This is a sweater I made for my 2 year old.  I didn't block it yet.

Here is a close up of the cables.


He's being a 2 year old and refusing to wear it!  I'll get it on him one of these days and force him to wear it in public.  I think he's fighting it because he knows how excited I am about him wearing it.  Is it terrific toddler or terrible toddler?!

You know the joke about toddlers...  What is the difference between a terrorist and a toddler?  You can reason with a terrorist.  Wink  (I have a 2yo too.)

It's just lovely, do win that battle to get at least one good picture of him wearing it!

I forgot to tell everyone where the pattern came from.  It's from a Classic Elite booklet.  I used Classic Elite Flash yarn, it's washable and dryable. 

Thanks for the comments!   And I will get my son into it and take his picture, smiles or not!  hee hee! 

Guacamole- funny joke!  Definately can't reason with a toddler

Looks amazing! I'm sure your son will look great in it (if you can ever get it on him, that is  Smiley ).

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

That sweater is bee-oo-tee-ful and once your toddler/terrorist/terrific lil'wunderkin lets you put it on him...he will look extra cute too!!  My 2 year old can be easily bribed with chocolate if you can't wait that long!!

That looks fantastic. 

My kiddo's easier to get into sweaters when I let him wear a t-shirt underneath. 

Good luck making it happen

WOW!  Keep this for a teddy bear or something once he outgrows the sweater.  It's something to keep and treasure.

That's a great sweater!! I agree. I would definitely keep this forever.

Don't feel bad about him not wearing it. My 19 year old doesn't wear the sweater I knit for him, either. He says it's "too fancy." (And he can't be bribed with chocolate.)
