My 5-year-old son firmly believes he is a superhero; he even went through a stage where he would only answer to “Super Jeffrey.” He got a superhero cape for Christmas that he loves, but it’s not exactly practical for wear everywhere. Besides, I’m from the Edna Mode school of superhero wear: “No capes!” So I decided to design him a t-shirt that’s perfect for spring and summer, where he can proclaim to the world at large how super he is.

This shirt is knit seamlessly from the top down, with seamless set in sleeves, and hemmed bottom and sleeves for a tailored t-shirt look. The colorwork can be done either stranded or with duplicate stitch.
