I have made my darling hubby 3 sweaters in the past 2 years. Out of those only one has actually fit. So again he picked out the pattern and the yarn and I went to work. The pattern he chose was "Basket Case" in the book "Men in Knits". He picked Bernat Softee Chunky for his yarn, in dark blue, I double stranded it to meet gauge. We just can't afford what it would have cost to do it in the recommended yarn. So here is a picture of it all done, except for the buttons. It actually fits him, and he loves it. I will post pictures of him in later. I am so proud right now.
The first picture shows the actual color the second picture shows the design.
