This pattern is also known as “1950s Style Cardigan” in Men’s knits: 20 new classics.

Please note: the pattern specifies 12mm needles for the body, but this size was not available in the drop-down menu.

From the Book:
A retro-inspired zipper cardigan with a garter stitch collar and patch pockets. Made in lofty but lightweight wool for oversized stitches. It is simply worked in stockinette stitch with a contrasting rib-stitch back. This garment knits up fast and is a great basic.

Yardage
This pattern requires 10-12 skeins of Rowan Big Wool. The book incorrectly states that Big Wool is 137 yards/skein. The yardage requirement listed above (870-1044 yards) was calculated using the correct number of yards per skein of Big Wool, 87 yards.
