I am a teacher: Super Mario Sweater is a knitting pattern-designing software released for the Family Computer Disk System on August 27, 1986. Players would input their measurement sizes and design sweaters, adding pictures of famous characters such as Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Bowser in the process. It was devised by Royal Industries Co. Ltd., a Japanese appliance and sewing machine company. It is the first of two textile software releases of the Super Mario franchise, the other being Mario Family on the Game Boy Color.

Royal Industries Co. Ltd. realized that it could profit from a sweater-design program, which led to the development of this software. The company eventually made a real-life version of the software and sold it for 2,900¥ (about $24 in United States Dollars).[2]

One month after the release of I am a teacher: Super Mario Sweater, companion software titled I am a teacher: Teami no Kiso ("I am a teacher: The Basics of Hand-Knitting") was released, which does not feature any Super Mario characters.[3] The software serves primarily as a knitting tutorial, a feature entirely absent from its predecessor.
