Holy free pattern, Batman!!

This Friday yet another awesome superhero movie of this summer comes out, The Dark Knight Rises, and you know I’m here to make an equally awesome pattern to commemorate it!

So some of you may know the little bat pattern I posted last year, well I used that pattern with a few differences to make today’s free pattern of a simple Batman Logo, but that’s not all…

Iron man’s not the only one with some sweet gloves, and do to the popularity of my Iron Man Fingerless Mittens posted last month, I decided to make some Batman Ninja versions of them!

You can get the Gauntlet pattern for $3 on Ravelry, Craftsy, or Etsy, or by simply clicking –>HERE<–

Pattern available after the jump…


Lion Brand Cotton/Lily Sugar’n Cream
/Lion Brand Cotton-Ease
(basically any 100% cotton works)
Crochet Hook-Size G6 4.00mm
Needle to sew in ends with


-sc = Single Crochet
-hdc = Half-double Crochet
-dc = Double Crochet
-m.p = Mini Picot (ch 2, sl.st in first ch)
-Ch = Chain

-Rnd = Round

Ch 16
Rnd 1: Skip first 2 chs, Hdc 1, m.p, hdc 1 in next two, sc 1, m.p, sc 1 in next three, m.p, sc 1 in next three, m.p, sc 1, hdc 1 in next two, m.p, hdc 1, sl.st 1 in same as last. Turn upside down and ch 2 (15)
Rnd 2: *On backside. (In where you put the last hdc and sl.st) Dc 1, hdc 1 in next two, sc 1 in next three, m.p, sc 1 in next two, m.p, sc 1 in next three, hdc 1 in next two, dc 1 (14)

Cut and sew the end into the bat to hide it.

I sewed the logo onto an oval and then onto a Beanie. You can get the pattern for the beanie here and buy the Batman beanie here.

    thank you so much for this! my 3 y/o is batman obsessed & i have been trying to figure out a batman logo for his winter hat! thank you!

  2. Cassie.Wright

    I am a little confused on what you mean by turning it upside down and on the backside. Would it be possible for you to explain it a little more in detail? I would really appreciate it. I'm trying to make this for a birthday gift.

  3. Louis

    Well, after you crochet on the main side of the chains and get to the end, you basically sl.st in the same as the last hdc and just turn your bat upsidedown and continue on from there. Its just basically continuing on the backsides of the chs. Let me know if this helps or not. If it doesn't I'll be happy to make a video or post some extra photos! Let me know. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the question!

  4. Me

    At the beginning after you chain 16, when you do the hdc, do you chain 2 extra to get the height or do you do the hdc in the 3 chain from hook?

  5. Louis

    Good question! I actually forgot to put that part so thanks for asking. You don't ch any more, you just hdc in the 2nd ch from the hook. I'll fix it though! Thanks again!

  6. Louis

    Hey Sue,

    Maybe you can use your 35 years of experience to provide me some constructive criticism instead of belittling the work that I have put much time and effort into and provide for free. Just sayin'..


  7. Kelly

    I just made the bat and am so excited to attach it to the hat that I made for my brother for Christmas. I don't see the "pattern" for the yellow oval though. Do you happen to have it available? I could do a search on ravelry or something, but I thought I would ask you first! Thank you so much for posting this pattern!!

  8. Louis

    Hey Kelly! So I do have a pattern for the oval, I just haven't posted it yet. I'll post it as a new pattern for you this week! I needed to post a new pattern anyhow haha, so this will be perfect! If you want it sooner (like nowish) send me an email to [email protected] and I'll send it to you!

    Thanks for asking!

  9. dina

    Wow! Uncalled for Sue!! Shame on you! At your age, hopefully you would have learned manners, & the expression "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all! And if you were having issues, your 35 years of experience should have helped you figure it out! Louis, I have been crocheting for since I was 8, & this pattern was awesome! My boys love all of the cool stuff we have whipped up–mustaches, iron man gloves & batman hats! Keep up the good work my dear!

    I have tried this pattern twice and it still does not look like yours. I have wrote it out on paper and you have 19 stitches in the first round. I tried it with chaining 16 and then I tried it with chaining 20, it almost looks like a bat. What am I doing wrong?

  11. louis mensinger

    Hey Deb!

    So I think I know what's going on. I think you're counting the m.p (mini picots) as a separate stitch and putting them in the foundation chs. For the m.ps you should be chaining 2 directly after the last st and sl.sting into the back loop of the first ch made, not in the foundation round though. If you count without those stitches you should get 14 (not including the final sl.st). I made a slight correction in the pattern to account for the 2 chs in the beginning that you skip to start (a little typo that I've never noticed until now, thanks!). I hope this helps. If you'd like to, email me at [email protected] and maybe we can figure out what's going on in greater detail.

    Thanks for the question and I hope this finds you well!

    P.S. Sorry for the delayed response.

    Hi, I have a question on your batman cuffs. When I get to Rnd 3-23 I am confused. It says to pull loop through first ch made – ? what chain are you talking about? The it says to sc 1 in bk st, pull loop through next ch and continue what does that mean. Did I pull the yarn all the way through the first sc, and I am starting another? Please explain what you mean, and was I suppose to connect any of these? Please help. Thanks.

  13. louis mensinger

    Hey Nancy,

    Sorry for the confusion. Basically, you pull through the very first ch made in the base chs before Rnd 1. You're basically seeming the cuff together here by pulling the loop through each ch made in the base and sc along the back sts in Rnd 23 as you go. Does that help? If you need more help email me at [email protected] and we can figure it out.


  14. Nancy M

    Hi Louis, Thanks for getting back to me. Only that doesn't help, you are telling me how to connect it when I get to round 23 and I am trying to do round 3 – 24, but that is okay, I just made it all sc and it doesn't look bad. I did email you too, but I didn't get a response. I figured you must be busy or something. I am glad that you are well thank you for getting back to me. If I get confused about anything else I will try emailing you again or I will leave a message here.
    Thanks again, Nancy

  15. louis mensinger

    Hey Nancy, Sorry about that, I thought I replied to your email :(. In the pattern For Rnd 3-23 it says repeat Rnd 2, so you just ch 1 and sc 25 in the back stitches. I think you may have accidentally gone ahead or something. Sorry for the confusion!

  16. Nancy M

    Hi,Thanks that is what I ended up doing.
    I just didn't understand the pattern because for Rnd 3-23 it says Rnd 3- 23 : Repeat (24)
    so I thought it meant to do the stitches for round 24 and repeat it to round 24. When actually you wanted me to repeat Rnd 2. It doesn't say to Repeat Rnd 2 on the pattern she gave me to make this for her daughter. Thanks for your help I really appreciate it.

    Well, I've been crocheting for like 35 days and even I figured it out after like 15 minutes. Just sayin'..
    Yikes, the manners on some people. I'd like to say thanks for taking the time to create something amazing and to share it with the world. I was thrown by the m.p. at first just because I've never heard of it, but mine came out just fine after I realized what I needed to do. Thanks again!

  18. Jennifer Murphy

    I don't understand what to do after pulling up a loop when connecting the cuff together. Also, am I supposed to turn at the beginning of each rnd for the spikes? They look nothing like they should. Help

  19. Chandra Berg

    My daughter saw this logo and asked me to make her a batman hat, she is in high school and told all of her friends, now there are several requests. It is awesome you can create like this.

    Hello, my name is Miranda,I'm 15 and i'm a beginner at crocheting. My brother just got a tattoo of a baby batman in tribute to an unborn child that him and his fiancee recently lost. He called the baby appropriately, BatBaby. My big brother absolutely LOVES Batman, and can't get enough.And i look up to him so much and love him with everything i have. I just want to show him in a Bat-tastic way. I was trying to make a batman logo and put it on a big pillow that i have crocheted for him (as he loves his sleep too)
    I just can't seem to properly make the logo, as i have tried many times. I have noticed that i am more of a visual learner and i was wondering if you could make a video of how to crochet the batman logo? Maybe on youtube, or even just contact me and send it to me directly if you don't want it on youtube? i believe it would really help me.

    Prettyyyyyyyyyyyy please?
    Xoxo ~ Miranda

    Thanks for the great pattern. I had to do it twice because the first time I messed it up the first time. The second time I decided to work into the back bumps of the chain so that when I turned it I would be able to see the chain better. It also helped to get rid of some of the looseness and holes so it looked more like yours. Somehow the left side of my bat is longer than the right but it still looks good. And ignore any negative comments. I have only been crocheting for a year and I really had no problem following your pattern. Sometimes there are people who can never be satisfied with anything. Thanks again, my nephew is going to love his hat πŸ™‚

    Thanks SO much for this pattern. I've only been crocheting about 3 months and I got this first try!! I don't know what is wrong with Sue and her 35 years experience, but I think you wrote the pattern quite perfectly! I'm going to email you for the oval pattern if you don't mind. I looked to see if you had posted it after but that was over a year ago so I may have missed it. Thanks again, my nephew will LOVE his hat for Christmas πŸ˜€

  23. Birdie1970

    Thanks so much for sharing this! I had to try it a couple of times to get it to look right. All of the points on mine were tilting to one side, maybe because I'm a lefty, but I added 1 ch to each picot & then minde came out okay. My nephew will love his hat! Thank you!!

  24. Ashley Fernandez
