This sweater didn't actually take me that long to knit; it was just frustrating!  I discovered I really do not enjoy intarsia knitting, but the results of my ripping and tearing were worth it!  Take a look!

     

I made this for my bff's 5 year old for Christmas.  He will be the coolest kid in kindergarten!  

The pattern is a free ravelry download and is well worth the hassle for a true spidey fan.  Thanks for looking!

I bet your bff will have a time trying to get that sweater off of him. I do so wish I could knit, I still have issues with crochet patterns. This is great and looks so well done.

This is the type of project that makes me want to learn to knit.  It looks great, and that's one lucky kid!

That's fantastic! My husband would love to own a sweater like that. Never too old to be a Spiderman fan.

Oh my goodness, this is wonderful! My son would adore it. I really do need to work on my knitting. I still remember the absolute basics, but I want to make things like this!

thanks for all the kind comments.  My little friend does love this sweater!  Those of you wanting adult versions, the pattern is written in adult sizes as well as for children. And it's free! Find a knitter who loves you and beg!
