Essential Knit Cardigan
I was disappointed with this purchase and had to return it. It was not true to size. it seems Blair is making their clothing larger so I am having a hard time finding the correct size. I do like a loose fit to the tops i wear but this was very large and didnt look nice on. the fabric is nice and soft and is lightweight. This cardigan would be great for the spring weather.

Exactly what I needed
I purchased this sweater in black as soon as it appeared on the website and I wish I had gone ahead and bought it in navy. By the time I had worn the black sweater and went back to get it in navy, the navy was sold out. I bought it in blue heather and am sure I will wear it a lot. These sweaters are exactly the right weight to wear in a heated office in winter or air conditioned one in spring or summer. I love the length - it is long enough to cover all the blouses I wear with it, and I love the 3/4 sleeves. I hope Blair will continue to offer this sweater and add other dark colors (and restock navy). This one is destined to be a classic.

As a "softie" for cardigans I own many. This one happens to be just about the softest of all that I own. It is very comfortable to wear and it feels so good on. It does not run true to size on me.

Another looks good in catalog but not so great
I loved this in the catalog. It is flemsey material clings to you, runs a bit small.

Nice Spring Cardigan
I purchased this cardigan in the Coral to go with the square neck stripe top. It makes a very nice set for Spring before the weather gets to hot. I ordered the small and it's a pretty good fit for me through the shoulders and the bust, but the length was way too long. I'm a short 5' 3" petite. I was able to alter the length by taking off about two inches and it looks and fits just fine now. The fabric is a very nice soft knit and the construction is very good. I'm looking forward to a lot of casual wear from this set.

I now have the cardigan in two colors and am thinking about ordering more. It is so comfortable, soft, fits perfectly, and washes like a dream. I do have to order a larger size with Blair but know what fits me best from their catalog.

I ordered this cardigan in every single color. I normally order a "L" from Blair and it was the perfect fit. I am 5'6" tall and a 42 bust. I am proportionate in weight for my height; albeit a "bit" busty. It covered my hips and gave my overall torso a longer length in appearance. At over 60yrs. old, we older women tend to look more "squatty" because of our spines shrinking. Longer length sweaters help to give us a more elongated appearance back. The sweater is SO-O-O-O soft and encomparable in quality and construction; but then. . . .I expect that from Blair. Rarely have I been disappointed. It's a perfect weight cardigan for the mid-spring temperatures and cooler summer nights. If you like the appearance of this cardigan. . . .order it! It comes exactly as you see in the photo. No surprises with this welcomed addition to my wardrobe!

This is a nice cardigan to cover up the striped shirts and makes a great outfit. Haven't really worn this yet though I h ave worn the shirts and shorts to match. I love the feel of the shirts. It is getting chilly this weekend and this will come in handy. Thanks.
