Hello and welcome to Rich Textures Crochet! Today we are going to learn how to crochet this really easy scarf pattern called the Lemon Peel Scarf!
Not too long ago I posted a pattern for a cowl using this fun yarn I found at a local yarn shop called Boing! by Lion Brand Yarn. You can find that free pattern and video tutorial here: Quick and Easy Crochet Cowl Pattern.
After working the cowl I still had a few balls left of the Boing! yarn so I also decided to make a really easy scarf pattern.
Lemon Peel Stitch:
This pattern features the lemon Peel stitch (also sometimes called the seed stitch). The pattern is made up of single crochet and double crochet stitches and when worked in this bulky weight yarn, it works up really quickly!
I love the texture in the Boing Yarn! It is a blended yarn, mostly acrylic. It’s very soft, silky and has quite a bit of spring in it! Even after fringing and balling the yarn, it continued to maintain its stretchy texture as I worked with it.
The pattern calls for three balls of the Boing! yarn. This gave me enough to make a long scarf and add a short fringe. I’ve paired the yarn with an 8 mm crochet hook.
The full easy scarf pattern will be written out below and as well I have included a video tutorial for the stitch. If you would like to purchase an ad free PDF copy you may do so through my Etsy and Ravelry shops linked below:
