I’m really quite proud of my newest addition to my aKNITomical line: Chiroptera (more commonly known as the bat!)

Bats are not just for Halloween decorations. They are an integral part of a healthy ecosystem, and they help keep the insect population in check. Beyond being badass flying mammals, they’re also pretty darn cute.

To knit this bat you will need the following skills:

  • long-tail cast on
  • bind off
  • knit
  • purl
  • increase
  • decrease
  • I-cord
  • needle felting

Pattern difficulty level: Intermediate
