Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite Sweater I've had my eye on this for a while, and could not resist any longer when it went on sale. It's just beautiful with gorgeous autumn colors, and I've received many compliments in the couple of times I've worn it. It drapes beautifully and is a bit lighter weight, which is fine for me here in Texas. I like the fit of the arms, but I do think they could be a bit snug if you carry weight there. I do have to turn up the sleeves as the arms are too long for me, reaching past my fingertips, but it does not detract from the look of the sweater at all. I LOVE IT!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended....with some reservations I've had this for over a month and "waffled" over what to write. Overall, it is really attractive and I will enjoy wearing it. The variegated threads in the knit are brighter, clearer colors than you might expect; yes, there is the ubiquitous terracotta, but it is a bright/light orange and combined with a true dark red, clear blue, and leaf green (NOT the chartreuse-y tone that comes across on my monitor). The geometric design doesn't stand out sharply and the black ends up looking heathered. It is a knockout with charcoal jeans and that red layering T. I've hand knit this interesting silhouette twice - a long horizontal rectangle with cylindrical sleeves "planted" into it. Those vertical folds fall from the front of the shoulder and are, by far, at their most flattering in this very lightweight knit which avoids a bulky appearance. It is not overly warm and will have a long season of wearability. I suspect the silk content is what minimizes fuzziness. Its lightweight nature, however, will make it prone to snags. My only complaint is that, as with many PC cardigans, the sleeves and the armhole openings seem to be made for someone with "toothpick" arms. It is tedious to pull on over the sleeve of the layering T and then any arm movement tugs at the sleeve seam; I will have to be careful not to inadvertently rip it. For this price, I was disappointed that the front bands were applied/stretched more tightly up one side than down the other and the one side needed to be blocked out in order to hang equally. My usual M fits, but without any leeway across the back; do not size down. All that said, I think it will be worth the extra care and has the potential to be a favorite casual go-to for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Autumn Palette This is one of the few P.C. apparel garments, without a 'fit description,' therefore, I thought it looked voluminous enough to try size Small. The sleeves were too tight, & tugging in the upper arm, & stressed shoulder seam. Still, I like this Vista Grande Cardigan very much, 1) Alpaca/Silk combo, what's not to love? 2) No buttons are always my preference 3) the Autumn Palette is beautiful. so the Small got returned, & I just received a Medium. The shoulders are now comfortable. Just for perspective, my shoulders are narrow, my arms are average -- not thin, nor husky. The body of either Sm. or Med., could have worked. And the weave is fairly loose, so it succeeds as the perfect Autumn cardigan, with something non-bulky, like a Layering Tee. Looking forward to when our Saguaros shed their leaves to harken the approach of the Autumn Season.
