Hello fellow knitters!  Today I am sharing a pattern to make this beautiful, Simply Stockinette Tee.  If you’ve been reading my site for a while, you have probably noticed that I love designing knitting patterns of items that are traditionally not knit.  Last week I shared my pattern for Cotton Summer Shorts [ linked here ] and last winter I designed a Bomber Hat [ linked here ] with the same concept in mind!  I believe that the beauty and wonder of hand-knit goods can be brought to every garment!

This t-shirt is a pattern that I have had in mind for some time but couldn’t quite get the fit right.  I wanted to have a soft drape but still a shirt that wasn’t see through or too airy.  To achieve this, I used Manos Del Uruguay Algeria yarn [ linked here ].  This yarn is 75% superwash merino and 25% polyamid which gives just a little added flexibility and durability to the fibers — just what I was looking for!

Worked in one piece using simple increases and decreases, this shirt is a relaxing pattern to make and knits up quite quickly because of its simplicity.  I like my clothes to fit a bit loose, so for reference, the size I am wearing is medium.  This pattern is sized in Small, Medium, Large, and X-Large.

The yarn is linked in this image below.  The best deal that I have been able to find on this yarn is through Amazon.  If you are making this tee in a size small, order two skeins, if you make it in size medium-xl order 3 skeins.  The exact color that I used seems to have been discontinued but if I were to make it again I would use the color Atlantico, Nobuk, or Fondo del Mar for a darker top.


If you would like to use a less expensive yarn or prefer not to use a variegated, hand painted yarn, I have linked Cascade Heritage Sock Yarn in the images below.  This yarn is about half the price but a similar fiber content.

  1. I really love it, but could I join it in the round instead of doing it flat? I just dont like that much purling! 🙂 I have the perfect yarn for this.

    1. It would mess with the neckline how it currently is! You’d have to modify it some. I wanted to make it so that it required the least amount of picking up stitches as possible! If you want to make a tee in the round you might be best off working top-down!

  2. Hi Kaitlin-
    Just found you via Pinterest with your herringbone scarf. Like Liz, can you provide any modifications to the pattern to work this one in the round? I’ve heard eliminating 2-4 stitches for each side seam, but too new to knitting to know what else to change. I’d pay for an ‘in the round’ version on Ravelry.
