Andrea's Tee | Free Knitting Pattern

Another very special pattern designed by Andrea Yetman, combining her love of arisanal yarns and designing stylish knitting patterns. This pattern is available free of charge thanks to Biscotte Yarns and Louise Robert Design


''Andrea’s Tee was inspired by the yarn! I love an over sized drop shoulder construction, lace and Garter Stitch; so it was very clear what I wanted to knit with this beautiful yarn. This is a relaxing knit with just enough detail to keep you engaged! This is a great transition tee to wear between seasons.'' - Andrea Yetman




  • Main Fabric - 4.5mm (US#7) circular needles of at least 75 cm (30”) and preferred needles for small circumference knitting (or size needed to obtain gauge)
  • Ribbing – 4mm (US#6) circular needles of at least 75 cm (30”) and preferred needles for small circumference knitting



22 stitches and 28 rows = 4 inches; 10 cm in Stockinette Stitch

SIZES: XS (S, M, L, XL, XXL) / 34 (36, 38, 40, 42, 44)/ FINISHED BUST: 42 (44, 46, 48, 50, 52) inches

This tee is knit top down starting with the back and then picking up stitches in the cast on edge of the back for the front. There is a little short row shaping for the neckline and for the hem. The tee is joined to knit in the round after the front and back pieces are the desired length. After the tee is knit there is no need to pick up stitches for the neckline or the cuffs of the sleeve. Once casting off at the hem the tee is complete!! Andrea’s Tee is meant to be worn with 8 – 10 inches of positive ease.

Andrea’s Tee

Love this pattern. Great style and Easy to follow.

A tee for teatime!

I’m loving this experience, so many firsts : wrap and turn, picking up stitches from set-up row, knitting top-down and knitting in the round. I’m doing this project in Cascade Ultra Prima which is a lot of fun to work with, will tackle the front lace pattern next. Had to make some adjustments at arm opening. Otherwise the pattern is easy to follow, though I personally have had to resort to YouTube for more precise stitch demos, due to my lack of knitting experience. Can’t wait to wear Andrea’s Tee this summer.

Cute pattern!

Love top-down patterns and the button trim on the sleeves gives it a feminine touch. I was looking for a v-neck pattern and this should fit the bill exactly.

Not What I Was Expecting, But Cute

I had thought this was a simple tee with a pretty lace insert, but soon learned that the construction is unusual in order to get some neck shaping. I was stumped by the instructions after working the first piece, but finally figured out how to continue with the front. The pattern could definitely benefit with more explanation as to what is happening (“you will be picking up from your original cast on row in order to begin the front.”). I’m hoping this is the most difficult part because it is a pretty top.

Thank You!

Free patterns are great, but beautiful free patterns are exceptional. Thank you for the gorgeous free pattern. Can hardly wait to get started.
