Chunky knit slouchy stripe pullover sweater with an oversized silhouette, dropped shoulders, and straight sleeves.
GREAT FALL SWEATER
This a great chunky sweater. It is 100% cotton so I'm suspecting that like all cotton sweaters it will stretch a bit as you wear it, and when washed will need to be stretched out again. I love cotton sweaters - they are great for a cold summer day and well into the fall. Even the odd winter day (here in Canada). I bought the light one and it has wonderful color tones and is as shown. The size is loose and a bit boxy but it hangs well.
This is one of the thickest sweaters I own. I got it as a gift, and it's one of the best gifts ever! The yarn is very thick and it is soft, too. I got the lighter color and was a bit hesitant because of the price, but I decided to keep it because it is very comfortable and I love the colors. It could be worn in winter with a thin layer underneath as well as in the spring and maybe even summer when it's not too hot out. I would definitely recommend it!
About what you expect
This knit is very loose, so you get lots of holes, and believe me, with any kind of wind, it does't keep the cold at bay. At all. You'll have to wear something long sleeved underneath it. Also, it looks a lot softer than it is, especially after a wash (I machine washed it in cold/dellicate and laid it flat to dry). The knit becomes rather hard. This may be fixed by dry cleaning, I'm not sure. It's quite wide, so it has a slouchy look. I purchased the darker color and wear it over a very thin blue and tan rayon tank dress that comes to my knees, and it matches very well. I feel I can "hide" in the sweater, and yet I still flow rather elegantly. The sizing is right on, so if you're small, get a small. It'll still be boxy on you. It's a fine sweater on a 60 to 70 degree day without wind.
