I recently posted some of my favorite t-shirt patterns for women, but here are some t-shirt patterns for everyone else. When I was looking for patterns to use with blake, I found there to be a TON of women’s patterns, quite a bit of stuff for kids and not so much for men. I guess that isn’t too surprising, but that makes it all the more worthwhile to share my findings!
For men, we’ve got Eugene by Seamwork, a classic henley-style t-shirt.
The men’s Metro T-shirt by Liesl + Co is a great, classic t-shirt.
There’s also Paxson by Seamwork, which is a raglan-style t-shirt for men, but it’s currently under construction and not available. It’ll be nice when it is available, because a basic raglan pattern for men is hard to find. I’ve looked…
For kids, there are so many good ones. Here are some of my favorites.
The Field Trip Raglan by Oliver + S, is a great raglan option for boys–with a pocket.
The School Bus t-shirt by Oliver + S is a great basic t-shirt pattern for boys.
I added contrasting cuffs and a pocket to this one. The pocket was quite the highlight for my nephew. Not pictured, but within minutes of putting it on, he was delighted to discover that he could fit his entire hand in the pocket. Score!
Another kid’s t-shirt that I haven’t tried, but would like to try is the Flashback Skinny Tee by Made By Rae. It’s really cute, and I like the wider cuffs.
The Lunch Box Tee by Oliver + S is one that I’m hoping to whip up this week since my niece is coming to visit.
I think a striped version of the short-sleeve length would be very cute in some blake. (And the culottes might need to be made too–so cute!)
I really enjoyed the feedback and comments that I received after my last t-shirt post. You guys pointed me towards some good stuff to check out, including the Sewaholic’s Renfrew Top, Hey June’s Lane Raglan and Love Notions’s Laundry Day Tee (available in sizes XS-XXXL).
What other knit patterns are you a fan of?
