The boys keep talking about what they want to be for Halloween this year, and it has me reminiscing about Jakob’s first Halloween, and one of my very first designs.
Here’s a repost, coming to you from all the way back in 2007. Lookit how wittle he was!!
From November 2007: May I present…
SuperBaby’s special powers include drowning his adversaries in massive amounts of drool, and the ability to shove anything into his mouth. Foes are often foiled in their plots by his awesome cuteness which requires all who pass to stop, come closer, and kiss him.
SuperBaby also managed to stand by himself (leaning on the sofa) for the purposes of taking this photo.
His detachable cape is this season’s “in” accessory. No SuperBaby would be caught dead without a cape this year, and we hear that shiny red is the new black.
My brother Aaron edited that pic up there and now SuperBaby looks right at home, defending the city.
He wore the outfit again for Purim too. 🙂
So… I modified it into a generic superhero instead, and now anyone who wants to can knit up their very own!
The pattern is written for ages 6-12 months [12-18 months], and includes full instructions and charts for the costume, the two shown chest shields, and the cape. There is also a blank chart with instructions on how to design your own shield, in case you want to personalize it with your favorite SuperBaby’s initial.
It’s on Ravelry here.
