Difficulty

The pattern provided seems beginner-friendly, as it includes detailed instructions for each round and stitch. Difficulty might arise in understanding some crochet abbreviations and techniques like the magic ring, slip stitch, sc2tog (single crochet decrease), and picot stitch. However, we encouraged you to try harder patterns since we have video tutorials available to guide them through the process and help them learn with patience and practice, beginners can confidently tackle more complex patterns.

Gauge

The gauge for the given pattern is not explicitly mentioned. However, the pattern can be followed as written, and the size of the finished project will depend on the individual’s tension and the yarn and hook size they choose to use. If a specific size is desired, crocheters can experiment with different hook sizes and yarn weights to achieve the desired gauge and size.

Stitches and Abbreviation

  • Sc – Single crochet
  • Ss – Slip stitch
  • Ch – Chain
  • Hdc – Half double crochet
  • Dc – Double crochet 
  • Sc2tog – Single crochet two together
  • Ps – picot stitch 

Special Stitches

  • Single crochet two-together (sc2tog): This is a decrease stitch used to reduce the number of stitches in a row or round. To work a sc2tog, insert the hook into the designated stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop, then insert the hook into the next stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop. You will have three loops on the hook. Yarn over again and pull through all three loops to complete the stitch. The sc2tog stitch is used in Rounds 14, 15, 16, and 17 of the Lemon pattern to shape the lemon and create a tapered effect.
  • Chain 1 picot stitch: A picot stitch is a decorative loop often used to create edges or decorative elements in crochet. In Round 2 of the Leaf pattern, after working single crochet stitches all around, a chain 1 picot stitch is made at the tip of the leaf. To make a chain 1 picot, simply chain 1, then slip stitch into the first chain made to form a small loop. These special stitches are used to add shaping, decreases, and decorative details to the patterns, enhancing the overall appearance of the finished lemon and leaf.
