Does anybody know where I can find an easy pattern for a v-neck vest I can wear to work over a collared shirt or something?  I'm looking for something with kind of the same look as the Deep-V Argyle Vest but maybe a little simpler and with a 46 inch bust.  I just love that look for the office.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  I don't think I'm experienced enough to create my own pattern.

you could do the Deep V and just do it in one color, to leave off the argyle pattern.  That would make the vest pretty danged easy (in my opinion, but I haven't tried it myself yet).  As for the bust, I don't know, but you could email Eunny and ask her what mods you could make to it to fit you, and I'll bet she'd help you out!

You could knit something like this - w/out the sleeves http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=92452.0

Knitty's Leftovers might work.  You could start the V lower if you wanted a deeper V and work decreases every other RS row (as opposed to every RS row in the pattern).  I knit mine in a solid charcoal and wear it a lot.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

I thought Eunnys pattern went up to bigger sizes? I'm pretty sure her March 7th or 8th post explained that the bigger sizes (up to 54" I believe) were available now.  Maybe you can adapt that one and just knit in one color.

This might be a good one - you can do the super easy one or the slightly harder lacy one!  I had a question and she wrote me back really quickly.  I would suggest it!

I think this might be perfect:

Easy Cropped Vest

For a 46" Bust you would make the XL size.

You could just keep knitting to make it longer, and it isn't that short anyway. It goes up to Size 5XL. Its a free pattern but you have to become a member of Bernat (that is free too)

Hope that helps!

Actually "boogie" really appealed to me but I've never done cables before so I'll have to practice that. 
Thanks for all the suggestions guys!

Cables are really easy!  I'd love a pattern for a nice fitted v neck cable vest.  Boogie looks a little loose but I'd like to hear from other people who have made it. Keep the patterns coming!  I don't mind paying for one either.
