I've had a number of knitters ask me if the Leaf Yoke pattern, originally published in Knit.1 Spring/Summer 2009, was available anywhere else. Well, I just checked the Vogue Knitting online pattern store, and YES, it has recently become available for purchase as a pdf download for $6.
By the way the version of the top shown in this blog post is NOT the version you will get from the published pattern-- I used a finer yarn, so the yoke is narrower and sits lower around the shoulders. But there are some helpful hints in the post about picking up stitches from the yoke for the body.
