Men's Crochet Cardigan

I made this top down cardigan for my husband. It was supposed to be for Valentine's Day but things happen. It's only a week late and he loves it.

It is crocheted except for the sleeve and bottom edgings which are 2x2 knit rib. The yarn is Paton's Classic Merino in Dark Grey Mix (8 skeins) and I used an F hook and size 6 needles.

The crochet stitch pattern I used was 'sc in front lp, sc in back loop' all the way across. The texture is fabulous but I can never get the pics to show it right. The neck edging is simple rows of sc and he wanted a zipper.

Doesn't he look happy?

NOTE: I get a lot of requests for this pattern but I DO NOT have a pattern written up for it. It was a one time design customized for my husband. Sorry.
