An Old Favorite Scarf Pattern

Here’s how it works.

An Old Favorite Scarf Pattern is crocheted with Chunky Weight Yarn [5] and an 8 mm (L) hook. This scarf features the Lemon Peel Stitch (Griddle Stitch).

If you love the look of the lemon peel stitch, you may also enjoy crocheting the matching hat and twisted headband patterns too.

The yarn I used for this month’s scarf and hat projects was sent to me by King Cole. It is a lovely neutral base with flecks of rainbow color throughout. The finished scarf is warm and soft and holds the shape of my stitches perfectly.

When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.

You may customize the length by working the repeat of R2 and R3 as many, or as few, times as you wish.

  1. Hi Donna, the lemon peel stitch is the same as the griddle stitch. You alternate single crochet and double crochet stitches across the rows. You work sc in the double crochet and dc in the single crochet. So the pattern is correct as written. I have a set-up row for row 1 which is single crochet. Then we alternate R2 and R3 for the remainder of the pattern. Working single crochet in the double crochet and double crochet in the single crochet stitches. I’m not sure why you are questioning the pattern. If you can explain more then I can try to assist you. Rhondda

  2. Check the pattern again. Row 1 you say sc in each stitch.

    Row 2 you say dc in the first sc and then sc in the next dc. The lemon peel stitch is the same one you use for the Caron cake big bag. That’s alternating sc and dc across the whole row.
