Worked vertically and in one piece, this project requires very little seaming. Alternating front-loop only and back-loop only rows create nice clean lines and subtle rustic elegance. intermediate skills are recommended.

I've been looking for a men's sweater pattern and they are so hard to find!  Like this one but the magazine it was in is out of stock?  How can i get ahold of this pattern?  Any other great men's sweater patterns out there?
