Rated 3 out of 5Â by LapTopDancer Wrong Color
first saw this cardi photo, I wanted to buy it NOW even though I have only 1 red item, a dress worn twice because red doesn't usually work for me. Last week, I saw it in the mall and was brand new on the sales floor. To the person asking about pilling under "questions", the pilling was already visible, small, but in no time you'll have to start pulling or cutting them off. It's made the same way as FP's other multi color acrylic sweaters. With their great designs, they use the cheapest blend and charge a premium price. #better acrylic yarns, don't pill#
Even though red isn't me, orange tones are worse. Since I was there, I tried all of the cardies on because FP sizing is usually all over the place. This time it is TTS. I normally wear M @ 5'3.
The first thing I noticed in person were the flowers not sharply defined, blended loosely into the black and colors were not as dark/sharp as in the photo and the pilling that's already starting just cheapens it. In person, the flower colors are a rusty red from dark to light, along with the orange tones, with some peach thrown in. It is knit heavy enough to
wear instead of a coat. Since my closets are 3/4 FP, I might still buy it because it's FP....but seriously doubt it, until it's marked waaaay down @ a dept store.. Some people might like the in person colors/construction but there is no getting around the floral pattern not being sharply defined as in the photos, looking more like huge random splotches of color. I could hand knit this and make it more defined than the machine that mass produced this cardi, except it would take 3 to 6 months to complete. LOL. So no 5 star rating because of the misleading photo.. I felt I should write something, because there are people who would like the "in person" colors and others are depending on the photo.

The color is true to the photo, so no surprises there and unlike what some other reviews reported, I didn't feel that the flowers were splotchy looking at all. They look just as they do in the picture. I purchased the Mulberry color which was my favorite of the lot. I bought my normal size small and I think it's a good fit. Yes, this is a big sweater, but at 5'4" I really don't feel like it's too overwhelming by any means. It still hits me about where it does on the model. For some reason I envisioned this sweater being thicker, but it's just fine the way it is. The size small and thickness of the sweater will make it great to layer with this spring/fall/winter. Thanks FP! This is definitely a winner!!!!! <3 I wish the blue color would come back in stock because I'd love to own that one as well!

Bought this in black and really love it! It's great as a sweater coat as well. Really stands out in a crowd. Receive so many compliments. Very warm. Slightly itchy- but nothing one cannot ignore. Beauty is pain and pain is beauty :) If it pills on you, take a sweater shaver over it and it is brand new again. Excellent purchase!!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by CarolinaMoon so cozy and cute!
This sweater/coat/robe is truly the coziest piece of clothing ever! I can't wait to layer it and see all the looks I can get out of it.
I would have to disagree that this runs large... I would say it's TTS, (it's just meant to look baggy)..and actually.. you could even size up if you'd prefer it to be loose in the sleeves, or if you want to wear it with, for example, a long sleeve thermal underneath.... (For reference, I'm 5'8", 135lbs and wear a size M in the FP thermals)...The medium cardi fit me okay, but I have broad shoulders and I felt the large flattered my frame better by making me look smaller... plus, the Medium sleeves came to my wrist, whereas the Large comes to that cozy length mid-fingers.
Anywho, there's no doubt this sweater will be a season staple!

I ordered this cardigan a while back and till now I didn't have a chance to wear it.
I love the colors and the generous fit, also the length is great for chilly days.
The only thing that was a surprise is that this cardigan is a bit itchy. I was expecting it to be as soft as the grey/blue Navajo cardigan I bought last year, but it's far from that.
You need to wear long sleeves under it.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Hollyw Comfy! Roomy! Extra Long on Purpose! And, Pretty!
I tried this sweater on in-store. This sweater is extra long (I'm 5'6") and it hits about 5" below my knees (this is a great FRESH & NEW look!!!). The pockets at its bottom are a hit! They beat the normal dynamics of mostly all sweaters. Love the pockets hanging extra low/ long. I'd wear this sweater like every day, even over my pajamas after I wake up in the morning & before I go to bed at night aaand I'd wear it while driving, having coffee with friends at the coffee shop, etc. This sweater is comfy and has the perfect amount of room in it. It is not a boxy sweater that makes you look big, it is one that is purposefully designed to make your body look slimmer than usual. One gripe, the (red and green) flowers' colors online pop waaay more vibrantly than seeing them in person (the blue flowers are a bit dull too on the grey one). It's a great throw sweater made for every day uses! - I'm waiting on other comments before deciding to purchase. I'd love to find out what others think about it!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by C Great sweater but be prepared to wait . . .
This is sweater is very easy to dress up or down and I don't find it itchy at all. I initially ordered it in black, and liked it so much after seeing it in stores that I ordered the blue and ivory online the next day (xs out of stock locally). The black sweater shipped and arrived quickly, as I am accustomed to with fp. However, it has been 6 days and the ivory sweater has yet to ship. When I called, I was told that this was because the orders were being fulfilled by fp retail stores. The bottom line is that this sweater is probably worth the wait, but be prepared to wait. Hopefully the store decides to ship my second sweater soon.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by RedMoon Exquisite and luxurious!
This sweater is gorgeous, soft and soooo beautiful! I am usually between a medium and a large and after reading the reviews I bought the medium; well even though it fit fine on top it was a little snug around the hips so I returned it for a large. The large fit perfect!! That is one thing to keep in mind if you have a generous derriere with wider hips! I bought the black and red and it is treasure that I will wear for years to come! Well worth the price. Thank you FP!
