sc across opposite side and ear, changing to black yarn for last 2 rows. Sc in same st as first st of Row 11. Join with sl st. Fasten off black. Weave in all ends.

EYES:

With black yarn, ch 2 (or magic circle), work 5 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Join with sl st. Fasten off leaving 6” length. Sew eyes to face at Rows 6-7.

Mouth:

Use black yarn to embroider mouth.
