Baileys is a delicate cardigan that balances elegant details and simple design in one sweater. A cable and lace motif in a seemingly complex pattern (really it’s not!), a lace collar and open neckline, delicate buttons, and a creamy silk-merino- cashmere yarn add to the light, feminine vibe of the design, while a strong cabled button band, stockinette panels, and a turned hem bring the sweater back down to earth. Simple and flirty at the same time.
