New ~ Stitch ~ Sunday – Lemonpeel and Moss 

…..nope, not a new Smoothie recipe – really the names of two beautiful crochet stitches. 😋

Hello my lovely friends 💕 I’m glad you could visit! 

Today’s stitches are not just beautiful, but also very easy…even for beginners. 

The first one – the ‘Lemonpeel’ stitch only uses two basic stitches. Single- and Double Crochet. 

So grab some yarn and a matching hook and crochet along. 😊

– Chain an even number of stitches for the foundation chain. 

– Row 1 Chain 1, sc in the second chain from the hook, dc in the next stitch. *sc in the next stitch, dc in the one after that* . Repeat to the end of the row. 

– Row 2 Chain 1, turn your work. Sc in the very first stitch, dc into the next. Repeat alternating sc and dc to the end of the row. 

Repeat Row 2 until your piece is the desired size. 

It’ll look like this…

The second stitch is the Moss Stitch. This one is moving fast to the top of my list of favorites! 😍

Ready? Let’s go…

– Chain an even number of stitches for the foundation chain. 

Row 1  Skip the first 3 chain stitches, and sc into the fourth. *Ch 1, skip the next stitch, sc into the next* Repeat to the end of the row, ending with a sc in the last chain. 

Row 2  Ch 2, turn your work. Sc in the first chain space of the previous row. Ch1, sc in chain space and so on. Last stitch should be a sc into ch space. 

Repeat Row 2 until you’ve reached the desired length. 

There, wasn’t that easy. 🤗 You wanna know what it looks like? 

I love it worked with a ‘self-patterned’ yarn 


Pretty nifty, eh? 😎

Do you think you’ll give these stitches a try? What will you make? Let me know …because I’m quite nosy by nature 😜

Now I leave you alone so you have time to practice! 😁

I hope to see you soon! 

Until then 💕

    Oh I’ve made a scarf using moss stitch, but I didn’t know that’s what it was called!

      No, I never tried it. To be honest I had to look it up 😂 I had an idea what it is, but wasn’t quite sure. I found a website where they show it using the Moss stitch. Now I have to try it! I’ll let you know how it goes 😀 Thanks for visiting and the suggestion 🤗
