Batman lovey / security blanket – free crochet pattern

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.

It is not allowed to sell the pattern. However, it is allowed to sell finished crocheted products, as long as you always refer to www.rikkelyngholm.com  and/or @rikkelyngholm

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.

Batman lovey

    Hello, thanks for allowing me to use it but I decided not too. =) But I do have a question about the pattern. In the blanket part at row 12, it’s saying to start with dc then increase then start at line 2? I’m confused. Can you help?

    • Rikke Lyngholm

      You keep increasing by 1 so round 12 would be:

      1 dc. In next 4 dc from previous round
      2 dc, 2 ch, 2 dc – in ch from previous round
      1 dc in next 4 dc from previous round
      Skip 2 dc
      *1 dc in next 4 dc
      2 dc, 2 ch, 2 dc – in ch from previous round
      1 dc in next 4 dc
      Skip 2 dc * Repeat the whole round

    It will used on Facebook in Sweet Dollar Deals Boutique Auction. I am just wanting to use the item as an example. It will be an item someone purchases by way of auction. The item they buy will be the item I create using your pattern. I usually have finished products but I was in the process of making this and ran out of time to submit my own photo. If you don’t give permission, it’s not a big deal. Thank you.

      It is okay, you can use the photo on the page you mentioned – remember to write where the pattern is from 🙂

    I was hoping I could use your Batman blanket picture in an auction. I will replicating it but I do not have it premade. So, I would like to use it as just an example of what the person would be getting. Is that okay? Thanks a bunch.

  • Hello! I love your blanket and I’m making it for my new born son. Im new to crochet but have knitted for years. I’ve picked up amigurumi quite quickly but I’m having a bit of trouble with the blanket. What are bullets? I can follow the pattern but am I lost when it comes to when and where I do the colour changes.
    I look forward to hearing from you.

    • I just looked and it was suppose to be “round 11” and not “bullet 11”. Hope that clarifies it? 🙂

  • Elese

    I absolutely love this pattern and have gotten to the last two bullets but I’m not sure that I have done this right should there be holes between each double and then a larget hole at the tip of each where its 2dc, chain 2, 2dc?

    • I am not sure which part of the pattern you are referring to? The head, the security blanket or which part? And what line(s)? 🙂

    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?

    Siden  ·  Svar på kommentar
    • 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.

    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?

    Siden  ·  Svar på kommentar
    • 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? 🙂

    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. 🙂
