I just today received this stunning sweater and am so pleased with its design, fit and quality! It hangs exactly as pictured on the model and it is soft and warm. I ordered this in the neutral, size Large. I was a wee bit concerned that the Large might be too big as I tend to run in between a medium and large in Anthropologie offerings. Given my preference for layering however, this sweater affords a roomy enough fit without appearing over sized or too large! I was also extremely happy to find that the sweater looks fabulous whether hanging open OR buttoned up at the collar. Both looks are lovely and I adore the Sherpa collar. This sweater is MADE to look good with hats and I intend to get a lot of mileage out of wearing it with my wide array of hats and scarves!

Love this Cardigan
This Cardigan is one of the best Anthro purchases I made lately. It runs a tiny bit large and is really Soft, Not scratchy at all and feels great. I get many compliments from people when I wear it and is warm enough to wear by itself with no Coat over it. As mentioned in other Reviews yes it fuzzes and pills some but that is because of the Yack Wool and I can overlook that easily. I love this Cardigan and wear it often and fits nicely and looks great.

Soft and cuddly
Waited and watched for this cardigan to come down in price and a little disappointed in myself for waiting to purchase! Oh my it is so soft, every bit of it. Nice & warm and the rose color is quite pretty. I didn't realize how lengthy it is and happy to know I can also wear this cardigan with leggings! So cute and really darling on. Got many compliments from the hubby too so you can never go wrong with that! Great buy and addition to my wardrobe.
I bought the turquoise version in size XL and it fits pretty close to what is pictured. I found it a little smaller & shorter but still comfortable. I had to stretch out the inside portion of the arms to make it looser. The mix of colors is just as pretty in person as in the photos. The lighter shade of robin's egg blue is flattering & I love the mix with the teal. The textures are fantastic. My daughter said she wanted to hug me more when I wore this. It is so soft. I've worn it twice and it hasn't pilled. It is a good medium weight so I'll use this for winter & colder spring days. If you want a looser fit, I recommend sizing up.

Beautiful and luxurious
This sweater is gorgeous and soft. Very high quality materials and design. It is so warm and cozy- I got it in the beige/white- there is definitely more of a contrast in colors in real life than the picture, which I liked. It does flare out a bit at the hips as one user noted, but it doesn't really bother me. I can't wait to wear it!

UNIQUE & CHIC
This is such a unique cardigan - and what a pleasing color palette too.
I bought the teal in XSP - and it fits so snug !
The contrast between the sweater-like material with a textural design and soft matte felt is just lovey...and definitely keeps me warm.
I bought this a couple months ago and it's been so warm to use at home. It's the strangest item of clothing in my closet. It isn't flattering on me so I don't wear it out. On me, it looks like I tried to knit a sweater and stopped midway to start making a throw. But, the colors are beautiful and the quality of the knit is outstanding. I love the tassels & pom-poms. It's also very soft and cozy. It's the type of odd piece where you'll either love it or hate it. I love it for home but don't have the confidence to wear such a unique shawl in public since I know it will get quizzical looks. If you find one in your store, I recommend trying it on. I enjoy having this fun, weird shawl.

I just got it!
I went to my local Anthro store and bought this today, for I saw the 20% off sweater ad online. This is perfect for San Antonio fall days! The knit is soft and luxurious feeling, and isn't itchy. The scarf is long but wraps up easily around the neck and shoulders, and hangs beautifully. You can dress this up or down, but chances are I will be wearing it with jeans. A great outdoor walking sweater. I got this in replace of the tartan plaid coat, which is lovely but just makes me look like a kid wearing a blanket, so I returned that this morning and snatched this instead.
An aside: since I was by myself this morning shopping, I tried on several cardigans, and was given very helpful advice from the staff at the local store. Great job ladies!

Madly in love with this sweater! I kept staring at it online trying to figure it out and then decided to go ahead and order it and just see for myself just how it was made. It is so unique, so lush, so yummy, the pom-poms have little metallic subtle threads going through them....the sweater itself is cozy beyond words and the scarf, before wrapping it, drapes all the way to the ground so there is so much to play with and creativity. I also love that it is short sleeved so it gives you the opportunity to wear it more times than not. I have so many gorgeous sweaters in my closet and this is a top five. can't wait to wear it
Nice, soft material. Not at all itchy! I agree that it is more of a pumpkin color and the cable pattern adds interest to the sweater. I love the length and the drape. I would buy this is the ivory if it was available too!

Beautiful, high quality sweater
This is a beautifully made sweater! Perfect length - can be paired with jeans or leggings. I'm a Small to Medium on top and the Medium works well for me.

Cozy sweater for the winter!
This sweater is very soft with an interesting knit. I purchased the "yellow" which is actually
pumpkin orange, much like what you see online. It's not bulky or boxy at all. I purchased the XS petite.
It is very flattering. The cut is not high low which I like, with slits on either side. Hopefully, it
will wear well. That remains to be seen. Lately, I have found the quality of a lot of the clothing is
not equal to the prices Anthro charges.
I loved this sweater since I first saw it in the store and finally broke down and bought it. It is a beautiful color and the fabric is soft and kind of spongey, like boucle. My only complaints with this sweater is that due to the pointelle type of detail on the front, it looks best with a dark colored cami underneath- otherwise the contrast of light skin or a light colored cami shows up through the holes in the sweater and it looks bizarre, like it's linty or something. If you have darker skin or wear a dark colored bra you may be able to get away with nothing underneath, but it didn't work for me. I also needed to size up to a M from my usual XS in order to get the flare at the bottom to hit in the right spot (not too high) so that it was flattering and enabled me to wear it with leggings. The shoulders a re a little loose now, but its not noticeable and the length is much better this way.

This sweater is a gorgeous teal color with a soft mesh overlay that swims behind you like a mermaid tail. I'm petite (5' 1"), but tried the regular size on in-store and bought it. The regular size makes for a great tunic length sweater. I already received several compliments on the sweater!

This sweater is just gorgeous, I'm head over heels in love with it. It's so soft and fluffy. The cutout in the back is so pretty and even kind of subtly sexy for a sweater, lol. If you're not one for the exposed back look, this would also be gorgeous layered over a top or dress. The colors are so pretty and true to how they look in the pictures. I actually bought both colors and I love both of them. If there are any negatives I would say that it is somewhat delicate and the material is a little thin but not cheap looking. Personally, I don't tend to wear bulky sweaters well, so this is a good fabric thickness for me. I would say sizing is for the most part true to size; however, you need to choose the size according to your upper body. I'm generally an xsp but relative to my size, I'm bigger up top: shoulders are broader, arms are muscular and I'm a 32c so a small petite was definitely the best size. I would say buy your true size if you are narrow-average in the shoulders, have thin arms and your chest measurement is small-average relative to your clothing size. If you're not all 3 of those things I just listed, or you plan to layer, go with your larger top size. I think with layering it will only work with smoother type tops and dresses because to much detail or bunchiness of any kind will show through the sweater. Overall I say this sweater is beautiful and recommended.
This pullover sold out within a few days of its first appearance. On anthro day, all the xs and s sizes were sold out online, and within two days all sizes were sold out online. I had to call cs to locate a lingering xs to get mine (I received mine from anthro at Boston within 48 hours of placing a charge send so that's excellent service!!!) Anyway, this pullover is super soft and has a nice casual, but romantic feel to it. It looks exactly as it does in the pictures based on the fit and color. I normally take xsp, but the xs fits me fine (the elbows line up with the lace elbow pads and the sweater portion ends above my hips),
Anyway, I knocked down a star because I'm annoyed it sold out so quickly, it came in only one color, and that it's a little pricey for a thin sweater. However, since it's beautiful and easy to pair with, I'm sure I will get a lot of use out of it come fall so I can justify the price.
Please bring this beauty back in royal blue, light pink, and moss green! Or just bring it back!

Very Pretty & Comfy!
I ordered this sweater immediately after seeing it online. I ordered it in black and gray. They just came today and I absolutely love the black one. The lace on the gray sweater is too yellow for me. It is not a light ivory lace as shown. So, I may exchange the gray one for the plum color. I can't wait to wear this sweater, it is beautiful and the black lace gives it a feminine feel. I ordered the Xl because I am a 36D. It fits perfect.

I Love this Sweater! I bought in Black, size M (I'm 5'6 155 pounds). It's nice and soft and nips in at the waist. The lace flares out at the back and is a really cute detail! Wear it with pants in a different color to see the lace at the bottom.
I tried this on in-store and on the hanger absolutely loved it. I tried on the black which is not a "jet black" - more like a very very dark charcoal gray (almost black). The stitch detailing is gorgeous and the neckline is very flattering, and it feels really nice (lightweight) on. However - this whole "short hem in front/long hem in back" trend is just not something I am a fan of. It is too long in the back when compared with the front length. And the front is just way too short. I tried on a Medium initially and it fit beautifully everywhere (except for being too short) and then sized up to a Large hoping that it would help with the length issue; it looked a little better but was a little too big everywhere else.
I have an hourglass figure and only 5'2" - I am guessing that this would look better on someone with narrower hips, and taller.
Very disappointed as this sweater is like 95% perfect, but that remaining 5% falls way too short (no pun intended ;)

This sweater is so soft! Beautiful autumnal orange color and love the textural elements. The short-long hem gives it an edginess. It is just barely long enough in front to avoid being over-cropped in my opinion.

Versatile in black
I bought this before it went on sale because I loved the hi-lo hem of this quality sweater. And I bought it in black and it was great for the winter here in Arizona. I've (hand) washed it a few times and it seems to have held up perfectly. I love throwing it on with my jeans because it makes me feel a bit dressier. Now that it's on sale, I am thinking about buying a different color.
