Super Easy Lemon Peel Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

Share this idea!

The Lemon Peel Crochet Dishcloth Pattern is a beginner friendly crochet project that you can work up in an hour or two, plus they make great handmade gifts.

Previously, I shared with you the very simple and easy to learn Lemon Peel Crochet Stitch. So, I thought it would be fun to share with you this Lemon Peel Crochet Dishcloth Pattern so you can put to practice the stitch you learned. Just like the moss stitch crocheted dishcloth pattern that I previously shared with you, the lemon stitch works up really nicely into a dishcloth.

If you need a refresher on how to crochet the Lemon Peel Stitch, you’ll find my tutorial here. You’ll also find a video tutorial on my YouTube channel. In fact, I’d love it if you’d subscribe to my YouTube channel while you’re there. Thank you, in advance!
