Rated 2 out of 5 by llbsherry Nice sweater, unfortunate buttons
The sweater is really nice -- I have several. But the buttons on the grey one are much too dark. They really ruin the look of the sweater.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KSWildcat Very pretty sweater
I ordered this sweater in 'cranberry' and received it today. It's much prettier than it appears on the computer. The colors all blend together perfectly like a watercolor painting--not at all loud or garish. It goes perfectly with my cranberry colored jeans. It is soft and cozy--a perfect fall sweater. I would even like it better if it had been made in the U.S.A.!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RIYogaGirl Nice Sweaters for Work
This is the first time I've ordered this cardigan. They seem well made. I ordered a medium, which is my usual size in LL Bean tops. They fit a tad big, but there is no way I could wear a small (at least not for work). I ordered the gray and turquoise. Both colors are pretty and consistent with the colors shown online. I plan on wearing them buttoned over Bean's pima cotton tops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rose39 soft, comfortable, true to size
I bought one in white 1 or 2 years ago. It is great to take to a restaurant or movie where it is often too cool during the summer (because they over-air condition). Am now ordering it in black as well. I machine wash in cold water on delicate, machine dry on low, and it still fits perfectly. I know the directions say to lay flat to dry, but I don't bother, and it's fine!
LLBean: You have a winner...please don't change or "improve" it.
I wish it had a matching short sleeve shell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by passerine Nice addition to wardrobe
I ordered this sweater in navy and like it very much. Although I purchased it in summer, I often carry it with me to places that are likely to be cool. It's a nice quality sweater and suits my needs perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jericho Cute sweater
This will be a great sweater for fall and will go with lots of tees. I bought the tan multi-floral and it will look cute with chinos, jeans or brown pants. Perfect length, sleeves are generous length. Another Bean's winner!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CanadianLLBshopper Love this sweater!
I just received this sweater and the colour is gorgeous- more mauve/purply/teal than blue. I actually bought it to go with a sleeveless navy sundress but there isn't any navy in the pattern. I don't even care. Love it. So flattering. I bought a size up and it is just fine. I'm taking it to Italy in the fall- it will be perfect on the plane and in the evening if the temps go down.
I haven't washed it yet, that's why I gave it four stars instead of five.

Rated 5 out of 5 by thatwombat Navy with Stars Cardigan
Love it- a nice change from your basic ho-hum navy sweater. Great quality. I normally wear a small to medium button-down shirt and knit top with LLB but I prefer sweaters to fit loose for that boyfriend look with the ability to shrug sleeves so I normally go with a large. This fits just the way I like. But if you prefer a more fitted look, I would stick with your regular size- the sizing seems to be true.
I have not washed it yet- hopefully it will stand up. For me it is a wardrobe staple and a keeper. So nice to see something other than florals and animal prints, which I love too, but the little stars is something different for a change. The stars are white which makes them pop on the dark background.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanShopperDeluxe Too Large
Many reviewers found the sweater to run small, and short, but I found the exact opposite. I was hoping it did run a bit small, to wear over dress and with skirts. Bought it in solid white in my regular size and it was huge. The sleeves (and I have long arms), shoulders, length - all too large. Wondering if it was mislabeled, label says M, but this fits like at least a large. Also thinking maybe the prints run smaller than the solids? This is first time that my experience is opposite that of other posters.
Like the softness and the weight of it, but will be returning it.
