A Spooky Free Pattern for Halloween: Cubic Right-Angle Weave Bats
It’s my favorite time of year! The leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and it’s almost time to carve pumpkins and drink spiced apple cider. I love everything spooky and all of the creativity that comes along with Halloween. I always have lots of ideas and aspirations to make something cute and creepy out of beads. This year I finally made it a reality—and I’m here to share it with you as a free cubic right-angle weave bat pattern!
Get your free pattern, A Little Batty by Meredith Steele.
These adorable little cubic right-angle weave bats can be used in a variety of ways. I stitched a small loop onto the back (sort of like a button shank) so that they can be hung as a pendant or earrings. They can also be a little ornament to hang on my Halloween tree. (Wait, doesn’t everybody decorate a Halloween tree? Hehe.) You can scale the pattern up to make a bigger bat if your little heart desires. Just add the same number of cubes to each segment and your bat should grow without becoming distorted.
If you have experience with cubic right-angle weave, you can stitch up a bat in no time flat. But if you’re new to the stitch and want to try something short and sweet to whet your appetite, this free pattern fits the bill. By Halloween you’ll have a whole cloud of bats to call your own!
