Griddle stitch (also known as Lemon Peel Stitch) is a great stitch to introduce you to texture! This is one of my favourite stitches for its simpleness and flow when you’re creating it.
The stitch is a simple combination of alternating single crochet and double crochet across a row (or double crochet and treble if you prefer UK terms.
Things to remember when making this stitch:
- Your foundation chain will be any uneven number, if starting within an existing row, you need an even number of stitches
- Always start a row with single crochet and finish with double crochet
- The single crochet always works into the double crochet
- The double crochet always works into the single crochet
Now we have that covered, here is the stitch instruction card!
I’ve put together a short video tutorial as well.
