Are both OK? I like the pattern on your t-shirt. I like the pattern of your t-shirt.

Hello Good Evening Pelin, English is very nuanced and the two sentences could have different meanings: I like the pattern on your t-shirt refers to the picture/image such as a logo or design. I like the pattern of your t-shirt refers to the tailoring of the t shirt in terms of the pattern design of the width, collar, seam and cut. That's my view. Precise use of words is essential to convey meaning. :-)

The first one is the correct way to say it.

Hello! I would say the first one is much more commonly used!
