Rated 4 out of 5 by mommycozy Nice variety of great colors
The reason I give this sweater 4 stars instead of 5 is that over time the fabric gets stiffened up after washing and air drying as per the care instruction. The colors are stunning and the style is unique!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Salamander1000 Nice sweater
This is a nice soft sweater and I love the green color. Based on the other reviews that said it ran small and tight, I ordered a size up from my normal XS. Alas, size Small is too big and the green is sold out in XS. I like it a lot so I'm keeping it and hoping it will shrink when I wash it. I'm 5'1" and a size 2/4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ThePracticalShopper Happy with purchase!
I purchased the "Cotton Shaker Stitch Pull-Over Sweater" at the LL Bean Flagship store last week. I normally wear earth tone colors, but chose the Mountain Lilac (solid, not stripe) because it was pretty and vibrant - more of a raspberry hue than a lilac. I also wanted a bit more room in this casually styled sweater, so I bought a medium and am very pleased with the slim - not tight - fit (I'm 5' 6" @ 124 lbs.) It falls a little longer in length to the front pockets of my jeans and has a slit on each side (think tunic.) I washed the sweater prior to wearing on a "hand wash" setting in my washing machine, used the "air dry" setting for 20-30 minutes in my dryer, then allowed it to dry on its own - it came out beautifully and fits as well as it did the day I tried it on. I love the sweater and have received many compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by luvtrad2nz very beautiful sweater
The mountain lilac color simply amazed me when I opened the package today. This has got to be the most beautiful LLBean sweater I have. Also the material is very soft and the fit is perfect. I went back and forth on it while it was backordered for so long since I live in AZ and it is already too warm here for sweaters in the daytime. But I did the right thing to keep my order, and I will wear it evenings and when traveling north. Good job LL Bean....

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissFiona Faith restored in LL Bean sweaters
I'd had some bad luck with sweaters from LLBean in recent years. I ordered this one in small in the solid soft green color. It fits perfectly (I am 5'2" and 120 lb) and feels wonderful. It is cozy and soft, almost has a silky feel. The fit is not tight but is figure-flattering, not boxy. This is a great sweater, and I'm ordering another in the lilac. Secret desire: one in each color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by evaska Definitely Size UP
I wear a size 6 top and definitely needed a M in this sweater, and I NEVER wear a medium in LLBean sizes. Everything else I've bought in the last 2 years at least has been S or XS. Other than that, the sweater is gorgeous, and the Mountain Lilac color is truly spectacular--a very cool-toned pinky lilac. The stitchwork is interesting. Based on past experience with 100% cotton sweaters, I will dry clean (they get stiff in my experience of washing them at home).

Rated 5 out of 5 by yourmajesty Shake it up!!!
Ooh la la. Bean is a master of cotton knits. This is a very, very flattering design. Sizing is true. Colour is true. Fits me like it shows on the model, hugging all the right curves. The weight of the yarn is substantial for a cool spring day. Neckline does not gap, sleeves are below wrist bone. Nice tunic length without being too long. Highly recommend. Go ahead girls and get this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaggieInAmes Great sweater
The stitching makes this such an attractive sweater. I loved it but with my short, round figure I didn't do it justice. It will look great on taller, slimmer people. Wish I could have kept it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CakesCakes Cute sweater, pain to care for
Bought this in the green. Fit is cute and flattering, true to size. Green color is very pretty. I had never bought a cotton sweater that couldn't go in the dryer before. When I hung it up to dry, it ended up losing all of its softness. I didn't want to try and dry it only to shrink it a few sizes so I returned it for another item.
