Crochet Paris Stitch – Pattern Description
One row repeats it’s all it takes to create this really easy, double-sided stitch called the Paris stitch.
The Paris stitch pattern is beginner-friendly, using only basic stitches such as single crochet and double crochet.
The pattern is double-sided meaning it looks great on either side and so, can be used in a variety of projects, from blankets and throws to jumpers and hats.
The pattern looks great using only one color or multiple color changes.
Below you will find a detailed illustrated tutorial with step-by-step instructions and a video for those who learn better from watching how the Paris stitch is crocheted.

Marriner Yarns ships only in the UK, so for my international customers, I can recommend a similar yarn, Red Heart Yarn, which comes in a multitude of colors and weights, just as affordable and easy to work with as Marriner Yarns.
I get most of my crochet supplies from Amazon, it’s fast and easy and I find everything I need in one place.

Crocheting The Paris Stitch Pattern Instructions
The pattern is a repeat of one row and requires multiples of 3 + 1 chains.
Ch3 at the beginning of each row counts as a dc.
For this tutorial, my starting chain was 22 long.
Row 1: ch22
Row 2: dc in 4th chain, sk2, *(2dc, ch2, sc) in the following chain, sk2*, repeat ** until the last ch, 2dc in the last chain, turn.
Row 3: ch3, dc in the very first stitch, sk2, *(2dc, ch2, sc) in the following ch2 space from the previous row, sk3* repeat ** until the last ch, 2dc in the last chain, turn.
Repeat row 3 until you have the desired length.
