Monday Morning Cardigan!

The slipped stitch cardigan has taken on a new name – the Monday Morning Cardigan!

Monday Morning Cardigan

Throw on this cardigan and be ready to face your week! Classic style and feminine shaping make Monday Morning a great sweater for work, play, or whatever comes your way.

Knit seamlessly from the bottom up, with a beautiful slipped stitch pattern that lies flat and doesn’t contract like ribbing. Three-quarter sleeves stay out of your way, and visually interesting waist shaping enhances your curves!

    That’s beautiful, Laura! Can you please tell me what the upper arm circumferences are for the two largest sizes? I have bigger upper arms than most people with my chest circumference.

    Unbelieveable. Just a couple of weeks ago I was working something small and utilitarian in this pattern and thought – this would be great in a sweater and now HERE IT IS!

    Very cool! I love the interest in the waist shaping. You are modeling the 38″ bust, correct?

    Oh, awesome! I’ve been waiting impatiently for this one. And I love that you’ve got a “buy now” button–it’s a huge improvement over calling on the phone and having a hard copy mailed from Canada!

    Really love this sweater. Great for work. Can’t wait to make it in Laurel. I think the slip stitches will really pop!

    Hi Laura! Had to comment on your latest pattern design. I love this stitch pattern. I’ve noticed it out there quite a bit this season. And you made it in my favorite color so I’m really anxious to make one for myself. Very classic. Thanks for taking the time to write it up.

    Hi Laura..

    I have to say each time I see a new knit
    pattern you’ve designed & knitted up – I
    would like to have it immediately !!
    I really do like your styles and as
    yet haven’t seen one that I didn’t like.
    They are so classic and don’t appear
    to be too difficult..
    Even though I have been knitting since
    a young girl, I’m still a beginner in
    my mind.. always learning a new stitch
    or technique..

    I have a couple of questions for you,

    Is there a Cosmicpluto Knits Pattern
    Book available? And where might I b
    able to purchase it here in Vancouver,

    Can we send you a Money-Order to pay
    for the various patterns we wish
    to buy from you?

    I am retired, I don’t use Credit
    cards anymore.
    Living on a low income doesn’t
    allow me to be extravagant as
    I once was when I was working.

    Continued success!!
    It is so nice to see you’re
    based in Toronto.

    Thank you again.
    Happy Knittin & Stitchin !
