Depending on size, with worsted yarn and size 8 needles you might have the same number of stitches for your hubby.
This occurred to me too. But they usually made ganseys with a pretty tight gauge and I'm using some yarn that is going to need a #4 needle and just over 200 stitches.

That's 200 sts for the front, and 200 sts for the back.

Oh good grief!
It took me three months to do the castle sweater on size 4 needles.

Your knitting is always so inspirational, Judy! This is a beautiful gansey! How WONDERFUL to score those 3 skeins of beautiful yarn for 69 each!!!! I would positively die to find such a good bargain!
Looking forward to seeing the gansey you design and knit for Tom!!!
