The first unsurprising thing I will say on this page is that I like bats. They are spectacularly odd little beasts and I find them fascinating.
The second unsurprising thing I will say is that I get a good many search hits for knitting patterns featuring bats. (With a subtitle like 'do bats knit?' I don't know what else you would expect). Herewith follows a short and entirely incomplete list of bat-related knitting patterns on the web. If you are looking for a more comprehensive assortment of bat-themed knitting projects, I suggest flying over to Ravelry (echolocation not required) and using the excellent pattern search tools there. I try to keep the links here up-to-date but sometimes things slip; therefore I've included the Ravelry links for the patterns (when possible) to keep a more stable address available.
Patterns marked with a * are ones I have knit myself and can recommend.
