I have looked and looked and looked for a pattern similar to this cardigan from American Apparel :
http://store.americanapparel.net/rsafr400w.html?cid=217

I've come up with nothing.  It's the shape of it that I love. The long sleeves and v-neck and the fact that it's slightly fitted.
I would be willing to pay for a pattern if it's dang close to the american apparel one.  I'm a.....decent crocheter, but not anywhere near good enough to "just wing it " lol
thanks soooo much to anyone that has tips/suggestions

I just had a quick look and I came up with these:
http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=120&d_id=31&lang=us
http://www.freepatterns.com/search.html?criteria=FC00659
These 2 are both v-neck and long sleeved.

There's also this one, http://crochetme.com/media/p/109195.aspx which is more fitted
This one http://www.stitchdiva.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=SDS-044 is made in broomstick lace, but is made in one piece from the top down, so you should be able to try it on as you go, in case you're not sure. It is very fitted though.
This is nice, but it is much fancier and not as casual as the fleece one you posted. http://www.stitchdiva.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=SDS-005

You could also try making a pattern for a short sleeved cardigan into a long sleeved one (be careful with your shaping), or you could add extra length to a bolero. Have you considered a wrap style cardi? That would give you an instant V neck, and can be dressed down.

No problem!
I like the broomstick one too, but I have only played with that technique once, many years ago. I might have to learn it again.  Cheesy  Make sure you post your pictures!
