I am looking for a pattern for a cute sweater vest.  Most of the ones I come across are either really bulky or incredibly dated looking.  I want just a basic, slim fitting vest, preferrably with a v neck.  Does anyone have a pattern for a cute one?

There's a really cute sweater on knitty.com, the "cheesy love" sweater:

The pattern can also be made as a vest. (Scroll down.)

I like the hearts, but it seems easy enough to make it all one color. It's got shaping, too, which is important, so one doen't look like a fat boy. (Not to project my issues onto you. Smiley

I had some serious trouble finding a decent sweater vest pattern - my BF wanted one with the v-neck and buttons (we're both hoping that since there are no sleeves, it doesn't fall under the sweater curse). After surfing around forever, and flipping through every single pattern book ever made, and searching eBay, I finally ended up using a Rowan vest pattern as the basic shape, and doing way too much math to get gauge. I think if I made it again, I would try to find a non-cardi vest (like the knitty one mentioned above) and split the front. Would have saved me a lot of work!

There's a nice basic pattern in Judith Schwartz's book "Hip to Knit". 

By changing the fit and the length and the yarn you can get anything from a trendy little thang to a nice grandpa vest.

Thank you all!  The one on knitty.com looks especially cute, and is very close to what I want to do.
