Grab your scraps or some multi-color yarn and call on your inner artist, it’s time to throw a patchwork party!

You’ll likely find the construction of this sweater different from anything you’ve seen before, but that doesn’t mean it’s complicated–quite the opposite, in fact!

This painterly cardigan uses a clever technique of crocheting in strips to minimize seaming and create fewer ends to weave in. The concept and stitches are very simple, but the color planning will keep you entertained as you sail through your sweater strips.

With endless ways to customize, this is a cardigan you can truly make you own. Add buttons, adjust the length, stick to neutrals or make a rainbow–pattern includes lots of notes on how to crochet exactly the sweater you’ll love to wear!

*** Part 1 of the detailed video tutorial will be available Feb 3, 2022. Each Thurs in Feb, the next portion of the video tutorial will be released. Join the Make & Do Crew Patchwork Party Crochet Along beginning Feb 3 and crochet this sweater along with others in the M&DC community!

Pattern is written in sizes XS, S/M, L/1X, 2X/3X, 4X/5X and uses a category 5, chunky weight yarn such as Lion Brand Scarfie or similar.

Yarn amounts listed in pattern will result in leftover yarn at the end of the project. This is intentional to allow for flexible color planning. Should you want to purchase only enough yarn to crochet the sweater without manipulating the colors, you’ll need approximately 3 (4, 5, 6, 6) skeins (approx. 433 (583, 750, 851, 900) g).
