How to Make Halloween Bat Crochet Garland
1. Make bat appliques, block all the pieces as necessary.
2. For my garland, I’ve made seven bats. You can always make your garland shorter or longer and adjust the number of pieces as needed.
3. Making a garland.
Crochet a chain. The length of the chain depends on how long you want your garland to be. My chain is about 75” long.
Leave on each end about 5-7 inches for tying the garland, then arrange the pieces.
Using a sewing needle and matching thread, carefully sew each bat to the string. Fasten off all the ends.
Now your crochet bat garland is complete!
