I will not lie... it's very large. It is the size of my queen bed. It took me forever, but I think it came out great. There is a small problem in one of his ears, where I think i shifted the pattern outward. By this time, I didn't want to deal with it anymore so I left it be. Perhaps you can find it, and if you do, just let me know!

**Updated on February 26th to include revisions by dedicated readers and a link to a google doc with the original chart that I used to make this blanket- see notes below for further explanations!**

Batman Blanket Crochet Pattern

Materials needed:

7-8 Skeins of Black Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Red Heart)

2 skeins of Red Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Red Heart)

a very small amount of White Worsted Weight Yarn (again, I used Red Heart)

Size "H" crochet Hook

*I only used about 2 skeins of red heart, but I actually used parts of four different skeins because there were certain points of the blanket where it was helpful to have more than just two skeins going at once.*

Color will be written out with the number of stitches, followed by the color notation in parentheses, ie (B) = Black or (R) = Red or (W) = White

Turn at the end of each row.

Pattern:

Start with Black, chain 194

Finish Off, Weave in Ends.

*note: if some of your edges are too "cut" for your taste, try fleshing them out a little while you weave in your ends! I did that for mine and it worked out great!

{edits made to correct rows 38-45 on 5/13. There are still errors in the following rows: 59-61, 80, 88, 110}

{edits made to correct rows 59-61, 80, 88, 101, 108 and 110 made on 2/26/14. I think this corrects all of the known errors in the pattern. If you find more, please let me know!

Also, i have uploaded the original chart that I used for this pattern. You can see that there are some subtle variations in color and this is where I would work half the square (as you work 2 stitches for each square across a single row) in one color and the other half in the other. With the chart, you can use your own judgement. Enjoy!

Batman Crochet/Knit Chart

Great pattern, thank you for sharing it! One question though- what size hook did you use?

ReplyDeleteim going to make this patteren and im going to use a j hook i think it's is all one the size you want the patteren to be.

DeleteHi, I am making this blanket and I am stuck on row 15, the last set of stitches it says to do 50 dc with black but it leaves 21 stitches not worked. Am I to assume that the last 21 stitches are to be done with black? My partner is a HUGE batman fan and I want to complete this by Valentines day but I am super stuck...let me know...

ReplyDeleteThanks, Becca

p.h.a.t@aol.com

@witknitter- totally forgot to put that in there, but I used an H. I've updated the pattern- Thanks!

ReplyDelete@Becca- I looked back at my original pattern and realized there was a typo on rows 15 and 16, it's not you! I have corrected that to add in the omitted stitches. Thanks!

on row 9 you have to ch 3 in black but we finish in red do we change color here thats what i am assuming...it just threw me off that we change to black lol thanks for the reply

ReplyDeleteyes, you are correct, it is a change back to black. :)

ReplyDeleteI can't wait to start this project! Could you elaborate a bit more on what yarn you used though? I tried to find it on the Red Heart website, but there are multiple options, but the yardage on the skeins differ significantly. What yardage were your skeins?

ReplyDeleteNo problem, I used the Red Heart Super Saver, in Cherry Red (http://www.redheart.com/yarn/super-saver-regular/cherry-red) and Black (http://www.redheart.com/yarn/super-saver-regular/black). They are both no dye lot and 160 yards per skein. The white was also Red Heart Super Saver in a negligible amount (like maybe 3-6 yards). I hope that helps!

DeleteIt does! Thank you!

DeleteI can't wait to start on this! Now, this might be a silly question but what does the BACK of the blanket look like? I'm curious how all the connecting pieces as you switch from red to black look and if they're likely to get snagged. (I'm wondering if it'd be worthwhile to crochet a separate solid piece and stitch them together?)

ReplyDeleteAfter you have woven in the ends, the back of the blanket looks like a mirror version of the front side. Batman is just flipped from one side to another. It works up like a flat blanket.

DeleteI have worked up through row 12. I am having a hard time because there should be 191 attached in each row, but when I got to the end of row the pattern says to work 6 DC in red. However, I only had room to work 5. I have counted the attached over and over and they add up, but now I am worried that there is a problem with the rest of the Afghan now that the pattern is compromised. Help me please!

ReplyDeleteThere should be 192 in each row. Also, there are errors as noted at the end of the pattern. I still haven't gone back to try and find where they are, but will be posting the actual grid once I can figure out how to do so. :)

DeleteMy apologies...there should be 192 in each row. I have worked past the problem. I had to accept that the bottom on the blanket won't be perfect, but once I crochet a border on the blanket it won't be noticeable. I am currently plugging in the color on a graph in excel to try to find the other errors in the pattern before I work through them. I can't wait to see your grid compared to mine to see where I messed up! Thank you for sharing a really cool pattern. I can't wait to see my finished product!

ReplyDeleteI Love this pattern an want to make for my husband. I have one question. Did you cut the yarn when you changed colors or just drop to the side? Thanks!!

ReplyDeleteIf I make this using just SC do you think it would be a better size for a twin size bed? My daughter loves Batman and has chosen this design just because of the name. She thinks it was designed just for her, because her name is Lilu!

ReplyDeleteI love this pattern and would like to do it for my son but I'm wondering if there is a way too make it for a twin or full size bed?

ReplyDeleteOn row 9 it says: R9: ch 3 (B), dc (B), 6 dc (R), 56 dc (B), 4 dc (R), 124 dc (B).

ReplyDeleteAfter chaining 3, how many dc in black? If each row is supposed to have 192, then I assume it would be 2. I just want to double check. Thanks!

ch3 in black, dc in black, then move to red. It counts as two stitches, but you aren't actually working a dc twice. does that help?

DeleteSo are you dropping the yarn or cutting it?

ReplyDeleteIt seems like its been a while since anyone commented here but, I'm hoping someone can clarify how we can use the graph to help us? That is, I notice that the written pattern has a beginning ch of 194, which becomes a continuos 191 across; however, the graphed pattern only goes 96 stiches across. Being under the impression that graphs are usually on a 1 to 1 ratio should I assume that the graph simply creates a smaller afghan? Or am I missing something about reading or using graphs? Thanks for answering and sorry if this is an obvious question. I am just starting to get into graphghans and want to better understand how they are made.

ReplyDeleteWhen you're working dc to complete a graph, you'll use a 2:1 ratio with the graph. That is, you'll use 2 dc to fill a square instead of just 1. 96x2=192 st across. If you would like a smaller blanket, you could use the same graph and just put 1 sc in each square, for a 1:1 ratio. :)

DeleteDo you count the ch 3 at the end of the rows as a stitch?

ReplyDeleteI personally do, however that can be a matter of preference as long as you stick to your same decision for the whole blanket. :)

ReplyDeleteHow are you changing colors? Are you caring the red through each row or are you dropping it? I read someone say that it is the same on each side, so the red is being carried? Doesn't it show through the black?
