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 (www.ravelry.com) and found several contenders. Since I don't know what it is you like about the vest pictured, here are my best guesses:
Ophelia -- http://amingledyarn.wordpress.com/gallery/short-sleeve-sweaters/ophelia-pattern/ (free)
Melia -- http://www.naturallycaron.com/projects/melia/melia_1.html (free)
Anna Pavlova -- http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=15848589 ($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!
