Batman lovey / security blanket

Batman-loveyI have decided to translate all my crochet patterns into English. I cannot promise that the English version will be published at the same time as the Danish however I will do my best to get the pattern translated quickly.

The first pattern is a crocheted Batman security blanket. I made the pattern while I was pregnant with my son. His cousin got a Superman security blanket (the pattern will be translated soon).

It is not allowed to sell the pattern. However, it is allowed to sell finished crocheted Batman security blankets, as long as you always refer to www.mrsmom.dk and/or @MrsMom.dk.

I have updated the pattern.  There are now two versions of the head. In version 1, the head is round like a ball while version 2 is more flat.

    Hello, I love your Batman lovey. Do you have any other pictures that show different angles. I think a picture of the back would help clarify some of the pattern. Thank you so much. 🙂

    • mrsmom

      I actually don’t but I can find the one I made for my son and take som pictures. I will email them to you later this week 🙂

    Can you elaborate a bit more on the step right after stuffing the head? I’ve read that paragraph about 10 times, and am not understanding.

    If I’ve mounted the black yarn in one of the 25 stitches on the back of the head, what am I seeing to the back of the head?

    • mrsmom

      Hi Sheri,

      If you look at row 14 you have created a “nose” with the “hdc, sc, tr, sc, hdc”. If you say this is the center of the front, you have to find the stitch that is on the center on the back. From here you count and mount your black yarn so you can crochet back and forth to create a “flap” to create the back of the black mask.

      Did that clarify your question? 🙂

    Thank you for your reply. It did somewhat clarify. Is the “flap” something that would hang down and cover the back of the head, the beige part of the head? Of so, where am I sewing to the back of the head? Do you have a picture of the back of the head?

    • mrsmom

      Sorry for the late answer. Yes it will be a “flap” you sew on to the beige part of the head. Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures, but I sew it on with simple stitches like I do with the ears, arm etc.
