Lemon Peel Stitch Coaster – Free Crochet Pattern

74Shares

The lemon peel stitch is so fun to use within crochet projects. You only need to use single crochet and double crochet so it’s very beginner friendly but also a nice variation when you need a bit of a change and want to switch things up!

Today I’m sharing a quick and simple coaster pattern that uses the lemon peel stitch to make a cute little set. You can make however you need in whatever colours you choose. If this stitch is new to you or you need a refresher, a tutorial for the lemon peel stitch is included within the pattern.

Let’s make some coasters!

Notes:

  • This pattern is written in US terms (find a stitch conversion chart here)
  • Gauge is hard to measure for this pattern as the finished piece is typically the size of a
    traditional gauge swatch
  • Finished coaster measures approximately 4×4 inches
  • Turning CH for rows 1-10 does not count as a stitch
  • Special stitch tutorial is included within the pattern
  • You might find a quick blocking of your coasters to be beneficial
  • Extra photos can be found on the last page for optional printing

Materials Needed:

  • Worsted weight cotton yarn in two colours. Approximately 16 yards in colour A and 6
    yards for colour B. I used WeCrochet Dishie in “Blush” and “White” (yardage is for one
    coaster)
  • 4mm hook, or other size that is complimentary to your yarn. I used my cute Dots hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape

Stitches:
CH – Chain
SS – Slip Stitch
SC – Single Crochet
DC – Double Crochet

Special Stitch Tutorial:
Lemon Peel Stitch – The lemon peel stitch starts with an odd number of chains. It
is made by alternating SC and DC stitches, always starting with a SC and ending on
a DC.
Detailed Tutorial: click here


Pattern:
With yarn colour A, CH 15

Row 1:
Into the second CH from your hook, place 1 SC followed by 1 DC in the next stitch. Repeat this stitch sequence of 1 SC then 1 DC across the row, ending with a DC stitch. CH 1 and turn.

(7 SC stitches, 7 DC stitches = 14 stitches)

Rows 2-10:
Into the first stitch, place 1 SC followed by 1 DC in the next stitch. Repeat this stitch sequence of 1 SC then 1 DC across the row, ending with a DC stitch. CH 1 and turn for all rows except row 10. After completing row 10, fasten off.

(7 SC stitches, 7 DC stitches = 14 stitches)

Edging:
(I find fastening off and re-joining the yarn in the middle of an edge provides a neater finish for the border)

Round 1:
With yarn colour A, join into the middle of any edge with a SS and CH 1 (represents 1 SC). Evenly place 1 SC around all edges and make 1 SC, CH 2, 1 SC into each corner space. SS into the beginning CH 1, fasten off. [Photo A]

Round 2:
Join yarn colour B into the middle of any edge with a SS and CH 1 (represents 1 SC). Evenly place 1 SC around all edges and make 1 SC, CH 2, 1 SC into each CH 2 corner space. SS into the beginning CH 1, fasten off and weave in all ends. [Photo B]
