The Lemon Peel Stitch is such a fun and relaxing stitch to crochet that has a great texture. I love using this stitch for a variety of different projects but it’s fabulous for crocheting in front of the t.v. The Lemon Peel Stitch is really easy to crochet and great for beginners. I’ve got both a photo and video tutorial for us today so let’s grab our hooks and our yarn and let’s learn how to crochet the Lemon Peel Stitch.

You can use any hook and yarn combination with this stitch but today I’ll be using a Furls Odyssey 5.5mm crochet hook and a Brava Worsted Weight Yarn from We Crochet. You can mix up your hook and yarn weights to change up the look of this stitch.

- Chain any even number of CHs
How to Crochet the Lemon Peel Stitch
Row 1: SC in the 2nd CH from the hook. DC in the next CH. *SC in the next CH, DC in the next* across the chain, SC in the last CH. In my example here, I started with a CH 12 and at the end of Row 1, I have 11 sts.
Row 2: Turn and CH 1. *SC in the first ST, DC in the next * repeat instructions in asterisk ** until one CH remains. SC in the last CH.
Repeat Row 2 until you have reached your desired size.
That’s it! Super simple right? This stitch is great for dishclothes, bags, blankets and so much more!
