Today’s stitch is the Suzette Stitch. With the beautiful texture this stitch makes, it will definitely upgrade any item you’re making!

I love this gorgeous vintage fabric stitch, so simply but incredibly pretty. It creates a nice and graceful texture that’s perfect for anything! Scarves, afghans, bags, apparels, and even blankets. With its two stitch repeat pattern, it makes a sturdy and beautiful fabric that will surely add a nice touch to anything you make.
The Suzette stitch works well with cotton yarns. Practice making this stitch by taking some scrap yarns from your previous projects.
Start by making a chain stitch, make an odd number of stitches and create one more that will serve as your turning stitch. Now, you have an even number of stitches.
Row 1: Make a single crochet and double crochet on the second chain from hook. .*Skip the next chain, then make a single crochet and double crochet in the next chain.* Repeat this pattern until you have two stitches left. Skip the next chain, then make a single crochet in the next stitch.
Row 2: Chain 1, then turn your work. *Single crochet and double crochet in the single crochet from the previous row, then skip the next stitch.* Repeat this pattern until you reach the end of the row. Make a single crochet on the last stitch.
Continuously repeat row 2 until you have mastered the stitch or you have reached your desired length.
