Part of our cozy yet stylish Montreal Lounge Collection, the Plateau Joggers are an elevated take on classic knit jogging pants. With a high rise, unique wrap-around pockets, and a comfy elastic waist, they are ideal loungewear at home or on the street.
View A is a relaxed fitting pant with an optional drawstring waist and two choices of ankle finish: a fabric cuff or gathered elastic hem. View B is a pair of shorts with a gently scalloped hem. Optional back pockets can be added to either view.

How do I download my PDF Pattern?
First, we suggest creating an account in our shop so you can access all your files in one place at any time!
After you place an order, you will land on a page with a custom download link. You can download your pattern then, or use the link included in the order confirmation sent via email. If you don’t receive a download link via email, please check your junk mail as it may have been rerouted (and add us to your safe senders list so it doesn't happen again!)
Am I charged for taxes?
All Canadians are charged GST and possibly PST depending on where they live in Canada. We do not charge taxes in the US.
Customers based in the EU and UK will also be charged VAT on all goods. Regulations have changed in recent years requiring VAT to be collected based on where the customer resides (and not where the company is located) so we are legally required to collect and remit VAT even though our company is based in Canada. You can read more about the VAT regulations here.
What currency will I be charged in?
Use the dropdown at the top of our menu to choose USD, CAD, AUD, GBP, or EUR dollars to view prices and checkout in the currency of your choice.
For AUD, GBP, and EUR currencies, the price you'll see is linked to the daily exchange rate between USD and your currency, which means prices may fluctuate. For our Canadian customers, we have established set prices that will not vary with exchange rates.

Most shipping services we offer come with a tracking number. This will be sent to you via email you once the order has been processed in our warehouse.
Given the huge volume of mail and the challenges that the pandemic, holiday season, and environmental conditions impose on the performance of the mail service, we ask you to please be patient with the delivery of your packages, and get in touch after 3 weeks for Canadian and US shipments, and 6 weeks for international shipments.
If the above mentioned waiting times have elapsed, please message us about your delay. We’ll be happy to work with you to figure out a solution.

Good instruction with clear pictures. I quite like the illustration in regrades to the different stitches and where to us then. A good sew and looking forward to making another pair
Such a pretty pattern - so comfy and easy to sew :)
I started making these joggers with some trepidation. I am a beginner with no previous experience of sewing trousers other than pyjama bottoms. The pattern and fabric were purchased as a kit from Guthrie and Ghani which included a helpful tips video. The pattern instructions were actually brilliant. I had them sewn up in no time and slipped them on to check the fit and they were so comfy I kept them on! I quickly made another pair in 100 % cotton fleece back sweatshirt fabric from Mind the Maker. They are very cosy although I used single jersey for the front pockets to reduce the bulk. As noted by Lauren from Guthrie and Ghani it is worth prepping the back pockets as per the instructions, but then don’t attach them until you can try the joggers near the end of the make. The pockets will look flattering if in the right place. I lowered mine an inch.
So comfy. Just right for cooler days. Fabulous pattern. I like the way the pocket is attached to the waist and not the side seam, also the variety of ways of finishing the bottom of the legs. Just making another pair for grand daughter.
I wear these all the time. Easy to follow instructions and they look great!
These joggers come together easily and are brilliantly comfortable to wear. I've made two pairs which are on high rotation during the South Aussie winter.
