I hope you don't hate me for this-- which is, there is at least one pattern out there, and I don't know how to find it! It was on this site within the past month or so, and it's a long coat, shown in grey, or a cardigan, shown in white, depending on which way you wanted to make it. The thread was titled something like "beautiful coat". I did some searching around and just couldn't find it. But if you want to go hunting, it was either in General Knitting, Pattern Central, or How-to Questions.
