That'll work. I have patterns for chinks, and can interpolate those for batwings.
One interesting post on a fb page that I had not thought about was regarding wearing chinks in AZ cactus country. She said she wears shotguns, because the cactus always wants to poke you in the shins and chinks just don't help much for that. I'm sensitive to that. When I was about 4-5 years old, I fell off a horse into a pile of cholla (jumping cactus, in the vernacular). Luckily the memory is pretty foggy. Funny how your mind blocks some unpleasant memories like that.
I can see where chinks would be good for Texas mesquite country and AZ's higher desert elevations where there's more juniper and cedar than anything else.
