The Marielle Lace Tee child size crochet pattern combines the fun and easy stitch pattern of the Marielle Lace Shawl, Marielle Lace Slouch, and Addy Lace Caridgan crochet patterns, along with the simplicty of two rectangle construction! Summer is in full swing and temperatures are soaring! I don’t know about you, but easy and breezy are the two adjectives that describe my family’s wardrobe right now. This lacy design really does fit the bill when it comes to hot weather fashion.

Cotton Fair is a 52%/48% cotton/acrylic blend yarn which I have used for my designs several times! The stitch definition is fantastic, the colours are beautiful and I find that the fabrics I make with it don’t lose their shape, even after washing.

Special Pattern Notes
This tee was designed with 2-4” of positive ease. For a more fitted top, make the next size down.
When following the stitch counts at the end of each round, the numbers are in chronological order by size, (2,4,6,8,10,12). When only one stitch count is given, it is the same for all sizes.
All instructions within parentheses (…) are worked into the same stitch or space.
This garment is worked in two pieces and then joined at the shoulders and sides.
Sample was made in a size 6. Model typically wears a child size 5 in tops.

Row 1: Ch (43, 47, 51, 55, 59, 63), sc in 2nd ch from hook, *ch2, sk1ch, sc in next, repeat from * across, sc in last. (22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32 sc)
Row 2-10: Ch1, turn, sc in first st, *ch2, sk1st, sc in next ch2 space, repeat from * across, sc in last. (22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32 sc)
Row 11: Ch4 (counts as tr), turn, sk1st, (2tr, ch2, dc) in next ch2 space, *sk next ch2 space, (2tr, ch2, dc) in next ch2 space, repeat from * across, tr in last st. (19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29 Marielle Sts)
Row 12: Ch4, turn, (2tr, ch2, dc) in each ch2 space across, tr in top of previous row’s beginning ch4. (19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29 Marielle Sts)
Repeat Row 12 until entire piece measures desired finished length when stretched slightly. See chart on Page 1 for suggested length per size.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
One Panel finished.
Repeat for second Panel.
I recommend blocking at this point. For a step-by-step tutorial, read this blog post.
To finish the Marielle Tee, you will sew the shoulder seams and the sides.
Using a tapestry needle and a length of yarn approximately 2.5x the length to be seamed, sew the two Panels together. I recommend THIS TUTORIAL for a couple different seaming options.
Each shoulder seam should be approximately (2”, 2.5”, 3”, 3.5”, 4”, 4.5”) long.
Each side seam should begin right above the Bottom Band, and continue up, leaving a (4.25”, 4.75”, 5”, 5.5”, 6”, 6.25”) armhole opening.
Fasten off and weave in all ends.
