To protect, serve, and snuggle: superhero knitting patterns! (+ giveaway)

It’s a needle . . . it’s a skein . . . it’s . . .


At your service, clockwise from top left: meet Heroic Herschel, Happenstance Hippo; Sampson Sheep, Supreme Super Stylist; The Magnificent Moo; and Landon Ludwig, Wonder Kid from Knit Superheroes.

Knit-Superheroes-coverNever fear—best-selling author Rebecca Danger is here! She’ll help you save the day when you knit the sweetest superheroes that kids (and kids at heart) have ever seen—each with a sidesplitting tale of their rise to superhero status.

As you knit these new friends, you’ll find that most patterns only need between 100 and 200 yards of any given color yarn—great for using up your yarn scraps. Rebecca’s listed how many yards of yarn she used for each color so you can check your stash first.

Adorable softies include instructions for two sizes
and can be knit with just about any sock or worsted-weight yarn.

You’ll have a blast bringing these funny fellows to life—and they just might take over yours! Recently the heroes caused some hilarious havoc (by trying to be helpful) in the Martingale office. Photographer Brent Kane caught them up to their antics:

Lucky Lancelot wanted to give a hand organizing some paperwork but ended up totally overwhelmed.

Alberto Alligator helped with a cover revision—he preferred an alligator on the cover of the book.

​Silly superheroes!

The large and small versions of each softie are the perfect size for playing, pretending, story-making, and snuggling. And when you bestow one of these softie superheroes on a little one you love, the truth will be revealed: knitting IS a superpower.
