Supplies I Used
- Marriner Yarn double knit (light worsted) yarn in brown
MarrinerYarns ships only in the UK, so for my international customers, I can recommend a similar yarn, Red Heart Yarn , which comes is a multitude of colors and weights, just as affordable and easy to work with as Marriner Yarns.
- 4mm crochet hook
I get most of my crochet supplies from Amazon, it’s fast and easy and I find everything I need in one place.
Written in US terms
This pattern doesn’t have any special stitches, it uses only basic stitches.
For those who learn better from watching videos, I’ve made a video tutorial to show you how to crochet the Paris stitch and how to carry the yarn over to the next row.
Crocheting The Paris Stitch Pattern
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 previous row, sk3* repeat ** until the last ch, 2dc in the last chain, turn.
Repeat row 3 until you have the desired length.
