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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBOSU Great sweater!
I ordered the navy star cardigan and it is very nice and true to size. The fabric is soft and that great cotton feel that I love in a sweater. It is a three season sweater. I would love to see this in different colors with a cute design on each one! Make more LLBean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ClassicsAreBest Lovely but neck cut too deep
I purchased the new star print as I liked the picture in the catalog and it was the only one advertised as 100% pima cotton rather than a blend (I don't care for synthetics in a sweater of this type). I wear a Medium and I found it to be an excellent fit and it looks great. Two quibbles, however: 1) the photograph in the printed catalog made the stars look offwhite or even pale gold, rather than white, so I wasn't sure what to expect until I opened the package and saw that they were indeed bright white (which is perfect), and 2) the "jewel" neckline is cut about 1" wider/deeper than most sweaters I have of this type. Unless I'm wearing a shirt or blouse with a defining collar, this sweater neckline makes my neck look scrawny and I wouldn't wear it with a tank or shell. I have found the same problem with one of the oxford shirts I purchased last year from LL Bean, where the neck opening assumed I had a 17"-18" neck (for a Medium??). All in all, though, a lovely sweater with a soft hand and of a nice spring weight, and it'll go with many items in my closet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SSW10 Fine but not great
The other reviews hit this right on. A nice sweater but not the same quality of others I have purchased. Love the color and weight however the sweater falls a bit short at the waist and the cuffs need more structure. The cuffs by the end of the day are stretched out to the point I needed to put rubber bands and fold back the end to keep in place.
For the price I was a bit disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyCustomer59 Perfect Little Sweater
Just got back from a cruise and I took this sweater along as a cover-up for my dresses, tee-shirts, etc. It's a perfect weight and was a wonderful solution for the unexpected chill, but when you don't want anything too heavy. The fit is great, lightweight enough to layer under a jacket if need be, heavy enough to take the chill off if you wear it alone, and it lays nicely on the body. I've washed it since being home, and it washes perfectly too. This is a must-have for traveling, let me tell you. In my opinion, it's the perfect layering piece and traveling companion. I definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lindsay This is my favorite cardigan EVARRRR
I now have three of the lighweight fine gauge cardigans from LLBean, and I plan to continue to purchase them. The multiflorals are great. Floral prints are back "in" again, which makes those of us who were alive in the 80's and 90's feel hip.
Down the construction: this is a sturdy sweater and keeps its shape well. I value it as a perfect weight for warm weather -- great for tossing on over a t-shirt or cami in the office during summer time, great for tossing on over a long sleeved shirt in the fall for an extra layer of warmth for days that aren't TOO cold. I have machine washed mine several times now, and there is no pilling or loss of color. I still get compliments on the first one I bought four or five years ago.
The shape is flattering, too. I am 5'4 usually wear a small at LLBean, and it buttons to look fitted and flattering without bunching. I can't say enough great things about this sweater. I just wish they'd bring back the polka dot! I never did get one in navy dot like I wanted.
