Donegal Kent Cardigan Sweater

Donegal Kent Cardigan Sweater is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go to coat for spring I ordered an xxs. It is oversized so this size fit the look I was going for. 5’4” and 125lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Cozy Someone in a comment below me said this cardigan reminded them of cookies and cream, which is exactly what my boyfriend said when he saw this! It is adorable and super cozy. I can see myself wearing this with jeans and boots, over a dress, or denim skirt. Like others, I also sized down. I typically wear an XS or 0 in tops, 00 in dresses and skirts, and 25 in jeans. The XXS fit me perfectly. For reference I am 5'1" 112 lbs. I definitely recommend this cardigan and am looking forward to purchasing it in other colors! At least the timber one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So soft and cuddly I ordered two of these Kent cardigans (the donegal and the dark green), and am delighted with them. They both look just like the photos. The style is simple and versatile, the fit is just right, and the fabrics are a dream. Both are so soft! I highly recommend these cardigans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect long cardigan I absolutely love this sweater! The material is so soft and the cut is adorable. Per the suggestion of other reviewers, I ordered one size smaller than normal and it fits perfectly. Been wearing it to all my holiday functions and getting tons of compliments!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish outfit Great cardigan! It has the slightly oversized look that's in style while still providing a nice fit. Not too heavy but still warm, I recommend wearing with a denim shirt underneath. Good quality and stylish look, love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cute and cozy! I'm a huge fan of Madewell cardigans, but I'm in LOVE with this sweater. I'm usually a medium in most everything, but tend to size down in the cardigans since they're usually slightly oversized. The small is perfect for me and still looks oversized without appearing too big. I'm 5'7" 140 lbs. for reference. It's also cozy yet lightweight. I kind of want this in every color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! This is my first cardigan from Madewell and I LOVE it! The coloring of this piece is also beautiful! It reminds me of cookies and cream with all of the little flecs of black, grey, and brown in it. Highly recommend you order a size or 2 down as it runs large. Over all, it's very well structured (for a cardigan) and is flattering in all the right places. I'm 5'6" and wear a 27 in Madewell denim and usually a S or XS in tops and I ended up getting the XXS. I can't wait to pick this up in other colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful fabric - love the Kent sweaters! The Donegal Kent Sweater is a beautiful addition to my closet. It has small speckles of brown, black and rust throughout. It isn't quite as soft, nor as stretchy as the original Kent sweater, but is still oversized. I am so glad I tried it on in store because I ended up buying a Large and I am *always* an XL in everything else - so this definitely runs big, just like the original Kent. The donegal sleeves run shorter than the original Kent sweater though, for some reason (which was not helped by sizing up to an XL, so I stuck with the Large) - just something to note if you have long arms and are used to the length of the original Kent sweater. Not a dealbreaker in the least! It's so pretty and unique. Highly recommend this and the original Kent - but definitely size down one size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cozy travel sweater This is the second Kent cardigan I've bought this season. I absolutely love them and they go with EVERYTHING. I have to say the donegal snow isn't quite as soft as my other cardigan in the petal color, but it is still quite soft. Dress it up for work, dress it down for lounging, and it is perfect for travel. I never get too hot as with wool cardigans, but it also keeps me warm. I'm wearing it as my "coat" in 35 degree weather today. This definitely runs large. I typically wear a M and went with a small (still have plenty of room).
