Wafflestitch Cardigan Sweater

Wafflestitch Cardigan Sweater is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thick and cushy waffle knit Love this cardigan! I bought two of these! The navy one first, then went back for the gray one after realizing how much I was wearing the navy one. This pills, but not as badly as the Kent cardigan, and the texture disguises it somewhat. It's warm and fuzzy, and the knit is thick and dense and soft (I touched another waffleknit cardigan in store that was made of cotton and it had a much more dry and cold feeling than this one). The collarless cut is not the most flattering thing in the world, but the sweater is so comfy, looks nice, and has good pockets that don't stretch out too much. I sized down one size in the Kent cardigan but took my normal size (M, size 8) in this sweater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cozy chunky sweater The material for this sweater is so soft and thick, but not too heavy. The sweater itself is a little boxy, and definitely has an oversized feel to it-- so if you want something a little more snug and form fitting size down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty blue sweater coat A great staple for my winter wardrobe, the blue is a nice alternative to my obsession with gray sweaters. Soft and pretty, Madewell always brings their A game for sweaters!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and cozy sweater! This is my second sweater from Madewell of this fabric and I really love how comfy and versatile it is. This ribbing adds a bit more dimension to the sweater and hasn't pilled yet, which is a bonus (the other one started pilling pretty soon after). It is easy to dress up and down and I want to wear it everyday. It fits true to size :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cozy So soft and cozy. Fits true to size, maybe a tad bit but the fit is supposed to be roomy I think. 5’9” and 145lbs and I got a small. Love the color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chunky fall cardigan . Cute Wrap your self in a cute chunky cardigan like this one ! Compared to the Kent cardigan , this one is waffle stitched and thicker. The Kent is a little thinner but both have a very similar material which makes it easy to pile. I don’t mind so much anymore... seems like their cardigans have been the same materials the last 2 years. The cardigan is warm and love the tan color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm obsessed with this cardigan Was looking to buy a long cardigan to layer on a trip I'm taking over the holidays, and from the moment I saw this one, I knew I would love it. It's incredibly soft, and the wafflestitch texture is beautiful. It looks so expensive, and I never want to take it off! The light grey color is very pretty and goes with everything. I'm considering buying the blue as well just because I love it so much! I'm 5'6", 130 lbs, and slightly pear shaped and I went with the S because that's all my local store had, but I probably could've sized down to an XS due to the oversized nature of it. Still, I think it looks good without being too oversized. It hits a few inches below my fingertips on my thigh, and the sleeves aren't too long (unlike the S in the donegal Kent cardigan, which I had to roll up).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cozy winter staple This sweater is super cute and soft. Love throwing it over anything. Definitely runs large- size down. I usually take a medium in Madewell and ordered a small and still is nice and roomy. One drawback is that it pills pretty quickly- noticed pilling after 2 wears. Will just have to use the sweater defuzzer for this one!
