I have this mesh stitch pattern t-shirt in my head for a long time, only that I pictured it with long sleeves, but didn’t have enough yarn, so here it is the short sleeves version and maybe the one with long sleeves will come someday.

Well, I had enough yarn, but in the middle of the process I changed my mind and I wanted to make a pair of shorts to match the t-shirt. The shorts pattern is available here

The good thing about this t-shirt is that the sleeves are worked into the armhole, so if you want longer sleeves as I did in the beginning you can make them.

I love this crocheted matching set so much, that I think I will live in it all summer. 😂

This Marble T-shirt is so lightweight, is made out of cotton, and has enough holes to make it wearable even on the hottest summer days. And is beginner-friendly.

So, let’s see what we will need and how to make this Marble T-shirt.

MATERIALS

• Yarn: Sport weight yarn
o Cotton
o Cotton mix
• Crochet Hook:
o 4.5 mm crochet hook (I used Odyssey Crochet Hook Black by Furls Crochet)
o 3.5 mm crochet hook for edging
• yarn needle for weave in ends
• Stitch markers
• Scissors

NOTES ABOUT DESIGN

This Marble T-shirt has an easy construction and it’s seamless. It’s worked top-down starting with the back panel up to the armpit. Then the front is worked up to the armpit up to the armpit.

Then, both pieces are joined and the length from the armpit is worked in the round. This allows you to adjust the length as you wish just by working more or fewer rounds.

The sleeves are worked into the armhole in the round.

This Marble T-shirt pattern features techniques as double crochet, chain stitches, and single crochet.
