Rated 4 out of 5 by shopforme Style didn't look right on me
This sweater is gorgeous! The quality is unbelievable! I bought the xl in the slate. The color is AMAZING. I so wanted to keep it but it just didn't fit my body. Nothing wrong with the sweater's proportions just mine. I should be in a smaller size but I carry extra weight in my tummy and I have a smaller chest and hips. It was so large in the hips on me didn't look right, like wings. I think I could have gone down a size or maybe two and the empire waist would have fallen in the right place. I am in the process of losing weight half way to my goal, I may just try this sweater again in a smaller size next year if they bring it back, and I can get rid of my tummy.

Put this item on waitlist and was quite pleased when I received. The color and the fit
of the sweater was great. Looking forward to the cooler weather so I can wear. Would recommend this to anyone who is on the fence.
Rated 5 out of 5 by greenemerald Most Beautiful Intricate Irish Sweater
If you only buy one Irish sweater in your life, and you like this style - then you MUST purchase this sweater. I have bought over 16 Aran Craft sweaters from QVC ( I'm not rich, I've just been shopping here over 20 years) and this sweater far surpasses them all. It's the type of sweater you want to buy in every color, but at the same time you want to buy only one so you can tell your friends you had a little old Irish lady hand make it for you (wink, wink). It's that wonderful. It cinches you in the right places to make you look slender; whereas most of my other sweaters bulk me up. The mandarin collar does not choke you; that was a concern because I don't like things around my neck, I assumed I'd probably have to return it if collar was tight but it was Perfect. Even the arm length was good and I'm 5'9. Now for design; when you look at the back it forms a beautiful celtic cross. I just can't say enough about this wonderful sweater, and I tried it on in 90 degree heat and humidity when it came to make sure it fit, so you know it must be good!

It lends to green in a grey base like a sea glass green blended with sea blue. Very captivating.
I bought xxl and returned , I had bought the white it is a creamy ivory but too dull. It ran bigger than I thought I can be large or extra large so went large and I'm fine ..,,,,,lots of give and soft stretch.
Love this color buttons a deep sage..very soft color to go with many outfits..
Rated 5 out of 5 by Marymom Fabulous design at a fair price
This is a fabulous-looking cardigan that is much better looking in person than on the screen. I did think it was a little lightweight when I opened the package, but on a closer look I realized that merino wool is indeed more silky and it translates beautifully to this design. I had many compliments on this today (in church) and paired with a nice pair of pants, it did look great. The width someone mentioned in the hip is there, but I think it has to be, to accommodate the stitches' design. The fact that the piece comes with an extra button and matching yarn (if needed sometime) shows that a lot of care went into this. All in all, a real keeper, and something I will enjoy for years and years.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Anke Lovely but watch the sizing
Ordered this in the wondrful royal blue color. Concerned with the reviews that mentioned that the sizes may be "off", I went on-line and followed the measurements the maker provided for this specific garment. My normal size is a medium and I ordered that size. According to the measurements provided, I expected it to be a little on the large/loose side and it is. I can wear a very thick sweater comfortably underneath. A small would have worked for a more form fitting jacket.
I am only 5'2" and the belt stitching fits right at the waist. For a taller person it would be higher creating an empire waist.
For merino wool it is quite coarse but not scratchy. With propper care, it should wear very well for many years.
It is very stylish and figure flattering, enhancing ladies natural curves.
