Lovely and versatile
It was not until I tried this cardigan on in the shop that I decided I just had to have it although I do think it is a bit on the expensive side hence not full marks. It is thin and light but keeps you warm. I would say the colour is somewhere between grey and beige with exciting detailing. The colour and shape makes it very versatile and could be worn with jeans and t-shirt to dress up a casual look or to accompany a dress or tunic or even with a skirt. I have worn it with the Mint Fox Tunic and Tula tunic in Russian red as well as with the croissant skirt and got lots of positive comments. I bought it in my normal size 12 and am very happy with the fit as I do not like cardigans to be to tight but this is definitely a cardigan you could size down.

itchy knit, odd shape
I had high hopes for this cardi as it looks so good on the model with the top, which I have. When it arrived the first thing I noticed was that it was more grey than I was expecting from the online pictures (guess it is described as grey colour), but I still liked the colour as it is the kind of shade that goes with lots of things - very neutral. However the fabric is very itchy - those with allergy problems beware. It also draped oddly on me - I liked the cable detailing down the front edges of the cardi but they seemed to make the knit quite heavy at the front which on me pulled the cardi down and then the back of the cardi ended up sticking out oddly. I also felt the back would look better a bit longer to offset the front. As for sizing I think one size down would be better as it is really roomy, even given it is a non-fastening drape style.
On the positive side the subtle floral design across the knit is lovely. Didn't work for me, but if you can get it to sit nicely it is a lovely versatile item!
