Crochet Watermelon Sugar Pastel Patchwork Cardigan

Hello everyone! I am really excited to bring to you the crochet Watermelon Sugar Pastel Patchwork Cardigan. I hope you are all doing well on this Christmas week. This project truly is a labour of love, and I loved crocheting every minute of it!

Crochet Watermelon Sugar Pastel Patchwork Cardigan
This is such a cute project!

I absolutely adore this version of the JW Anderson inspired patchwork cardigan. As you may recall, I recreated the original crochet version for this iconic cardigan worn by Harry Styles. You can find here: Crochet The Iconic Harry Styles Watermelon Sugar Cardigan

Crochet Watermelon Sugar Pastel Patchwork Cardigan: a feminine and cute take on this iconic design

I decided to create a more feminine and cute version of this iconic cardigan. I had been wanting to crochet this piece for a long time, I just needed the time. These crochet projects are quite consuming, as they require a lot of sewing and stitching. However, I loved every part of the process.

Squares
These squares look so pretty together

The pastel colours look so lovely together! I loved crocheting the different shades of this iconic cardigan. Also, I made this crochet piece a little more fitted and cropped than the original version. However, it is a very versatile and easy to wear crochet piece. It is just less large than the original version worn by Harry Styles.

I love pink as you know, and pastel colours. It was therefore a joy to create this piece of crochet clothing with these various shades of pastel.

Crochet Watermelon Sugar Pastel Patchwork Cardigan: the yarn

For this crochet design, I used Stylecraft Special DK yarn. I have listed all the colours and shades used down below, in the pattern section of this blog post. This project is crocheted in various shades of pink, lilac, and blues. I adore how feminine and sweet it looks, and it has inspired me to crochet more items of clothing in pastel colours. I just love how these colours look together!

You can substitute this yarn with any DK/Light 3 yarn of your preference if Stylecraft Special DK is not available in your country. Paintbox DK yarn is a very good match, and has a similar colour scheme you can use.

However, you can certainly use any yarn of your preference. This could make a great “scrap yarn project”. Let me know which colours or yarn you use, I love to know.

Crochet Watermelon Sugar Pastel Patchwork Cardigan: the inspiration

Of course, the inspiration behind this cardigan is JW Anderson’s original patchwork cardigan worn by Harry Styles. You can find the original knit pattern of this cardigan here: JW Anderson Knit Cardigan Pattern

I love how inspired I am by this beautiful project. This pattern went viral on Tik Tok over the Summer, after Harry Styles wore this design to sing his new song Watermelon Sugar. It then became a challenge to recreate it. However, this is a knit pattern, and I decided to create a crochet version of it. The original version I crocheted (the free pattern and video tutorial) is linked in the previous paragraph.

I hope you enjoy this new version of this iconic design. Please do let me know if you decide to recreate it!
