Baile is a cardigan, knit from bottom up with set in sleeves which are knit top-down. Button bands are knit with the body of the garment, with lace panels used for detail. Neckline ribbing is added later.

Part of an autumnal collection of knits, this cardigan is inspired by bright bales of hay, waiting patiently in the field to be moved. Baile features the leaves which fall in autumn.
