Arcade Crochet Stitch

The arcade crochet stitch is a lovely reversible and firm pattern for use with place mats coasters, table runners or center pieces.

Choose a solid color or a variety of shades, it still looks perfect every time. I have made the sample in worsted weight #3, using a 5.00mm hook.

If you use a softer yarn and a larger hook it will make ideal blanket for you to snuggle up in too.
