Women's 3/4-sleeve Lofty Cotton Cable Trim Crewneck
Nice, Lightweight Sweater
I ordered three of these sweaters online, and kept two. I ordered the raspberry ice and light bright cyan in a Petite Large, and vibrant cobalt in a Large (because the Petite size was sold out). I am 5'4", 160 lbs., and normally wear between a 12 and 14 in tops/blouses. While the PL fit well (and I kept both of those), the L was way too big (not just too long) all over. I thought if the difference was only sleeve and body length, it wouldn't be an issue, but the shoulders and overall width in the L was much larger than the two petite large sweaters. As some reviewers have mentioned, this particular sweater is not heavyweight or thick so it's better suited for warmer winter climates or, if you're in a colder state like I am, wearing in late spring, early autumn, or in winter under a coat when shopping so you don't overheat. It's very pretty and flattering on. My favorite color was the vibrant cobalt as it was a brighter shade of navy, and I wish it had been available in my size. The raspberry ice is more of a Pepto Bismol pink than a light raspberry (which typically has more purple undertones), but it is still pretty. The light bright cyan isn't as vibrant in person as in the photo online, but it is a nice shade of medium blue with less of a turquoise undertone than one thinks of when they think of the color cyan.

Nice Cable Design
This fits nice and doesn't show what I want hidden. I like the cable design and the neckline. Hope the 3/4 sleeves don't bug me but it seems I am always pushing sleeves up anyway. I hate acrylic so the jury is out on the wash and feel issues. Wish they would use something else blended with cotton.

Very pretty, but...
I was very excited about this sweater. The fabric is beautiful. I thought it was a good weight for wearing to the office or shopping--not so heavy it would be too hot indoors but substantial enough when the weather is cold. The sizing was good, if a little on the trim side. Here's the reason I am returning it: the neckline is not flattering. I really, really wanted to love it, but when I put it on and looked in the mirror, it just didn't look right. That wide cable neckline running sideways just doesn't work for me. It would probably look better with a turtleneck or button-down underneath, but that's too many layers, and the 3/4 sleeves would make it a bit awkward. I would still recommend that you try it out--it may be something about my body shape.

Love this sweater!
The weight of this sweater is perfect. It's just right for wearing indoors or under a jacket. I prefer a sweater like this one that isn't bulky or scratchy. The colors are very pretty. I bought the cyan and the red and might consider getting another color. Nice for work or in a casual setting.

I LOVE this sweater and ordered two more. For me, in TN, it's perfect. It's a silky, medium weight, very comfortable sweater. I love the neckline and 3/4 sleeves. I agree that it isn't exactly a winter sweater, but it's a great one in between seasons. The cables are lovely and it isn't a bulky sweater.
Don't change a thing, except add more colors!

for spring, not a winter catalog
The bright blue depicted on the website is vibrant; the one I received is blue, but its dull. This is definitely a spring-weight sweater, not what I would have expected in a fall/winter catalog. Why not just make the sleeves full-length? Very disappointed in the quality based on my expectations in this price range. Returning :(

So happy to find a cable knit sweater that is cotton and not itchy wool or acrylic! The details on this sweater are lovely, the neckline is perfect and I love the 3/4 length sleeves. The 3/4 length sleeves and cotton fabric will keep this sweater from getting too hot. Amazing range of colors, although would have liked a few more jewel tones for winter, like a deep purple or emerald green. But overall, this is a great little sweater that will work with a lot in my closet. Thanks LE!

Really Light Weight
Very nice however I was not expecting this sweater to be as light weight as it is. Not exactly a winter sweater for those of us in the northern climate with the extreme cold. If you live in a more moderate climate this could be a year round sweater I think. I went up a size to make sure it wasn't a fitted style.

In recent years I have felt the quality of many of the Landsend items has gone down. This sweater was a nice surprise. It seems to be well-made with smooth seams and a rich red color. It feels very soft. I ordered it in a petite medium which fits well. It is a nice weight for a southern climate.

Liked the light bright cyan
I liked some of the colors I saw in the catalogue particularly the light bright cyan. In person, the color was just as lovely and I found the sweater long enough in the body for me I am 5'7- not tall, not short. My only minor quibble is that the sweater is a bit straight in the body. But still for this price (I had a 30% off coupon) I thought the overall quality was great and as I said I loved the color!
