Rated 4 out of 5Â by JulesMilo SO COZY!
At first glance in the store, I was thinking this was going to be another oversized sweater that looked more like a blanket. I was pleasantly surprised how cute it looked! At 100lbs, 5'5.5" and 25 in jeans, I wasn't swallowed up with the amount of material. It came past my butt (I'm wearing shorts in the photos) and the sleeve length is perfect! Pockets are a super plus!
My only gripe is the buttons. You have to pull pretty hard to unsnap them with fear of pulling the material. Otherwise you have to dig your nails in between the snaps to pry them apart. Definitely should have been a button/hole design, not a snap button. As you can see in my photos the first flap snaps by the opposite shoulder and the second flap snaps with a second button.
Material is super soft and substantial. Perfect to cuddle up with a cup of hot chocolate! Loooove..! <3

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Cheason Recommend with caution...
The material is substantial. It's soft and warm. At 5'1, 115 lbs, and 32B I ordered an XS but when I pulled it out of the bag it looked extremely large! Either it has been on the hanger too long or I received a defect. At the least it was a large. Truly disappointing because I love the style. I like and don't mind roomy sweaters but c'mon?!
In my attempt to remedy the problem I washed and dried--albeit care instructions to dry clean-- in washing machine and dryer (both front loaders.) It shrunk a bit but not enough. The material is stretchy and with use will stretch back out. The arms aren't as fitted as it looks on the model. As a matter of fact there's plenty room that the material hangs. Wish it came in petite or heck even an XXS. The snap buttons are just a little annoying to unsnap. Really gotta dig a nail in there. Watch out brittle nails!
It looks great with leggings and skinny jeans but I fear after a while whatever shape it has will be lost due to its stretchy material. It will be deduced to a lounge, layering sweater.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by SweaterLover123 Very disappointed.
I am now on sweater number two. The first sweater developed a hole behind the left shoulder along the seam line after wearing only around my house three or four times. So, I returned it. They shipped me another sweater which I washed once according to the directions (after wearing camping once) and there is a hole in the right wrist area now, also along a seam line. I didn't wrestle a bear or build a log cabin so not quite sure where the wear and tear is coming from.
I always buy myself a big comfy sweater to start out the winter and this is my first time purchasing one from Antrho. I am a really disappointed in the quality and hope this isn't indicative of future expensive knit purchases.

Style #:25854373Stitches, slouch and a whole lot of cozy is our mantra for this season's sweaters. The cushy-soft drape of this cardigan by Yellow Bird pairs perfectly with stripes and skinny jeans and adds extra warmth to bare dresses.
