The Justice League: Batman – Crochet Pattern

Batman - Crochet PatternIn a previous post, I introduced to you my youngest son’s favorite superhero, The Flash, now I would like to introduce to you my oldest son’s favorite superhero, Batman. Yes, we are a household of DC Comics fans. Not that we don’t love the Marvel superheroes, too, we just love DC Comic and the Justice League a little more. My son has loved Batman for a long time. He has been Batman for Halloween more times than I can count, and even into his pre-teen years he has taken to acquiring as much Batman decor and attire as he can manage. Of course, as siblings go, I can’t do for one without doing for the other as well. So, I introduce to you, my crocheted version of Batman. Enjoy!

    How lovely, do you have any plans on doing a Spider-Man pattern? I know a little boy who is crazy about Spider-Man and would love a doll of the same.

      I plan to make the rest of the Justice League characters that appear in their upcoming movie and possibly after I finish those, I would like to create some Marvel characters which Spiderman would be sure to make that list. Thank you for your suggestion! 🙂
