This pattern was a toughie. It took a long time to get it written and even longer to get it worked up. I usually write my patterns as I go, so I know exactly where I am. This one, I chose to write from the beginning, based off of a picture that I graphed out. There were many revisions along the way, as well as an error that was made very early on (I inserted 1 extra stitch somewhere while working it) and it threw me off and I had to keep in mind that one extra stitch and make sure that I didn't accidentally insert it somewhere along the line in the pattern.

I will not lie... it's very large. It is the size of my queen bed. It took me forever, but I think it came out great. There is a small problem in one of his ears, where I think i shifted the pattern outward. By this time, I didn't want to deal with it anymore so I left it be. Perhaps you can find it, and if you do, just let me know!

**Updated on February 26th to include revisions by dedicated readers and a link to a google doc with the original chart that I used to make this blanket- see notes below for further explanations!**
Batman Blanket Crochet Pattern
Materials needed:

7-8 Skeins of Black Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Red Heart)

2 skeins of Red Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Red Heart)

a very small amount of White Worsted Weight Yarn (again, I used Red Heart)

Size "H" crochet Hook

*I only used about 2 skeins of red heart, but I actually used parts of four different skeins because there were certain points of the blanket where it was helpful to have more than just two skeins going at once.*

Color will be written out with the number of stitches, followed by the color notation in parentheses, ie (B) = Black or (R) = Red or (W) = White

Turn at the end of each row.

Pattern:

Start with Black, chain 194

Finish Off, Weave in Ends.

*note: if some of your edges are too "cut" for your taste, try fleshing them out a little while you weave in your ends! I did that for mine and it worked out great!

{edits made to correct rows 38-45 on 5/13. There are still errors in the following rows: 59-61, 80, 88, 110}

{edits made to correct rows 59-61, 80, 88, 101, 108 and 110 made on 2/26/14. I think this corrects all of the known errors in the pattern. If you find more, please let me know!

Also, i have uploaded the original chart that I used for this pattern. You can see that there are some subtle variations in color and this is where I would work half the square (as you work 2 stitches for each square across a single row) in one color and the other half in the other. With the chart, you can use your own judgement. Enjoy!
