Presenting my latest pattern, now available both through Knit Picks or Ravelry.
My First Costume: SuperHero
Some of you may remember the Superman costume I’d knit for Jakob when he was a baby. This is my update of that pattern.
The pattern is knit toe-up, in (mostly) one piece. The legs are knit first then joined for the briefs, then the sleeves are knit and finally the body, which is knit in one piece from the yoke up. I included short-row shaping in the diaper area to give more room and a better fit.
There are photo instructions on how to make the optional cape.
The Power Princess chart is included…
as well as the chart for your little SuperStar.
Not only that, but I provided a blank chart and instructions on how to personalize the pattern, so you can put your own image, your child’s initial or anything you like! (That’s how I made the original Superman version…I’m just saying…)
I was very lucky to have my friend’s daughter Maya model for me, and her father Avi take the photos. (If you like his work, he is an amazing Montreal-area photographer. You can see more of his work on his website).
I hope you like the pattern. I have been having requests for it ever since Jakob’s version came out, but life got in the way and it wasn’t until now that I was able to get it out into the world. I would have loved to have had it ready in time for Hallowe’en this year, but at least now it is out there and ready, early enough for next year. (So you’ve got a whole year to knit!)

Super cute. What a lot of work you’ve put in to that – and it’s really really cute. I wanted to call it lovely – but it’s cute through and through. Congratulations – I can’t wait to see all the examples of this that pop up. 😉
