Looking for a knitted v-neck cardigan pattern

So my ability to find knitting patterns is about as good as my knitting skills (by which I mean not very good at all...) but I still want to try knitting part of my cosplay instead of just buying it! And trust me, I have looked everywhere for patterns, including Ravelry, but maybe I'm just not looking in all the right places. So to anyone who can knit or can help me find a pattern for an easy enough knitted v-neck cardigan, that would be great!

It would be used for my Shion (No. 6) cosplay. If all else fails I'll buy a sweater for now, but I still would like to knit it myself someday. Here is a picture for reference.

EDIT: Maybe this belonged better in the "Looking for [X] tutorial thread"... well live and learn. I'll do that next time...

Try using terms like "golf sweater", "Mr. Rodgers' Sweater" and try the oldest most out of date patterns you can find, i.e. books at your public library.

While I commend the ideals of this, I question the actual choice of this specific garment. I've crocheted for several years now and just started knitting. If I'm going to put in the hundreds of hours it would take to create something that fit me, I'll be damned if I don't wear it ALL the time, not just for a costume. That is a rather frumpy item to pour that much effort into, especially because it's got to be too big to suit the character. Buy the sweater for this cosplay, save the effort for a high quality yarn and a sweater that you can wear anywhere and will look good on you, not be a big frumpy thing.

I was actually planning on wearing as a regular sweater as well as with a cosplay. Yeah it'll take a lot of time, but it'll give me something to work towards finishing.

And I didn't think about the library. I don't go there much, but maybe they'll have something.
