Rated 1 out of 5 by MLGR Wonderful colour but the fit is too small
Loved the colour, but agree with other reviewers that the fit is too small. The sweater is very tight across the bust.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RU4Real Made too small.
Quality control on this item seems to have missed the fact that it is too short in the sleeves, and the bodice is smaller than other LL Bean women's sweaters of the same size. Also, it seems to have the stiffness of a cotton sweater which has been pre-shrunk. Perhaps this is due to the tension or gauge of the knit...
As a caveat, I was hoping this sweater would be similar to the silk/cotton cardigan which I purchased a few years back. Best sweater ever! This sweater is nothing like it... :(
Dare I suggest that the LLBean archives be scoured to find the product specs on 0FW49 (80%Silk/20%Cotton Cardigan with lovely large shell buttons) for it to be offered once again?

Rated 2 out of 5 by iBuyaLotofLLbean Gorgeous colors, disappointed in styling
This review is for the marled cotton cardigan, offered in 4 beautiful colors this year. I ordered the mallard green, but am returning it. The yarn color and weight are great, but the fit isn't right for me, and I blame the button placement. I've worn a size M in LLBean sweaters for years. When buttoned, the front of this sweater gaps apart between the buttons, which are placed on the very edge. Wish they had designed it with a bit of overlap between the button & buttonhole edges. If the fit had been right, I would have ordered it in multiple colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mcd47mcc Unusual and beautiful design.
This is a beautiful sweater that goes with many different outfits. I wear a petite small and this fits me perfectly. I give it an "excellent" rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveLLBQuality Hem Rolls Up
I ordered this sweater in the mallard green, a pretty combination of green and blue. The sweater is beautifully made and fits true to size. I ordered a petite, and the sleeves are a perfect length (no need to cuff). My only complaint is the hem rolls up. I am short (5'1") and when I sit, the front hem is in my lap and, of course, the back is against the chair. Today I'll try leaving it open which may solve half the problem. This may not be an issue for those lucky to have a longer torso!

I got this cardigan in the marled blue stripe after having purchased several in the solid colors. This is an amazing addition to my denim friendly wardrobe. I found it to be true to size, and have received oodles of compliments already. Love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by cameralady Nice Quality and Worth the Money
I just got this sweater today and love the marled blue heather colors. I like cardigans of this style a little on the loose side and ordered a size bigger. I am petite 4'10 and weigh about 123 lbs. Usually I take a size small but ordered up . That was the right call as the sweater runs shorter than other styles. It seems well made and is a good fall/winter basic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by thatwombat Nice Cardigan- More Colors Please!
Love all the colors I have purchased- 2 striped and 4 solid (especially like the lilac- sooo pretty and hard to get!).
The cardigan runs true to size and falls high hip as shown in the photos- not cheap but a decent price on sale for a substantial well-made conservative sweater that should keep me warm for a very long time. I would definitely recommend this cardigan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NauticalGal Great sweaters, lame colors
I love these sweaters. I have 2, one in pink and one in yellow. They used to have more colors to choose from, especially some pretty blues. What 's with the lame colors. Navy, blah! Cream, blah! Bring back the pretty blues, greens. Mix it up!

This is a GREAT sweater!! I'm so happy with it, that I now own three in different colors, plus the blue stripe -- and I like it so much that I even sent one to my mother as a gift. Love it!
