Aran Craft Merino Wool Button Front Scalloped Cardigan
I purchased this sweater in Natural. Fell in love with it when it arrived. The cable stitch is beautiful. I haven't knitted in years, but have knitted sweaters with the cable stitch. This is the first Irish sweater that I've purchased, but next year I want another one!
A wee bit disappointed
Yes, I am a wee bit disappointed in this purchase. The sweater is pretty no doubt, but it does not flatter in the least. Not on this lass anyway. Unfortunately it is going back.
Scalloped and Lovely
Ordered this in four colors. Loved the medium violet, liked the natural & coral. I was not crazy about the yellow so I am waiting for an exchange for green. The sizing is big so I sent all back for smaller sizes. The yarn is luscious & the style feminine. I have many Irish sweaters from QVC which I have been happy with. Sleeves on this run too long that is why 4 stars rather than 5.
2nd purchase of merino wool sweater very happy
"I agree with the other reviews. The sweater is lovely. I ordered it in XXL based on measurements in natural, sleeves a little long. The stitching is lovely, it has a feminine touch.
If you get the correct size, it's wonderful. I will order another one in a different color next year! Very happy!
THIS IS TRULY A "CLASSIC" REFINED SWEATER AND WILL NEVER GO OUT OF STYLE. BOUGHT IT IN THE NATURAL COLOR AND WISH IT CAME IN LIGHT MINT GREEN,T00. BUT, THEN I'D WANT TO BUY ANOTHER :) IT HAS A DELICATE ,FEMININE APPEARANCE. IT'S JUST DOWNRIGHT SPECIAL!
Beautiful pattern but......
This sweater is very pretty but I am very disappointed in the fit. The body of the sweater is oddly shaped and hangs big in the back instead of fitting the body. I ordered one size down-still didn't fit right. As much as I would love to keep it, it's a lot of money for something that's poorly shaped. Back to QVC it goes.
This is a beauty! I bought the medium violet and it is prettier
in person. I went up a size and shouldn't have. I just got the
medium in and ordered the yellow which I hope it is just as
pretty. The sleeves are real long as well. Would be nice to
bring this back in the fall, maybe a brown. I've never seen a
brown aran sweater before. Would be nice!
LOVE THE MERINO WOOL SWEATERS !!!
I have now purchased 8 of the merino wool sweaters from Ireland and I'm not even Irish. They are so soft and warm. I got this sweater in the rose pink and love it. The scalloped makes it different. It's a nice touch. I order true to size and never have a problem with the fit. I wear my sweaters 3 seasons out of the year.
I liked everything about this sweater as I buy one every year during this show but the sizing was off on this sweater. The arms were too long and the body of the sweater had an odd shape. I did return it and didn't exchange for the next size smaller because I didn't want to pay the postage game if the replacement didn't fit. I'll wait till next yr.
Beautiful quality but sizing is off
I purchased this sweater in the butter yellow, and it is gorgeous!! I particularly enjoy the scallop details at the hem of the sleeves and the sweater. It is soft and warm and would be one of my favorites forever except..... the sizing is way off! I am 5'6" and weigh about 118, My normal QVC size is S or XS. I read the reviews and sized down to an XXS and I am still swimming in it! Very sadly I need to return the sweater and, as there are no smaller sizes, cannot replace it.
This is a beautiful,feminine sweater. The details are gorgeous and it fits very well. I have several sweaters from this company, and this one is very different in style. I have it in the natural color and it really shows the lace details very well.
This is the fourth Aran Craft sweater I've ordered. I absolutely loved the feminine details - the lace-like knit edging on the bottom of the sweater and sleeves. The yarn in as wonderful as I've always received from this extrodinary company. Unfortunately for me, the sweater is just too large so tomorrow it goes back. Overall the sleeves are too long and I am concerned that would be a problem in another size, even if the body of the sweater fit me better so I won't be reordering. If you're one of those gals who's always looking for that special sweater with the "touch" longer sleeves, then I'd say this sweater is just right for you. It's a beauty!
