A JW Anderson cardigan worn by Harry Styles (pulled from the SS20 collection) is the latest piece of high fashion ephemera to spawn a viral challenge on TikTok. Styles stans pivoted to amateur crocheting, documenting their DIY attempts at recreating the patchwork chunky wool knit which originally retailed for $1,500.

The videos highlight the complexity and judicious planning that goes into producing a multi-color knit, but also the joy that comes with fine-tuning a new craft. @rmbugella817##greenscreen ##harrystyles ##fyp ##harrystylescardigan ##crochet ##diy ##onedirection♬ original sound - rmbugella817

The brand's creative director Jonathan Anderson has since acknowledged the trend and even made the pattern available to download with the message, "I am so impressed and incredibly humbled by this trend and everyone knitting the cardigan. I really wanted to show our appreciation so we are sharing the pattern with everyone. Keep it up! X."
