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

From the Book:
This cardigan design is a quintessential basic - long-sleeved with a v-neck, double rib cuffs and welt. The buttonhole and button bands are worked integrally while knitting to avoid extra stretching and sewing and for a much neater finish. It is worked in hemp - an ancient, natural and sustainable fibre gaining renewed popularity due to its unique properties. The buttons are natural horn, also from sustainable sources, and enhance the subtle tones of the yarn.
