Not all knitting patterns are created equal. If you’ve been knitting for any amount of time- you already know this. A lot of patterns don’t come in plus sizes, and that can be frustrating for knitters. So today I decided to feature some beautiful t-shirt knitting patterns that are available in plus sizes.

1. The Lesley Tee Knitting Pattern by Noma Ndlovu

Noma is a knitwear designer based in Johannesburg, South Africa, who has designed a huge variety of garments and accessories! Her variety of beautiful patterns, and understanding of flattering, beautiful design puts her at the top of my list! Check out all of her designs on Ravelry.

The Lesley tee calls for fingering weight yarn on size US 4 knitting needles. Skills you will need to know:

Basic yarn over increases
M1L/M1R increases
Knitting a lot of stitches (on the last few repeats)
Twisted rib

2. The Rift T-shirt by Jacqueline Cieslak

I love this T-shirt Knitting Pattern because of the wide variety of customization options. The pattern is $8.00, but well worth it considering that you can choose your own neckline, bust darts, and other important fit details for this deceptively simple tee. The designers also created a few video tutorials for the more challegning parts of the pattern like picking up underarm stitches, German short rows, and 3-needle bind off. Get Rift on Ravelry today!

The Rift tee calls for sport weight yarn on size 8 circular needles.

3. As If Tee by Shay Johnson of Knit and Croshay

You might already be following Shay on Instagram, and if so, I know you’ve seen this tee! Featuring a sheer neckline, this t-shirt knitting pattern is the perfect way to use that mohair in your stash! The peekaboo effect of this t-shirt is sexy and fun, and looks amazing in any size or color! It’s no surprise that it’s popular on Ravelry, with over 400 projects!

The As If tee calls for Aran weight yarn as well as mohair lace.

4. Marie Tee Knitting & Crochet Pattern by Jessica Carey of The Hook Nook

For those of us who love knitting and crochet equally, this easy t-shirt knitting pattern is fun, funky, and unique. It features a simple sillhouette embellished with super chunky crochet stripes in the front. I can’t wait to make this one for myself. This t-shirt knitting pattern calls for Lion Brand Wool Ease yarn, size 8 knitting needles , and an H crochet hook.

5. Chicane Tee by Jimenez Joseph

For people who love layering, lace knit tees are a staple for your summer knitting patterns. This lacy t-shirt knitting pattern features dolman sleeves and a boatneck neckline- a flattering shape on everyone. I love the bright tomato red she knit it in. The Chicane t-shirt knitting pattern comes with 2 versions for 2 different weights of yarn! One version for DK weight yarn, and another version for fingering weight yarn! I love the versatility of this pattern because it means you can use what you already have in your stash!
