The Einstein Coat is a great sweater coat. There is a thread here in the knit along section.

Quite a few patterns online. Did you try googling?

Knittingpatterncentral has lots in their 'Women's Jacket and Coat' section:

Don't forget to check the knitting books at your local library. There are some fab sweater coats in the Vogue books.

Also, keep in mind that you can alter a cardi you like to whatever length you want.

HTH,

What did the ones at JCP or Kohls look like? Perhaps you could post a link to a pic of what you're looking for.

Perhaps something like one of these:

Knittingpureandsimple has one (referred to as a cardi)...
