Batman Scarf and Beanie Pattern




I made this sweet Batman scarf for a friend and had enough yarn leftover to make a matching beanie.
The pattern for the beanie is below the scarf pattern.

 The scarf measures about 70 inches long and 10 inches wide. The length is easily adjustable if you want a shorter scarf--just start the second logo sooner.


Scarf Pattern:


Materials:
Size H crochet hook (5.00 mm)
Tapestry needle
3 skeins of black Loops & Threads Impeccable yarn
<1 skein of Bright Yellow Red Heart Super Saver yarn

Abbreviations:
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch

Notes:
This pattern is first worked from the bottom, up. The second logo is worked from the top, down. For the color change, I carried both colors and worked over the color that wasn't being used. If you have any questions about that, ask in the comments and I'll gladly explain (with pictures, if necessary!)
At the end of each row, ch 1 and turn. Change colors as indicated.

Beanie Pattern:



Notes:
I wrote this pattern after I made the beanie, so I don't know the exact amount of rows I completed before switching to the yellow yarn. I switched to yellow when the beanie was right above my ears. You can make the beanie as short of long as you like. Just keep in mind that when you switch to yellow, you're going to be adding about 3 inches to the length.

I did not make this in a continual round, so join with a sl st at the end of each round.


Make a magic circle and ch 1. Make 6 dc in the magic circle. Sl st in first ch 1 to join.

Row 1:
Ch 3 (acts as dc here and throughout). Dc in same space as join. 2 dc in each dc around. Sl st at the top of first ch 3 to join (12 dc)

Row 2:
Ch 3. *2 dc in next dc. 1 dc in next dc.* Repeat from * to * ending on 2 dc in last dc. Sl st at the top of the first ch 3 to join (18 dc)

Row 3:
Ch 3. 1 dc in next dc. *2 dc in next dc. Dc in next 2 dc.* Repeat from * to * ending on 2 dc in last dc. Sl st at the top of the first ch 3 to join (24 dc)

Row 4:
Ch 3. Dc in next 2 dc. *2 dc in next dc. Dc in next 3 dc.* Repeat from * to * ending on 2 dc in last dc. Sl st at the top of the first ch 3 to join (30 dc)

Row 5:
Ch 3. Dc in next 3 dc. *2 dc in next dc. Dc in next 4 dc.* Repeat from * to * ending on 2 dc in last dc. Sl st at the top of the first ch 3 to join (36 dc)

At this point, put the piece you have made so far on the crown of your head. Put your hands on your ears and move your hands up towards the piece to see if your fingers touch the edge of it. If they do, then skip Row 6, and continue with Row 7. If they don't (or if you know you're making this for someone who has a larger head), then continue with Row 6. If you still need to make it larger, simply increase the number of dc between each (2 dc in next dc) for each row.

Row 6:
Ch 3. Dc in next 4 dc. *2 dc in next dc. Dc in next 5 dc.* Repeat from * to * ending on 2 dc in last dc. Sl st at the top of the first ch 3 to join (42 dc)

Row 7:
Ch 3. Dc in each dc around and sl st at the top of the first ch 3 to join.

Continue Row 7 until the beanie touches the tops of your ears.

Switch to yellow yarn. If you have questions about the color change, please ask in the comments and I'll help you out!

Row 8-9:
Repeat Row 7 in yellow yarn.

Row 10-11:
Repeat Row 7 in black yarn.

Add a single crochet border around if you like. You may sell the finished project, but please reference and link this post. Please do not copy and post this pattern and claim it as your own. I'd love to see pictures of your finished product! Please let me know if you have any questions about any unclear instructions.

    1. The logo on the hat would be tricky. I haven't tried this, but first I would make the logo smaller. There are websites you can go to where you can upload a picture, and they will turn it into cross stitch image (any size you want). Then you can start the pattern based on the cross stitch image, but instead of reversing it on the turn (for scarves), you can work it one direction since you'll be working in rounds with the beanie. You would probably have to start the logo after the increases of the beanie. Hope this helps, let me know if you decide to do this and how it turns out!

      Best,

  4. I'm a novice crochet-er and I'm really excited to make this for my boyfriend since he's crazy about all things Batman. I can't wait to try out your color change technique but I'm curious how to begin. How do you make the very first color change?

    1. Justine, (nice name!)

      Before completing the single crochet before switching to yellow, pull through the last stitches with yellow. Then carry the yellow yarn and work over it, that way when you need it again, it will be right there for you to pick up. Hope this helps. Can't wait to see your finished product for your boyfriend!

      Best,

  5. Row 19 only has 37 stitches in it. Any recommendation on how to fix it?

    1. Hi Lisa,

      The only thing I can think of is maybe you missed the 2 black sc at the beginning or end of the row. Make sure all stitches are accounted for during the color change - it can be easy to lose track of them! Hope this helps, can't wait to see your finished scarf!

  6. Do you cut off the yarn when you switch colours?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, I carry the colors while I work the row. Keep the yarn attached and work over the color that isn't being used. Then when you need that color, it will be right where you left off.

  7. I'm attempting this today and the problem I'm running into is that in order to make the scarf only 10in wide, I need to use an E (3.50mm) hook and it's so stiff and unyielding. I can't imagine it is going to be a comfortable scarf.

    I'm not using the same brand/type of black yarn you're using. Is the specified black yarn not worsted weight?

    I guess I'll go and at least look at the Loops & Threads yarn to see how it compares to the yarn I've already got, but any advice would be appreciated. :)

    1. Hi Erika,

      The Loops & Threads yarn that I used is worsted weight yarn. I'm not sure why yours is coming out larger than 10 inches. I do agree with you that the smaller hook will make your scarf more stiff as we are working with two strands of yarn. You can try using sport yarn with a 5.50 mm hook to get a less stiff project that is within scarf width.

      You can also try washing your finished product with shampoo and conditioner. I've heard that can soften up yarn to make the project less stiff. Google it to get full instructions. Hope this helps!

      Best,
      Justine

  9. I would like to make these for a toddler and another set for an adolescent child. could you help with the appropriate size change? (not sure if that made sense but....) would it work if i just cut all the numbers in half? i'd like to make the scarf 5" wide and about half the length while still maintaining the symbol

  10. Ok so when doing the scarf it says ch. 40 w/ blk but do you start w/ blk & yellow I'm new at this so how can you crochet 40 in blk w/ yellow not showing if you drop yellow till needed won't it be hard to bring it up to where its needed w/out it looking like you never had till needed help I'm confused

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. When you start the chain 40, only use black. When you get to Row 7 when yellow is needed, sc 14 in black, and for the 15th sc, insert hook in black and draw up a loop. Complete the sc with yellow yarn by pulling it through both black loops and finishing the sc. Then drop the black yarn and crochet over it as you use yellow.

      If you see my Superman Scarf post (http://javocado.blogspot.com/2013/11/superman-scarf-pattern.html), I have some pictures on how I did color changes. Hope this helps you.

  13. i'm having issues with the logo coming out really weird. i'm counting my stitches and checking every possible thing but the black SC's aren't lining up properly and the logo is coming out like it went thru a taffy machine. is there any chance you have a vid of working on the logo? i don't know what i'm doing wrong. :(

    1. Unfortunately, I don't have any crochet videos.

      The color change is done on the last stitch of the current color. That may be where your SCs aren't lining up.

      Example: If the pattern calls for 3 black sc, and then 2 white sc, you would complete the third black sc with white yarn.

      I have some pictures on the color change technique on my Superman Scarf post (http://javocado.blogspot.com/2013/11/superman-scarf-pattern.html).

      Hope this helps,

    2. What do you mean by "crochet over it?" Also, how do you secure the first use of yellow? Do you just pick it up and start using, or do you secure it to the hook?

      Delete
    3. Lynda,

      I just pick up the yellow yarn and start using, and leave the black yarn down and crochet over it with the yellow.

      Delete
  14. Okay, thanks! I think I figured that out. Do you do the front loop, back loop, or both?
