Thanks everyone for the great compliments!  I did get the sweater in him and took his picture, the whole time he was saying "take it off, take it off"!  I guess he's a t-shirt and jeans kinda guy.  I bet if I call it a "Wiggles sweater" or something like that he'll wear it.   Cheesy

My almost-2yo girl refused the sweater I made her, too, even though she picked out the yarn herself.  Her line was "all done green sweater!  bye-bye green sweater!" and then she threw it.  But I just kept it in sight for  few days, then started presenting it as an option for morning clothing choosing time, and eventually she picked it! woo hoo!  I outsmarted a toddler!  Of course, she's not *really* 2 yet...

beautiful sweater, btw.  Is it your own design?

LOL! I should have knitted my youngest (will be 3 soon) a sweater instead. If I called it a costume he would wear it. The blanket I made him, OTH...rejected!

Is it terrific toddler or terrible toddler?!
He's a terribly terrific toddler. And you're a terribly terrific knitter & mom for making it for him  Grin

Yarnhag - I used a Classic Elite pattern.  It was an older one and I can't seem to find it...when I do, I'll post which one it was, sorry. 

Thanks to everyone commenting, I'm feeling much better about this sweater! 

I think I might try the "costume" approach or have it out as a choice everyday.  Sometimes if I call something a "cool dude......" he'll like it!  Silly silly boy!
