"I have one of the solid color shaggy knit sweaters and I love it, so I decided to get this one as well. It's really comfy (like my other sweater) and so pretty! I love layering it with the Voile and Lace Trapeze slip, or any slip really. This one seems to a little less loose as the other, but it still isn't fitted. I sized down from a medium to a small. I would definitely recommend getting one of these sweaters :)"
"I tried this on at a store that carries Free People, (Nordstrom) and although this was cozy, it was very roomy and the front was pretty boxy on me. What a bummer because it's so soft and nice! (For reference I am 5'6, 115 32A and I tried on the XS. My mom is 5'4 130, 34C and she tried on the medium and it was pretty boxy on her too.)"

Review 4 for Striped Shaggy Knit Pullover
body type:long and lean
:( big hole in the armpit
"Loved the sweater, sadly big hole in armpit after one wear! I detest returning things. Wish I had read the reviews for the plain one which suffers the same fate quite often. Way too expensive to forgive a giant hole."

Review 5 for Striped Shaggy Knit Pullover
great cozy sweater
"I love this sweater and have it in two other colors. Its soft and cozy and covers your bum nicely. I wear it with my yoga pants over a dress or with my jeans. The only complaint I have is that I liked how the sweater was a bit oversized and the sleeves ran long. This sweater (same size as the others) the sleeves are hitting just at the wrist, top of my hand. I wish they could stay consistent with the sizing. Same sweater in the same size should be the same. This is the only reason I did not give it five stars. Free People makes all my favorite sweaters..... I'm 5'6 140lbs and I buy a small. I hope this helps ... Enjoy"
"Love this sweater! Its very soft and also roomy. This is the second shaggy knit I have and love them both! I ordered this in the black and ivory and the colors are true to the pics. The black is a deep black. Im 5'3 34d and the small is perfect!!"
"I love these shaggy pullovers. I have several colors in the solid one and just got this one in the black and ivory stripes. So soft, cozy, and comfortable. It's over-sized so a small fits my 5'10/135 lbs. frame just right. An FP favorite of mine!"
"I just purchased this and I love it! The black is a nice dark black and the white is slightly off-white. I have two more of these shaggy sweaters in the natural and mint. And I love those as well. These shaggy sweaters are made to be big and baggy. I bought this one in an XS (my usual FP size). The sleeves are shorter than the other ones but its nice because I can push them up easily to a chic 3/4 length sleeve. The other ones have extra long sleeves about to my knuckles. Very soft and cozy. I would highly recommend it. For reference I am 5'4", 120lbs."

new favorite sweater.
"I fell in love the second I saw it in the store. I got the pink and cream one- just like strawberries and creme! It's so soft and thick. I own about 5 of free people's laguna coast sweaters from two seasons and they last a while, but I can tell that this sweater will last even longer because the yarn used is a bit thicker and you don't have to worry as much about ripping it. That said, you can definitely wear this with just a tank top or even just a bra if you get a more fitted size since it's so thick, it isn't see through. It's cozy, soft, warm, everything that is amazing in a sweater. I'm not sure, but I don't think this sweater will stretch out as much as some of the other ones because it is tightly crocheted/knitted.
Size wise, depending if you want a more neater fit or a slouchier fit I would stick with your regular size or size up (also depends what you wear under it). The sleeves are meant to be a little shorter, which I also love because I can show off all my bracelets!
Maybe I'll have to pick up the black and white one too- I hope there are more colors!! <3"
"I wouldn't have taken a second look at this sweater online, but I spotted it in the store and fell in love. I layered it over the floral mesh lace dress in black. It's roomy, so it lends itself to layering, but also would look nice over a t-shirt and jeans. So cute!"
