Batman Baby Blanket

Some friends of ours spawned, and as the father is our bud and a Batman nut, I figured this was a good gift to make for his little girl:

Bat-ghan

Thanks to the Dark Lilac cross stitch pattern generator for spitting out the chart for this based on the Batman logo- I then chose baby yarn in what I think are appropriate baby colors. Tapestry crochet finished this off- it's about 4 foot by 3 feet. A weird size, but good for wrapping around the little tyke...and that's how the math worked out.

I realize this is now in classic Batgirl colors, which also seems appropriate.

I'm not a girly girl, not really into babies, but if a friend spawns and you're a craft geek, ya gotta do something appropriate, right?

you wouldn't still have a pdf version of this pattern, would you? It appears Dark Lilac isn't online anymore, and I would love to make this for my friend who is expecting.

Hey! Amazing job!
I know this blanket is from several years ago...but I was hoping you might be able to help me out? You see, my mom is an avid crocheter/knitter and has passed her enthusiasm onto my three sisters. She tried with me but yarn and needles never made me smile. She has never given up though and recently two pals of mine, also supremely obsessed with batman, discovered they have a mini bat on the way and I'd like to make this for them. It'll make my mom happy to help me, my friends happy and therefore I will be happy. So if you might want to send along a pattern you might still have for this I'd be so excited. Let me know! Thank you!
