hi

i'm looking for 2 patterns for a friends boys, the sizes i want to do are 4 year old and 1 year old jumpers (or something really easy and quick to knit).

i have a few ideas, but am not 100% sure that they are right for the boys. i don't know the boys or their mum that well, but she's having a really tough time at the moment so i thought it may just out a smile on her face.

any ideas very greatfully recivede. i have had a look around on ine, for the free patterns (i don't mind buying the pattern if they are for 4 years + as i have a 3 year old boy myself, but anything smaller i don't see to buying as i won't use it again.

any ideas i would be very greatful for

How about something with a star on it? I think those are very boy-ish, and you can change the colors however you would like. In fact, I'd put the star more in the middle of the chest.

So glad to be of help. Also if you can ever get your hands on this book

http://www.royalyarns.com/pbks/Rowan/Pipsqueak.htm

There are a couple star sweaters for boys in there, the Hero for the larger size and Mickey for the baby size. I think the book is out of print, but I got mine off eBay, or perhaps you can still find it in a library or knitting shop. All of the patterns in there are very nice and timeless, I like them all, well, except for maybe the leopard print things. ;)
