Aran Craft Merino Wool Button Front Scallop Edge Cardigan
Loving My Sweater!
This is a beautiful sweater! The stitching, scalloped edging, soft and in a cream color so it goes with everything. Found this sweater while it was on sale at QVC & flexpay too!
I purchased some other Irish sweater styles on sale at QVC after reading they were true to size but alas the Large was too big on me. I ordered a medium in this style & it fits perfectly!
Loving my new Aran Craft sweater and looking forward to the cool mornings & nights this spring!
needs better armholes
I love almost everything about this sweater except the armholes. They seem to be odd shaped (and small) and cause buckling between the front neck and the shoulder. I am going to reblock it myself to see if I can get a better fit.
Feels very soft. Fits well. Will buy in more colors. Will be good for dressy occasions.

I purchased this sweater in Summer Green and had to return it because I just couldn't get used to the color for winter wear. Another thing that bothered me was that the buttonholes weren't finished properly ( like I've noticed on a couple of other Aran Craft sweaters I've returned# and that bothers me because I think it's an indicator of how long it might #or might not!# hold up over the years. The sweater itself was beautifully knitted and I could probably be tempted to buy it in another color anyway because I checked on a red sweater that I've enjoyed for a few winters now and realized that those buttonholes aren't finished either, and it hasn't been a problem! I kept the other sweater coat that I ordered #gorgeous, also, in natural) which zipped instead of having buttons. It was true to size for me in a Large.
This is a beautiful sweater. Soft and comfortable and warm. Design is gorgeous .I have at least 6 Irish sweaters and this is the prettiest..Go down a size from your regular size. ( I finally learned that fact. )
I love this sweater. It is a true Irish design, the weight is perfect and the color is just gorgeous. Couldn't be happier ;)
I would have just liked it for me to be a little longer but I can't stress ENOUGH to size down!. I wear a 1X, but I could easily wear a Large in this.
The Perfect Sweater
This is my third Aran Craft sweater and the first one I got in Natural. I find the simple design and color goes with almost any color pants. One day I wore it with jeans and a white t-shirt and I felt like I should be in a catalog or something. I wear large in all of my Aran Craft, Isaac Mizrahi, Quacker Factory and Liz Claiborne sweaters. This is a GREAT everyday sweater!
This is a beautiful Irish sweater.
This cardigan is beautifully made with the QVC promise: Quality, Value and Convenience.
I ordered the medium after reading the size guide. I typically buy a large.
Ordered 2 sizes down and is PERFECT!
Okay, so I went a little nuts on St. Patrick's Day and ordered a bunch of sweaters for myself and as gifts. Nearly all had to be returned, mainly for sizing issues. The thing is, I absolutely LOVE Irish knit sweaters; where I live (CA Central Coast), cardigans are a year round staple. Summers in Fairbanks are warmer than on our little strip of coastline. After returning too large sweaters, I took a chance and ordered this style 2 sizes smaller than my normal QVC size of 1X. The large is an almost perfect fit. Since I'm short, I do have to cuff the sleeves, but the lacey edging makes that look nice. My mom will also be getting one for Mother's Day, as will my sister... so when I visit we'll have matching Ivory sweaters! The nice thing about the Ivory is it's an all-season color. Might be ordering another color for myself while they're still on easy pay. Oh... and my husband LOVES it on me!
NOT WHAT I EXPECTED
I was so looking forward to getting this sweater but was disappointed, it was way too big. I ordered the size like I was told to. I returned it and ordered the medium. I am waiting for it to arrive.
When I saw this online during the St. Pats day special I thought it would be good but I usually do not like collars. Well what a surprise when I unbuttoned it and put it on! The way the front fell was just beautiful and so very flattering to my shape. This is now my MOST treasured sweater.
