The number of quotes involving suggestions on what to do with lemons when life gives them to you are innumerable. But here are my two favorites: “when life gives you lemons, freeze them and throw them as hard as you can at the people making your life difficult”, and “when life gives you lemons, grab tequila and salt.” Well, I’m going to add one for us hookers: When life gives you lemons, make a crochet pattern that looks like them. So here it is for you, a lemon free crochet pattern which can be downloaded for printing here.
The lemon pattern includes the method for crocheting a lemon in 3 different conditions: whole, wedge and slice. Pick one or make them all, it’s up to you! The printable pattern is available for free in the Resource Library here!
There’s no doubt that if it were a competition, limes would win out as my all-time favorite citrus. I love lime everything…especially when it involves said tequila (or gin). But coming in a close second, is the almighty lemon. Mediterranean meals dominate my dinnertime cooking, so there is at least one lemon in my fridge at all times. Like 100% of the time. I prefer Meyer lemons but they only show up in stores seasonally around here, so the standard lemon is always a go-to.
But let’s get to crocheting these lemon bits!
