Knit in Comfy Worsted, My First SuperHero is a quick, cuddly knit sure to please kids of all ages!

This pattern is a great money saver as one ball of each of the four colors required make two complete toys as shown.

He’s a “super” introduction to intarsia too, making him a good project for beginners looking to expand their skills. There are no loose bits and the cape is knit directly from the back-neck, so My First SuperHero is safe for even the youngest children. I have included a full alphabet and number chart so that each toy can be personalized for the recipient.

Taking only a few nights to complete, you’ll be the hero with this last-minute gift!

Errata note:
The pattern was edited on Aug 23 2010 with missing stuffing instructions. Here are the missing 2 paragraphs:

“Stuff the toy as firmly as possible without stuffing showing through the stitches. Push a little extra into the head area so that it stays rounded once the neck is gathered.

Seam feet with CC, either with mattress stitch or by whipstitching tightly across.“

Also, in the “Materials” section of the first page ONLY, the abbreviations for SC and HC were reversed.
