August 3rd is National Watermelon Day, but we celebrate this juicy fruit all summer long. Watermelon is such a great fruit for hot weather, since it is rich in water and so refreshing! It's also a cute source of inspiration for some really adorable crochet patterns including the ten watermelon crochet patterns featured here.
