Because the doll is worked in rounds, the batman logo slants a little. It has irritated me to no end, but ultimately, I realize that Elliot isn't going to be as critical as I am. Here is the graph I used to do the logo. A tip for changing colors smoothly. Leave the last single crochet unfinished and finish it using the new yarn. So you will have two loops on your hook when you join your new color, pull through the new color to finish the previous single crochet. This gives a much cleaner look in my opinion.

By this point I had attempted twice to make a really cool cape using nylon crochet thread... but I didn't like how it was turning out. So I'm going to do the fabric thing instead.
Being the thrifty person that I am... I went to good will to find just the right material. I found a great skirt that draped exactly how I envisioned and used it as the cape.
A seamstress I am not and I pretty much "winged" the cape. I won't even go into detail as to what I did, because quite frankly, I'm not sure how I did it. I attached the cape using snaps that I sewed in by hand. I wanted Elliot to have the option of removing the cape if he wanted.
