This colorful sweater will let your child feel like a mighty superhero. The pattern includes several emblem options worked in simple intarsia, and also features a dashing cape, which snaps in place for safety and versatility.
During the photo shoot, the model for this sweater declared himself Rocket Ship Boy, and once he had his cape snapped on, we could barely get him to stop running long enough to take his photo. Poor Rocket Ship Boy cried balefully when he had to take the garment off—even though the temperature was 85 degrees!
