Colorful Lemon Peel Stitch Blankets

Lemon Peel Stitch Rainbow Blanket by JennyFiver

Dreamy colorway of Lion Brand Mandala Baby yarn was a perfect choice for a baby blanket, don’t you think? Take a look at the photos and see how nicely this stitch and yarn go together. Jenny decided to finish it off with a simple purple half double crochet edging, but I think more elaborate border would be beautiful, too!

Multicolored yarn works best with simple repeatable patterns, so it’s no surprise that lemon peel stitch looks great here. As you can see in Anna’s photos, delicate structure nicely enhances the speckled colorway. Will it be a blanket, or a winter scarf?

I think the best patterns are the ones that you can easily modify depending on your needs, and this blanket is definitely one of such! Crocheter behind Maisie and Ruth decided to go with vibrant stripes and pair it with white, but what catches my eye is definitely a stunning border!

Blue Lemon Blankie by ennaih

Ennaih decided to bust her stash and use up two acrylic yarn cakes that were lying around, and I’m glad she did! Although she wasn’t too happy with the final product, I must admit that this colorway is right on point. It creates elegant waves and would be a nice option for a masculine project – intended for a father, or grandfather!

Author of this blanket adapted paid crochet pattern called Lovely Textured Keyhole Scarf with Spiral Flower by Kara Gunza (which you can buy through ravelry.com), but you can make similar project using any free pattern linked in this article.

Strawberry Lemon Peel Baby Blanket by Crochet 365 Knit Too

As most of the projects I chose for this article, this blanket also features ombre yarn, but in a much more limited colorway. Hues of strawberry pink and cream change seamlessly, creating an elegant look. If you take a closer look at the photos, you’ll see a stunning ribbed border, so consider this as an option for your blanket.

Lemon Peel Blanket by LSG57

I don’t know why, but this version truly caught my eye – maybe because of the color combination? Crocheter going by the name of LSG57 used three skeins of Lion Brand Mandala Baby, which is a multicolored yarn. What’s worth mentioning is definitely the border, because it’s a simple single and double crochet repeat.
