This didn't take a huge leap of imagination...
A nice simple amigurumi keyring - the Batman Bat! I got the inspiration for this while watching 'The Dark Knight Rises', and it spawned a whole range of characters, to be posted too. On top of that, I've arrange to sell some at a local gallery - here's hoping they prove popular! But cos I'm lovely here's how to make your own.

  • How to stitch a knit or crochet keyring. Batman Bat Keyring - Step 1
    Step 1

    he Essentials:

    Hook: 3.5mm

    Wool: Batman: Black, grey, yellow, peach. Robin: Red, green, yellow, peach, black.

    Also needed: Batman: black felt. Robin: Yellow and black felt.

    Finished Size: 2” tall, 2-3” wide.

    Terms:

    CH = Chain

    SC = Single Crochet

    INC = Increase

    DEC = Decrease

    NB: I start my amigurumi using CH2 for simplicity, but if you prefer you can use a magic ring.

    The head and body are crocheted in one piece, in the round with continuous spirals.

    Step 5

    Pull the cowl onto Batman’s head (this will take a bit of squeezing and squashing until it looks right).

    Sew around the brim using the yarn tail to secure.

    Step 6

    Take the tail up through the head to sew on the nose and mouth (you can see it’s designed to look like a bat, NOT a human). Remember to make sure the jog line is at the back!

    With any remaining yarn, take it to the top of the head to create the keyring loop.

    Decoration

    To finish off your Batman, grab the felt and cut a small bat motif and a large pair of wings as shown. Cutting the wings is easiest if you make a template first. You only need to do half since they symmetrical - fold your felt in half, cut round your half template and you’ll get two matching sides. You can do the same with the motif too.

    Sew or use a glue gun to attach them in place - the motif on his chest, and the wings on his back over the jog line. Add your keyring, and Batman is finished!
