Macrame Tshirt Yarn Top

Suppies: jersey knit (1 yard)
t-shirt yarn

I love casual knit tops with a little something to make them stand out from your average tshirt. I made this using a jersey cotton blend knit I got for $2.  It drapes just the way I like a tshirt. The sleeves were made out of tshirt string and then macrame woven into a cool pattern. I will not be doing a tutorial simply because it will take hours and be so confusing to teach online. I would suggest investing in macrame books if you like this craft. 

A comfy piece that stands out.
