I'm looking for a pattern for a jumper or cardigan (cable or plain) for a 3 year old in Rowan Big Wool. Does anyone know of one?

ETA: I was searching for jumper and cardigan on Ravelry and not finding very much, but I've just tried searching for sweater and got a lot more results.

Very hard to find anything, but I came accross this on Ravelry

http://www.sweetceleste.com/index.php?p=d31.html

not sure if this one matches your yarn or 3y/o size requirements http://www.interweavestore.com/Knitting/Patterns/Biggy-Print-Pullover.html?

Ethan's Rugby Shirt here http://www.knowknits.com/kstore_pattern_children.html

and if you're a Ravelry member and are knitting for a girl, you can download this one http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cable-car-sweater

Hope that helps a bit.

It does, thank you very much. I think Ethan's rugby shirt may be a possibility.

You're welcome.
You might just have to figure out your gauge and just make it up as you go along rather than follow a pattern. Most people have knitted hats with it instead of children's garments.

I was looking for wool for a jumper for him (for a pattern I already I have) yesterday and he saw the big wool and is absolutely *insisting* that's the wool I have to, have to, have to use :-) So I just thought I'd see what was out there. He may forget and I'll go back to doing what I was going to do originally.

I think it would be a lot easier and you'd have more patterns to choose from if he forgot about the big wool and you could make it in something a bit more normal size.
Lets hope he has a short attention span like most kids, eh? lol!
