Now that things are starting to get back to normal and my work life has slowed down some I can get back to doing the things I enjoy, like creating new crochet patterns.
I am still working through the book I picked up The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet Book and came across the lemon peel stitch. So I incorporated that stitch into the dishcloths that I’ve been creating with my single crochet stripe on each end, thus resulting in the pattern below for the Lemon Peel Stitch Crochet Dishcloth.
I used the usual cotton yarn that I prefer to use when it comes to dishcloths.
Also I don’t use a chain at the beginning of each row. I prefer the look that not having the chain gives, but if you prefer you can always ad the chain in at the start of a new row.
If you want to make your dishcloth bigger or smaller just make sure to start off with an odd number chain at the start.
This crochet pattern is written in US terms.
If you want to change the size of the dishcloth the initial chain needs to be an odd number.
Rows are not started with a chain 1, the first sc starts in the first stitch for this dishcloth.
