Beautiful sweater--heavy and warm; seems to run a bit large...

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Gloria from Southern California on Monday, January 25, 2016
I have been wanting a Peregrine cardigan since I first saw them here on STP several years ago; always hesitated because of the cost as well as concerns about fit and style (I like chunky sweaters, but prefer the length to fall at lower hip or below. This is the first longer version I have seen, and when it went on sale, I decided to order it, and I am very happy with my purchase. This is a heavy and substantial sweater--warm and very well constructed, and it should last me for years. I do think it runs a bit large--it is roomy through the torso but not over-sized enough for me to want to try exchanging for a smaller size. I am a bit of an apple shape, though, so I think a slim woman might need to size down. I bought this in XL, but will probably try L next time. I got the grey and it is lovely, a soft dark shade of charcoal--very flattering. The only thing I don't like is that I find the pocket placement a little low. In the picture, the models hands fit comfortably in the pockets, but I am only 5'4" and I find that my finger tips only reach to about mid-pocket--not a big deal for me really, but this sweater might not work for a petite woman, at least in the larger sizes.
