Our older daughter was born on Halloween so we celebrate this holiday with lots of bats, ghosts and spiders. I-cord and slip stitch crochet top-work detail the delicate bat wing bones and provide support after hanging. My husband is working on adding movement with a small motor so the wings can flap. I will need to add some additional rings and guide wires to the wings for the movement. A diagram is included to assist in placement of top work. After felting, the bat is 7 ½ by 19 inches. A couple pieces of scrap felt and oval beads complete the eyes. The entire project took a couple of hours to knit and about a day to dry.
Photos shown in Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride, also great in Cascade 220.
