Question men's cardigan

Hello. I have been looking and looking for a crochet pattern for a men's cardigan.....with no luck. Just a simple sweater that buttons up the front. I have come across alot of knit patterns, but none for crochet.
I wish to make my husband one. He just seems to be bothered with the cold this winter - mind you we have had alot of minus 30 degree temperatures....which doesnt help!
If anyone knows of a pattern, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you in advance for your help!
I'm relatively new to FC...and it's wonderful! Wish I had known about it before!
Take care all...
