Cute and clever intarsia elbow patches and the whimsical wink of contrast-color pocket bags move this cotton/wool cardigan to the head of the class — and the front of her closet. It's a comfortable and stylish layering piece to take her through several seasons. V-neck. Button front. Long sleeves. Side vents. Hip length (slightly longer in back). Cotton/wool blend. Imported.
I washed this sweater as recommended -- cold water, gentle cycle, dry flat -- and it shrank 2-3 inches in length and about 2 inches in width. The fabric also pilled quite a bit.
It was tunic-length to begin with, so it still fits my daughter. But it's an entirely different sweater, and not nearly as cute.

This sweater is cute and very soft but just like the other intarsia sweaters the fit is boxy and the sleeve cuffs are way too big. I notice all of the pictures of these sweater also only show the cuffs rolled or pushed up. Cute sweater though and we will keep them and just roll the sleeves up like they show it on the models.
