Hi! Lauren from Daisy Cottage Designs here! Today, I’ll show you how to do the Suzette Stitch in crochet. It’s a cool stitch I used for this sample in front of me. I like making dishcloths to test new stitches. Let’s start!
You’ll need a crochet hook (I’m using a 5.5 mm hook) and yarn (I prefer cotton). Make a chain of an odd number. For our practice, let’s do a chain of 11.
Insert your hook under the “nubs” at the back of the chain to keep a neat edge. Then, single crochet in the second chain from the hook and continue single crocheting across the chain. For our chain of 11, you’ll have 10 single crochet stitches in the first row.
Chain one and turn your work. Now, we’ll start the Suzette Stitch pattern. Instead of counting the chains as stitches, we’ll always work into the first stitch. Do a half double crochet in the first stitch, skip the next stitch, then in the following stitch, do a single crochet and a double crochet.
Continue this pattern across: skip a stitch, then in the next one, do a single crochet and a double crochet. At the end of the row, do a half double crochet in the last stitch.
Keep repeating this pattern: half double crochet, skip, single crochet, double crochet, across the row. This pattern creates a textured fabric that’s great for dishcloths or even scarves and blankets.
Remember, using the right hook size ensures your fabric is flexible. Have fun crocheting and feel free to ask any questions! Happy crafting!
