Here's Little Man's Shawl Collared Sweater from Debbie Bliss' Baby Knits for Beginners.

I'm using supersoft merino worsted from Handpainted Yarn.
You're looking at the back and the right front of the sweater (it's a cardigan). I have about 1/2 of the left front done and then it's time to sew seams and pick up stitches for the shawl collar. The funny thing about this Debbie Bliss book is how big the patterns are. I'm following the pattern for a 18month to 2yr old and the chest measurement says 31 inches. That's 31 inches around the child's chest, not 31 inches around the finished sweater! So I think this will fit Little Man just fine even tho he's nearly 3 yrs old.
