Cash-For-Stash Contest

I've finished Braydon's "B" pullover.  I have a couple of ideas for upcoming sweaters for him, but I thought I'd start a little collection of good pattern ideas for little boys.  That's where you come in.  In the comments, tell me the name of the pattern and where to find it:  book, link, website, etc.  I may or may not make the sweater, but I'll check out each suggstion.  I'm not looking for entire websites listing patterns, but specific pattern ideas.

It needs to be sized somewhere between 18 months and 4 years.  I prefer to knit with fingering or DK weights of yarn.  I likely wouldn't make anything in a chunky-weight.

For your efforts, I have a prize for one lucky poster:

Cash For Stash Bank
It's a pottery bank where you can put away your pennies in order to save up to increase your yarn stash.  I'll announce the winner, chosen at random, on Sunday, April 17th. That gives you two weeks. 

Good luck and thanks for sharing your ideas with me.

CUTE jar, but I have NO idea on such tiny patterns. (It's hard enough for adult men stuff...)

I think you should make him a Colorado Avalanche sweater. Use your basic raglan pattern and chart the Colorado Av's logo. Sue G

I love this sweater

My son would have loved that when he was a little younger, but now that he's almost in kindergarten he wants sweatshirts. From the store, mom. =)

This one has been on my list to knit for my son when he gets a little older - all that cabling is gorgeous, but I don't want to have him outgrow it in a season. But I really love the cabling and the idea of it growing with the kiddo :)

How about the Tomten by EZ?
It is one of my all time favourite ones (besides the baby surprise).
Love the stash jar.
