Adorable Crochet Solomon’s Knot Tee Pattern

The crochet Solomon’s Knot is such a fun technique. You use the same skills that you already know from basic crochet. However, you tweak them for a totally different stitch look. Usually, Solomon’s Knot patterns are entirely in this technique. However, some smart designs, like this Crochet Solomon’s Knot Tee pattern we’re sharing with you today, use just a few rows of the stitch to create a beautiful design within the larger pattern. In this case, the knots create a lovely open design on the hem of a summer crochet tee shirt. This is a very wearable design that lets you incorporate a little bit of something different into it as you craft

How to Crochet Solomon’s Knot

Solomon’s Knot is a specific crochet stitch, often called Love Knot or Lovers Knot. In this stitch, you’ll pull up a long loop, longer than usual, to create a very, very open design. Then:

  • Yarn over
  • Pull through the loop on the hook
  • Insert the hook around the back loop (this is different from what you’re used to in crochet, but you’ve got this)
  • Yarn over
  • Pull up a loop
  • Yarn over one more time
  • Draw through both loops on the hook.

Here’s a crochet video tutorial from Robyn for how to crochet Solomon’s Knot. See the small love knots worked with thread in a beaded cuff pattern? (Find the link to the free pattern at the bottom of this page.) The love knots in your tee will be bigger, but how to crochet the Solomon’s knot is exactly the same.

Then, of course, you make it special by adding the row of love knots across the bottom hem. This is what makes the pattern unique from all other crochet tee shirts out there. It’s a great way to do what you know, level it up with a fun new stitch, and create something beautiful to add to your wardrobe.

Gloss Fingering Yarn

The suggested yarn is Gloss Fingering Yarn. This is a fingering weight yarn of 70% merino wool and 30% silk. This gives you softness, perfect drape, and comfort for a summer tee-shirt. Often, wool feels too heavy for summer, but when combined with silk in a light fingering weight yarn, it truly works perfectly. It showcases various stitch types well, so it looks great for the main portion of the tee shirt and the love knots detail. This yarn is available in seventeen different colors.
