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.
Let me know if you have any questions! I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I do 🙂
With Love, Kaitlin
