Meet Monday Love Dress! It’s another wonderful, everyday sweater or better yet: a dress. This is my ultimate comfort sweater dress, looking modern and stylish for years to come.

Monday Love is a must knit! It’s definitely a must for everyone who already completed their Sunday Love Sweater, only to realize that it’s their new go-to sweater, in use all the time. To give that precious Sunday Love a little rest once in a while, Monday Love is a necessity in every knitter’s wardrobe. That’s how my Monday Love Dress got started!

The sweater dress is worked from top down in one piece. To make the knitting of the sweater easier you will work it on WS, Stockinette stitch side facing, and turn to reverse Stockinette side after finishing it.
