In Search of a Pattern

This fetching sweater is featured in the newest catalog from Chadwick's of Boston. It's crocheted, but I wonder if anyone knows of a similar pattern for a knitted version? Of course, I could simply buy this one, but I'm not crazy about the color, and I would really love to make one myself.

So -- any ideas?

I looked on Ravelry ( and found several contenders. Since I don't know what it is you like about the vest pictured, here are my best guesses:
Ophelia -- (free)
Melia -- (free)
Anna Pavlova -- ($8.00)

Thank you so much, SpinKitty.
I like the shape of the Ophelia vest, but would like a more open-work lace. And I like the band of stretchy knit at the waist of the Chadwick's version. I may experiment with making my own pattern, but the Ophelia will be the best basis to start. Thank you!
