Donegal Kent Cardigan Sweater

Donegal Kent Cardigan Sweater is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
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).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful color Beautiful color and fit. Slightly boxy, but still looks wonderful on! Also, slightly itchy, but definitely not bad. Super cute!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goes with everything! Love anything Donegal but sometimes the pattern can be loud and limits what you can wear with it. This is a subtle pattern so you can wear it with everything, even patterns. I love how soft it is and the length is perfect. Worth the money as it will be a staple in my closet for years! Quality is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love donegal This cardigan in my opinion ran slightly large. I normally take a size large in Madewell tops but got this in a medium with plenty of room. I really like the color, it is different from most cardigans out there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cozy cardigan I got this in store kind of on a whim after chatting with a woman who was getting one. I got an XS, which is my usual top size. If I could trade I think I would've gotten an XXS because there's a lot of fabric around the chest that adds a bit of unnecessary bulk. I didn't realize until after taking the tags off, def not a deal breaker though. The fabric looks like cookies and cream meets cookie dough with the brown flecks, it's really unique! Plus if it pills you won't be able to tell as easily as compared to a solid color (either way nothing a sweater comb can't fix). My mom tried it on and wanted one too so I ordered one for her that night! kudos to Madewell for making something that appeals to a wide age range. It's really warm and so cozy, definitely recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Winter Cardigan Love this sweater but will return for one size smaller. It runs big.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice style but runs LARGE!!!!! I love the fabric and the style of this sweater, but it runs very large and so it's going back. I would normally wear a medium or large, but ordered a small after reading other reviews. It is still huge on me which is not at all flattering given it's a boxy long sweater to start with. I'm sorry because I really like the color and the flecks in the yarn make it look interesting.
