Rated 4 out of 5 by Reviewer693 Order One Size Up
This sweater in an extra small fits smaller than the other LLBean sweaters I've ordered in an extra small. I returned the sweater, and unfortunately a size small was not available. However, the quality is good, and the weight is ideal for mild spring weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HighDesertVeggie So much better than expected
I LOVE that LLBean makes beautiful cable-knit sweaters in cotton! So hard to find. I ordered this in gray, XS. (I'm 5'5", 117 lbs.) It fits very much like Signature line sweaters I have in XS (and smaller than Bean's traditional XS size). It's more fitted and shorter in the body than the XS Bailey Island Crewneck Pullover, but is very similar to the XS Signature Cotton Fisherman's Sweater. Also, the one I received is very much a crew neck (collar covers my collar bones and goes up to the base of my neck) - the photos make it look more scoop neck, which I wasn't that into, so I was very pleasantly surprised. I love the cable pattern, the buttons are adorable, and the sweater is a nice mid-weight. It just feels so well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shorty1954 REALLY NICE!!!
I just got my sweater today it was so nice. This is a sweater that everyone needs for year around wear. During the summer at night when you take a stroll and its nice with a cami under or in that restaurant that cranks up the air to high. I love it so much wish I could have all the colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanieInCanada Love it!
I love this sweater! I have it in navy, and I like the colour, the fit, and the cable-knit design. I also like that it's cotton and washable. I'm going to order another in natural.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ashevillian Fit is off compared to other LLB sweaters
I purchased the "Ember" in a size medium after reading through the reviews and hearing frequently that this sweater runs small. I'd need a large in order to fit a shirt underneath.
The sweater is well made, thick cotton yarn in a nice cabled pattern, buttons are not just decorative and actually do function. My issue is that it really is quite small, not just tight, but short arms and a weird clingy waistband that just isn't flattering on me.
The "Ember" colour turned out to be a strange day-glo salmon that looked just awful on me. Back to Freeport it goes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by steelerfan500 Love this sweater
I received this yesterday and love it! I have not washed it yet but plan to let it hang dry and wash in cold water like the rest of my tops to avoid shrinkage. The sweater is a nice heavy type cotton and I love that the knit pattern goes all the way around the back. It is the perfect length and just large enough to allow light layering underneath it. I can't wait to pick up another color!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mommycozy Looks sophisticated but runs small
This sweater has attractive diverse stitches. The orange color is brighter in person. It runs small so fits quite snugly with a shirt layer underneath. Overall, a really good sweater.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lcashe useful sweater
I bought this sweater in Navy and wore it a lot. Loved it. I bought a small because ll bean small is usually 6-8 and I wanted it to be a bit more roomy since all the reviews say its running fitted and small. I am usually a small 4 on top. My skinny 13 y/o son even borrowed it as it looks unisex when you cover the wide crew neckline with a wool scarf. Then tragedy struck. My son put it in his laundry basket and my husband who believes in only warm wash/hot dryer, washed it. It really shrunk. So, now my son can't wear it and now I have a skin tight sweater. Not going to wear it much at all now as Its like a fitted size 2 crop sweater! Considering buying another in size medium this time. Just have to keep it away from my husbands wash day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KarenCanada beautiful sweater
I received this sweater as a gift from my mom. This is exactly what I expected, a simple but very elegant sweater. It's perfect for fall and early winter here in Canada. I have no doubt it will keep me warm! This sweater tends to run smaller than normal. I am usually a medium but my mom bought me one size bigger because it's slightly fitted. I recommend this sweater to anyone who love simplicity and that East Coast look.
