Jorja Collection: Table Runner Crochet Pattern

Jorja Collection: Placemat Crochet Pattern

Stitch of the Week: Paired Single Crochet

By Crochet Contributor Sara. Follow Sara on her blog, Sunflower Crochet Cottage.

Also known as the interlocking single crochet stitch, this is a quick and easy stitch to do. It is worked by single crocheting two-together across the row. To keep the stitch count, each stitch will be worked twice, as well as starting each row with a single crochet in the first stitch.
