My baby boy just turned 9 months old this past weekend and I wanted to take some fun pictures of him. I searched Red Heart’s free patterns to see if I could find something to crochet that screams his personality and came across the Halloween Boy Hero pattern. AHHH!!! HOW PERFECT!
This pattern offers different sizes so for my growing 9 month old, I decided to crochet the smallest size, size 2, and use Red Heart Super Saver Royal and Hot Red yarn.
First crochet the cape and tabs.
Then crochet the cape edging.
Then, onto the mask. Make the eye openings and the face.
Then add the band to the face.
Then join the end of the band to the other side of the face.
Then onto making the cuffs for my son’s itty bitty arms. This really adds to the costume!
Weave in your ends and there you have your Super Hero set!!! HOW FUN!!!!
This pattern offers directions on how to make a lightsaber and a star to add to the cape but I didn’t make this part of the project. I was overly amazed at how cute this was on my baby boy. :)
