Rated 5 out of 5 by OhInOhio from Moved right into this sweater Not sure I get the negative reviews, but this is my first cable cardigan. Shopped Bean since the 60s, so there you go. I like the weight of this, not bulky. It is not tight but does accent your torso a tad. Love the cable stitching, it really stands out even in the navy blue I purchased which is a true navy, not so dark you mistake it for black. I was out in 59 and breeze and was completely comfortable. Giving it 5 stars because it is the right thickness and did the job. I would really really love this identical sweater with two patch or slash pockets that zip. Either would be great for keys and phone whilst dog walking. Thank you LL Bean. Love you guys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mochalover from Good Go To I wanted an everyday sweater so I wouldn't have to wear a hoodie or fleece jacket in the Florida winter weather. It looks like some of the sweaters I saw in Scotland. I was excited that this came in Petite. It fits great without the added bulk that a regular size has especially in the sleeves for me. I was more worried about the color. It looked more teal on my computer than the catalog. I wanted the forest green that would match the tartan plaid flannel shirts. The chat expert informed me that the catalog is what I should order by. It matches so I am a happy customer. Will consider another color later.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Phaedra102 from Disappointed in latest sweater style I bought this sweater for my mother as a Christmas present. She has numerous colors of this sweater with the cable all around (the sweater) dating back to 2010. Well, she opens and it tries it on and it fits lousy. Also, the newest style of sweater does not have the cable all around, only in certain areas. You can also see through the sweater knit. Fast forward, to yesterday, took my mother to LL Bean in Burlington, MA to pick out another color. Same issue and she is very disappointed. Bring back the style with cable all around the sweater. It was made well and heavier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WellsJetty from Soft, beautiful, perfect fit Got this in plum. I'm petite, 5 feet, got a small. Directions say to dry flat, but my rule of thumb has become: if something doesn't survive the washer and dryer it goes in the trash. Dried on lowest setting and took it out when it was just a bit damp. Shrunk just a bit. Still fits perfectly. The cable and detail looked a bit flat out of the package, but after washing, the cables really stood out. It's stunning. High quality, metal zipper, that's comfortable zipped all the way up. I love it. Very soft, cozy and flattering. Thick and warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beetlefan from Nice cotton sweater I've been eyeing these sweaters online for months and finally went to the LL Bean store in Denver (CO) to try one on. I'm glad I did because I tried on two (teal and basil) and they both fit a bit different (the teal was a tinge smaller than the basil). I can wear a L or XL in LL Bean tops and shirts, depending on how they run (XL if I want roomier) and decided the Basil XL was the winner. Actually, the store was chilly so, while browsing the other fantastic merchandise, I continued wearing the sweater, tags and all. So if there's a sale coming up, I'm ordering another one of these. So soft, not overly warm but a good layering garment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FormerChicagoan from Love This Sweater I received my 8th of these sweaters today (most of them purchased when they were on sale) and I love it as much as the first ones. I have the red, white, gray, navy, white, cream, lt. blue and rose.These sweaters are so warm and comfortable. They are soft and just feel good as well as look great. They also wash well. I don't put them in the dryer...just line-dry them and they maintain their shape. I have gotten many compliments on them. I won't need another warm sweater for a very long time...although the black one looks very inviting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rosalindr from Great sweater, and it shrinks to fit I bought this sweater in Women's 2X, but it was very big on me. I lost some weight recently but thought the 1X would be too small. It turned out the 2X was way to big. The laundry instructions say to wash in cold water, reshape and dry flat. You should do that if you want to keep its original size and shape. I washed in hot water and dried in a hot dryer, and it shrunk down to fit me perfectly. The sweater is light weight and perfect for fall temperatures. I bought it in yellow or "Butter," which is one of the discounted colors. It is a light shade of yellow and goes well with darker colored skirts or slacks. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Azil from Have two I love the sweaters. I had one along time ago and the sleeves always got very stretched out. This new style does not get stretched out. I have two and I’m waiting on one that was on backorder. These do not look dowdy like some of the other clothes from L.L. Bean do these days. Sometimes the styling of the clothes these days does not sit well on my body. However the sweaters are very nice and high quality. I weigh about 115 and I am 5 feet and I ordered the petite small and the fit is a little loose Hopefully they won’t shrink much when I wash it.
