I recently watched a British TV series called Rosemary & Thyme about two female gardeners - one a former professor and the other a former police officer - who always seem to unearth murders wherever they dig.
But I enjoyed seeing their handknits - at least in the first season - before they moved on to cashmere store bought zippered hoodies and cardigans.
Rosemary wore this lovely handknit fair isle vest repeatedly in the first few episods. Isn't it gorgeous?
So I went on a Ravelry search for Fair Isle Vests and quickly came upon Janine Bajus' Redbud Vest:

See how the colors are similar? I was all ready to purchase this pattern when I saw this note:
"The Redbud Vest pattern is available as a paper pattern only; please check with your local yarn shop or favorite online vendors."
So now I might have to go on a quest and see if I can find it. Impossible? Perhaps. Anyone want to help me on my quest?
P.S. I looked through more of the comments for the pattern on Ravelry and discovered that Janine does in fact sell this pattern from her website- so I've ordered it the old fashioned way - on paper.
