Aran Craft Merino Wool Button Front Cable Knit Cardigan
Most awesome sweater I ever owned
I've wanted an Irish cardigan for many years. Until this one was offered at a clearance price with easy pay and free shipping, I couldn't work one into my budget. I bought the gray, then came back for the natural. This is warm and not scratchy at all. This sweater is sized to wear over another layer, so I sized down and it was perfect. I wish the red was still available in my size; I'd have THREE of them! Love this so much!
Buttons not sewn well
Lovely color red but when simply trying the sweater on, one button came off in my hand. Then when I checked the other buttons one more came off. The buttons sort of dangle and look ready to come off right out of the package. I never even wore the sweater.
Another thing is that the buttons were described as "jewelry" so my expectations were for a higher quality metal. The buttons are cheap feeling and looking toy-like plastic. For the price I expected more. Maybe for 30 I would pay to re-attach or replace the bottons because I liked the style and color. Not at the 80+ pricepoint though. Returning for full refund, not a replacement :(
Great sweater, but runs large
I bought this sweater in the natural color. It is a nice sweater, but I have had 4 buttons fall off after wearing it about 5 times. I will have to sew them back on myself. I was surprised this happened because the sweater seems to be a good quality. I do not button it when I wear it, so they must not have been sewn on very well. It would be great if this sweater came in navy blue. I would order it again, but I'd check the buttons before wearing it.
I'm so glad I bought this sweater, its the nicest sweater I ever bought. Very good quality and looks great on. It does run a bit large so I did size down. I will order another style shortly.
I purchased the grey. It fits well and looks great. The design is perfect. Love it.

I REALLY LOVE THIS SWEATER ! I bought this in blue and it is so pretty. My husband loves it on me too. The fit is just right ...the buttons look great....and it is warm but not too heavy.
I purchase at least one sweater each year during either Rose of Tralee or on St Patrick's Day. And as usual, I am not disappointed with my purchase. This is a beautiful sweater. I love the details on the buttons and the craftsmanship is outstanding. I think the decorative buttons help to dress this up a little more than some of my other sweaters. I do wish the button holes were finished but the sweater is gorgeous either way. Thank you QVC. Keep them coming.

This sweater is beautiful...but, even though I used the sizing chart, the sweater was extra big.. I had to return it
I recently bought this sweater. I was amazed at the fit, color, and quality. I bought the natural color to wear with everything. Living in the south, it is usually too warm to wear a sweater and a coat in winter months. This fit true to my QVC size. The faux pearl buttons give it a classy touch. I plan to wear this with turtlenecks, long skirts and boots. I had a pullover style Irish sweater once, but never wore it. It was so heavy and bulky I gave it away. This cardigan is perfect in every way! Don't hesitate to buy this sweater.
Pretty but Roomy
I ordered this in the natural and size small. I recently lost 50 pounds and my other Aran sweaters are way to large for me now =( . I was surprised to find this one as roomy. I would like to fit a wee bit closer, but as you know it is no longer available in the XS so I will be keeping it and this way I can comfortably layer under it. Now I can't wait for cold weather so I can wear it !! = )
Beautiful but large
I bought this for my mom's 94th birthday last year, and she loves it! It is ideal for a more petite person as some of the sweaters can be a little overpowering. The sizing was a little difficult for me to judge, but the xxs turned out to be the best choice for her. The style is a little dressier than some and the buttons are beautiful framed shell buttons. Not scratchy at all and I wash it by HAND and lay flat to dry for her. It's so lovely I may get one for me too!
SO I would have given this a 5 star but the pocket on one side was torn. The only reason why I am not returning it is I can sew it up. This does run extremely large! Other than that I am so in love with this cardigan! I wish they would have had a medium in the green.
