Just in case anyone (Kristin!) is interested the pattern is in THIS
Debbie Bliss book. It's actually a woman's pattern, but Jim loved the cables so much he didnt' care. Plus I got lucky...the yarn I wanted to use was a bigger gauge and the math worked out so I could just follow the instructions for the woman's small (he's 6'4" and has LONG arms. thus the amount of yarn.) For a woman's small it's only 15 balls aran weight.
