Malo is a cute all-terrain cardigan, perfect for the little explorers and aspiring sailors! Whatever their age, they will love its hood and pockets, made to keep all their treasures. But Julie has not forgotten you, who will knit it. Indeed, the beautiful finishes of this design make it a pleasure to knit, full of technical details that will keep you from being bored! Plus, you can easily adapt it to suit the tastes of the little ones, playing on the colours, the width of the stripes or even removing them entirely. If you take a look at the Ravelry page of the pattern, you will actually find inspiring ones!

The cardigan is knitted from the bottom to the top, with set-in sleeves worked with short rows, without any seams.
