See diagram A.1.

Bat is worked back and forth with beginning from bottom of body and worked up towards the ears.
Work 4 chain stitches on hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 with black or gray blue and form a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch. Continue back and forth according to diagram A.1. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!

To make the bat hang nicely and be rigid it can be dipped in sugar water or colorless soda and left flat to dry. Pull a sewing thread through one ear and hand the bat in this thread.
