Free Comic Book Knitting Pattern Day

Today in the US, it’s Free Comic Book Day, when comic book shops all over the country give out free comics to anyone coming into the store. It’s fun and exciting, and a great way to introduce yourself to something new.

Here at Handknit Heroes Central, we take it a step further– we have a super-awesome comic book knitting pattern for you!

The pattern is available in knit and crochet. It’s completely free– you can download it through Ravelry (crochet or knit) or from the Handknit Heroes online store, where it’s available in PDF as well as Mobipocket ebook formats. If you want us to mail you a hard copy, you can buy one to be mailed to you for $1.00 in the store.


This is a freeform mask for superheroes and subversive crafters everywhere! It’s a quick project that uses up a small amount of yarn to make a really nifty and fun accessory. Planning a late-night crochet or knitting adventure? Hide your identity with a one-of-a-kind creation of your own!

The pattern is adaptable for any weight of yarn in any gauge– information in the pattern uses standard measurements and math to lay out a basic construction for you to follow in creating your own designs and inventions.

The Secret Identity Mask mask is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 United States License. You can use the pattern, including making modifications and using it for commercial use, provided attribution (credit) is given. Permissions beyond the scope of this license may be available at

Shops are invited to use the pattern in classes– it’s a good way to teach working in the round, working flat, increases, and icords (in knitting), as well as the role gauge can play in fitting a garment.
