Handknit Basketweave Cardigan

Handknit Basketweave Cardigan is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Showstopper!!! This is a super warm sweater that has caught your eye and will also catch everyone else's. The color is darker and has much more depth than pictured. It is heavy enough to rival a jacket in warmth and looks great with everything I have paired it. It's a winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The sweater to end all sweaters Since this has arrived, I've worn it almost daily. The neutral color and handknit pattern are beautiful. It keeps me very warm and I've gotten lots of compliments!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looking for stylish cozy? Here it is. I adore this sweater. The pros: --beautifully knit, and the basket weave is a lovely pattern --toasty warm --wonderful style that looks great with skinny jeans and pencil skirts --pockets! --cute kilt pin --versatile: the pin lets you pin it closed at the neck, the waist, or wherever you want and lets you adjust the fit; the collar stands up or lays flat No cons for this gem for me, but as other reviewers said, it is a little darker than the photo. The darker color didn't bother me but might not be right for some people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous!!! This is the sweater of all sweaters!! I stalked this sweater and finally was able to snatch it and I must say it is truly everything I had hoped. I wear an XS and it was true to size and not too bulky at all, but just right and cozy. The color is a little darker but so beautiful. The kilt pin is unique and really adds to it. I can't say enough about this sweater except that if you are lucky enough to see your size, then grab it before it is too late!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A gem This is the cutest most unique sweater I have ever owned... I'm 5'3 115 pounds and ordered the xxs and it's perfection! The first day I wore it I received at least 15 compliments...super cute with black skinny jeans and rain boots... it kept me worm all day...people couldn't believe that I didn't knit it myself. The only negative is that it pills a bit but they are really easy to remove.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from bummertown i really really really wanted to love this sweater, i did. i called many stores to get the sweater and got it yesterday. to my dismay, the sweater looks a LOT better on the model (sure, she's skinny, tall, and pretty), but in essence, the sweater did not look like this in person (regardless of model). my original concern was the bulkiness of the sweater when i saw it online- i thought that if it was executed correctly, we'd have a winner. unfortunately, that is not the case, if you are hoping for the same look from the model. anyway, i put it on and knew immediately my nightmare came true- it IS bulky! it's so bulky that it looks more jacket-like, than a cardigan. the color is also darker, and more tan. i guess if you are hoping for a sweater-jacket, then this is your winner. if, however, you are looking for the same sweater on the model, you won't be finding it here. p.s. the pin on the sweater is uber cute.
