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.

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.

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.
