However, if you’re working a pattern that features stitches of different heights, you’ll want to use one of the crochet decreases mentioned below. These decreases account for the alternating heights of single crochets and double crochets found in the lemon peel stitch, a beautiful stitch that gives patterns gorgeous texture and is featured in our Purr-fect Backpack pattern.
