Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s SUPER BANANA! Simple to knit - just a tube with pointy ends, plus eyes, mouth, arms and a cloak. And as superheroes are well known for wearing their underwear on the outside of their tights, Super Banana wears red underpants and red boots, just like in the movies!

Variations of the pattern are provided for mainly working in the round (with a little seaming), and for mainly working flat (with more seaming).

Super Banana was inspired by the commitment by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games to serving only Fairtrade tea, coffee, chocolate, sugar, white and rosé wine, and bananas – to ensure that farmers in poorer countries get a decent deal for the food they grow.
