okay so i think you need to make 2 fronts and 1 side
then you can sew it together

maybe you could make a really stretched out hexagon shape? like a rectangle with a triangle on either side? here’s smth i tried to put together rq

(triangle pattern courtesy of easycrochet.com)

Row 1: ch 2, in the second ch from the hook sc 2x (inc), turn. (2)

Row 2: Ch 1, sc, sc 2x (inc) into the last st, turn. (3)

Row 3: Ch 1, sc into each st across, sc 2x (inc) into the last st, turn. (4)

keep repeating row 3’s pattern until triangle is desired length; stitch count will increase by one with each row

then, from there, make a rectangle (work back n forth until you reach desired length), and finally start decreasing in the last st of every row. basically u reverse the first triangle to finish it off

not sure how you want to do the inner part of the lemon (magic ring folded in half or two separate semicircles maybe ?) but i’d suggest you make it first so you can size the lemon peel correctly (since it’s gonna “wrap around” the inner piece)

lots of sewing unfortunately but i do think it’s possible

Could you make a magic circle, chain 1 and reverse directions only using the stitches you need? Then ch 1 and reverse again going back and forth?

I made a watermelon wedge once, I made the two side pieces and a kind of diamond shaped piece for the bottom, then crocheted the sides of the diamond to the curved edges of the side pieces. If any of that makes sense lol.
