Batman Amigurumi Free Pattern

Free Batman Amigurumi Pattern by Tales of Twisted FibersI made a promise on the grave of my parents that I would rid this city of the evil that took their lives. By day, I am Bruce Wayne, billionaire philanthropist. At night, criminals, a cowardly and superstitious lot, call me… Batman.” – Hush, Chapter 12: The End | story: Jeph Loeb | art: Jim Lee

Well, you know what! Batman dropped by my place today and he said to tell you he says hi! I was expecting to him to be a lot bigger and well, you know, muscular but the fella turned out to be just a little over 6.5 inches tall! And slightly rounder around the tum! Well, Christopher Nolan, you lied—Batman doesn’t look like Christian Bale at all!

UPDATE [December 30, 2014]: How to Join Batman’s Legs

Some of you told me the instructions for joining Batman’s legs are a bit fuzzy. [Insert sound of my heart breaking here]. So I’ll try and explain it a bit differently with a sample photograph.   join-legs--Tales of Twisted Fibers

Hold both legs together. Make sure the shoes face away from you. With the ‘working’ piece on the right and the second leg on the left, find and mark the stitch on the second (left) leg that would be the middle of the left inner thigh. Insert hook in this stitch and make an sc. Now sc in the remaining 14 stitches of the left leg. Next, sc in all 15 stitches on the right leg. This joins your amigurumi’s legs. The combined stitch count of the joined legs should be 30 (15 stitches per leg).

I hope this makes the instructions clear(er). 😀

    I’m having trouble downloading the batman pattern. When I click on download, all I get is a page with a print and download button, but they won’t do anything. What am I doing wrong?

    • Twisted Fibers says:

      I just checked the link and it seems to be working fine. You’re probably seeing blank pages because the server is taking a little time to load the images. But just in case it’s a browser incompatibility issue, and to play it safe, I’ll be mailing you the pattern in a bit.

    Hola…he descargado el patron pero no lo puedo traducir al español. Es posible darme la traduccion? Es un lindo diseño que deseo hacer. Gracias.

  10. Tierni Moore says:

    I can’t seem to print or download your batman pattern. Is there anyway that you could e-mail it to me? My nephew really wants him for his birthday.

    • Tales of Twisted Fibers says:

      I hope you received the pattern I sent by email. The problem you faced was due to the huge number of pattern downloads that maxed out my monthly bandwidth limit. All the patterns are now stored on WordPress itself. So hopefully there shouldn’t be anymore problem. 🙂

  11. Dawn Perks says:

    When I click to download I get a page asking me to install some download software. Is there anywhere else I can find your pattern? Ravelry, maybe? Thanks 🙂

    Hi Serah,

    I don’t know if it’s because it’s late and I’m tired, but I’m having a difficult time understanding the pattern. The first part of the body, where you join the legs together doesn’t make sense to me. When it says to insert hook into the 2 stitches that meet in the center and make an sc, and continue making stitches in rem 29 sts. How exactly am I doing this? I hope my question makes sense. Thanks!

  13. Megan says:

    Thanks for this amazing pattern – I’ve made 5 batmans and adapted it for a spiderman and a Robin and now working on a superman for my sons and friend’s children. Never had an issue with the joining of the legs!

  14. Anonymous says:

    the first sc connect 2 legs together. we lost one st. so for this round only has 29 st. do you inc one st for a total of 30sts? and where? at front or back?

  15. Karen says:

    Yours is the cutest Batman out there — thanks so much for sharing the pattern! I’ve been having trouble finding affordable sock yarn in these colors. What kind did you use?

  16. Holli says:

    thanks for the pattern! It is adorable! I’m just working on the head and on round 16 when you change to skin color I am so confused on what you mean by join to visible stitch from round 14? I have no idea where to attach the skin color. Hope you can explain it a little better for me. Thanks!

    • Tales of Twisted Fibers says:

      In Round 14, you work single crochet stitches as you would normally do. However, in Round 15, you work only on the front loops of Round 14, which leaves the back loops free for you to work on in the next round, i.e. Round 16. So in Round 16, you join the yarn in one of these free back loops and sc around.

      I hope this makes it clear. Have fun hooking up your little Batman!

  17. Lori Harach says:

    any tips for adding the “nose” to batman. i don’t see any instructions for that in the pattern. thanks! he is adorable!

    • Tales of Twisted Fibers says:

      There is no nose. LOL! But when you work an hdc, dc, tr, dc, hdc in Round 15, it creates a triangular ‘flap’ on his mask right over the area where his nose is supposed to be. So that takes care of the missing nose problem. 🙂

  18. Jennifer Bremner says:

    Thanks for a great pattern! I admire your talent. I just finished him and he turned out so cute. I added a little cape. Thanks again for sharing.

  19. Maria Vazquez says:

    Hi! I’m about to start the flesh color of the head. Round 15 only says to work in FLO when making the five stitches in the parentheses. Then Round 16 says to work in the visible loops. Are the slip stitches also worked in the front loops only? When working on the WS of the head, does that mean I’m stitching from the inside out?

    Thanks 🙂

    • Tales of Twisted Fibers says:

      Thank you. I’m glad you like him. 🙂 And yes, you’re right, Batman is copyrighted by DC comics. And while the copyright holder may not sue you for creating “fan art” (such as this crocheted Batman) for non commercial purposes, selling it will definitely be viewed as copyright violation.

  20. Ema says:

    Hi, thx for this great pattern! 😊
    Just a little question, whenous you start the first round of the arm you say that you will have 12 stitches but when you finish round 8 of the glove you end with 18? How can i have 12 stitches at the end?

  21. Ema says:

    Hi m’y Batman is read’y since a while but I don t have eyes and can t find them do you have an idea of how to crochet them? How can i post a picture of my création? Thank you very much!

  22. Anonymous says:

  23. Maureen says:

    I am new to this and don’t understand some of the abbreviations such as BLO, FLO, FO.
    Am I missing something?

  24. Cynthia Manderson says:

    Will you please send me the pattern. Nothing is opening when I try to download, I know it is prob my tablet. But if you can, I would love to try this pattern. Thank you and great job!

  25. Trisha says:

    Thank you so much for creating and sharing this pattern. I have made several versions for my nephews, nieces, and cousins and everyone loves them! Is there a hashtag I could include to tag you?

  26. Jenn says:

    Thank for for the free batman pattern. I’m having trouble with the arms though. The glove ends on 18 st but the arm starts with 12st. Is there supposed to be a decrease somewhere that I missed?

    • Tales of Twisted Fibers says:

      Hi Jenn! The stitch counts are different because we are first working only on the front loops for gloves and then only on the back loops for arms.

      If you look closely at instructions for Round 8 of Gloves, you’ll see we are working only on the front loops to make the cuff of the glove. The increases made on the front loops of this round brings the stitch count to 18 from 12.

      However, the back loops of this round are not worked on; hence the stitch count remains unchanged at 12. When we start working on the Arm (Round 1), we join the yarn (and work on) on these very back loops of the glove (Round 8) that were left untouched earlier.

      I hope this makes it clear. 🙂

  27. Mike says:

    Made it made it love it!

    Improvised and stitched eyes and also made a tie on cape.

    Thank you for the pattern.

    Where do I post pictures?

  28. Angela Diaz says:

    I am just starting this pattern and just need a clarification. On the boots, round 2 states sc 4, inc in the next 3 st. Does that mean to increase, if so how many stitches per stitch?
