This is an easy-peasy top down Malabrigo Rios jumper. I love this yarn as it comes it so many vibrant colours like Lettuce (my fave) and Frank Ochre (my second fave!) and I really love how it knits up. I truly have never found a Rios colour I don’t love.

But, I am yet to find a pattern that’s really easy so I thought, why not make my own! I have designed three sizes: 0-6 months, 6-12 months and 1-2 years using only one sized needles so there isn’t any stress on remembering when to switch needle sizes. As it’s knitted from the top down, there isn’t any need to sew things together (who’s got time for that anyway)

For the 0-6 months, you will only need one skein.
For the 6-12 months and 1-2 years, you will need two skeins but there will be leftover yarn for another project.

I’m really happy with how it’s turned out and hope you enjoy making your jumpers too. I have also included my email address in case you have any questions about the pattern - enjoy :slightly_smiling_face:
