I also have a hard time finding patterns for boys. Hats/scarves/sweaters can all be changed to suit a boy however. I really like the patterns from They have a few patterns for boys/men. Maybe you've discovered the secret to breaking into writing about knitting. You should write your own book and get rich!

A good old top down raglan with, as Joe said, a racing stripe is always good. I have a book called Tadpoles and Tiddlers that has Rowan patterns--lots for girls, but many for boys, too. I generally find a chart of something the boys like and add it to a basic sweater.
