Rated 2 out of 5áby choosey4good Don't buy
I ordered this sweater thinking it looked nice in the photo. Pictures can be deceiving because the sweater is rather cheap looking. It runs very small and it fits tight. It doesn't hit high on the hip, more like at your waistline. If it didn't cost so much to send it back all the way across the country, I would return it. Sorry to say this is not up to the normal standards of LL Bean.

Rated 2 out of 5áby RVAllDay Shrunk first time I washed and dried it
I received this sweater for my birthday and loved how it fit. Then first time I washed and dried it, it shrunk in the washer and dryer. I recommend to air dry when you wash it, otherwise a very nice cardigan.

This is the best sweater I've ever owned. Fits great I'm a 3X lady. The fabric is soft, holds up on washing and drying. It is warm and comfortable without being too bulky. The only thing that could make it better would be pockets. I have two and am ordering another today

Rated 4 out of 5áby Judybusy Beautiful, warm sweater
I bought the solid blue in XS. It is a fitted cut, which I like. (I'm 5'3" 130#, 36A on top.) Some cautions on sizing: I think it is too small to comfortably wear a button-down shirt under it. Also the bottom comes to just my waist. Again, this is actually quite flattering, but when I raise my arms, there is about 4" showing between my mom jeans waist and bottom edge of sweater. Without an under layer, one would get cold with the short style. I'd probably get a Small if I could turn back time.Fully zipped, it's too tight in the neck, but the collar stands up just fine when unzipped a few inches. I will take the precaution of flat-drying this so it doesn't shrink.
I wore it with a light underwear top, and it is wonderfully warm. The color is rich and saturated. I think it's very flattering, and even with the caveats above, I know I will wear it to pieces!

Rated 5 out of 5áby GreenKeys Great Cable Cardigan
Love, love, love this sweater! BUT size up! I usually wear a Petite Medium and had to go to a Regular Large. I am 5'2 and 118 lbs. I was unable to zip it up without too much stretching across the middle! I prefer cardigans to not hug the hip and waist. I wear cardigans over T necks etc. and wanted some extra room. Because it is a short sweater, the length of the Regular is fine for Petites! The sweater is a three season weight, tightly knit and hangs well. Returned the Petite M and am waiting for the R Large. (I tried on a friend's R Large to determine if fit and length would be suitable :-)

Rated 4 out of 5áby finnishtothefinish very nice sweater
the sweater is a really comfortable fit, with the exception of the awkward neck. The zipped up style is a little too snug at the neck with the zipper rubbing on your chin and neck. The unzipped style is flopping around a bit too much and doesn't lay down nicely.
The quality is excellent and it is nice and soft.

Rated 5 out of 5áby thebookpusher I do it differently.
I have three of these sweaters and two more are in my husband's closet that I steal frequently.
They are perfect but not quite in the way LLBean intended.
I buy them several sizes larger and use them as a layer, with the top layer being the sweater. Under this I wear a turtleneck, a thin crew neck sweater and then a terrific scarf. I can walk in 20 degree weather with ease.
Another reason I buy this sweater large is so that I can wash it regularly and with abandon.
I love this sweater. I would like to suggest two improvements. Some sort of pocket for ipod or phone and some brownish colors.
These sweaters last forever.

Rated 4 out of 5áby ktoe Comfortable Cotton Sweater
I bought the light pink one a while back. I adore this cable sweater except for one thing. The zipper hits my neck a little oddly when fully closed. I usually wear it down just a bit. I have minor issues with getting it zipped. This sweater complements my body well. I am happy with the 100% cotton fabric content. I like the length, because it shows the rhinestones on my jean's back pockets.
