Get your hooks at the ready to make these boo-tiful amigurumi bats! Ideal for the spooky season, these little bats are the perfect mix of creepy and cute!

Hello lovelies, my name is Sarah AKA CroCreate. I crochet all manner of things from gloves to toys, wall banners to afghans and put a whole lot of love into everything I make.

I live in the Midlands with my not so conventional family and take inspiration from colour and the extraordinary (I don’t do normal!) I have been crocheting for the last 10 years and have delved into the world of pattern writing to bring my fabulous creations onto the page so that you can recreate your own versions at home.

In this tutorial I show you how to make an adorable amigurumi bat!
