How to Crochet the Suzette Stitch

The Suzette Stitch is one of my absolute favorite crochet stitches to do!

Besides the fact that it is so easy, it creates the most amazing texture and a solid fabric. Sometimes when you’re making blankets or clothing, you don’t want a bunch of holes that let the cold in. This is where the Suzette Stitch shines!

You can use it on quite a few different styles of crochet projects. You only need a multiple of 2 for your chains!

(These instructions are assuming that you are already familiar with crocheting the basic stitches of single crochet and double crochet.)

For a few finished examples of the Suzette Stitch, you can check out Cullen’s Baby Blanket and the Old Glory American Flag Afghan patterns here on my blog.

The yarn I used in this tutorial is Red Heart Soft Yarn in Tangerine that you can purchase at this link. The hook I’m using is a size H/8 (5.00 mm) Boye hook that I bought at Wal-Mart.

So without further ado, let’s get started!

Suzette Stitch

Begin with a chain that is a multiple of 2 (or just an even number of chains).

In the second chain from the hook, single crochet once.

Insert your hook back into the same stitch you just did the single crochet, and work a double crochet.

Now you are going to skip one chain.

After skipping the one chain, you will single crochet in the next chain.

You will continue to repeat the pattern of single crochet and double crochet in the same stitch, then skip one stitch until you reach the last two chains.

Skip the second to the last chain and in the final chain, only single crochet once.

In the first stitch that the chain one comes out of, single crochet.

Just like on the previous row, double crochet in the same stitch with the single crochet you just made.

Skip one stitch (that was a double crochet on the previous row). Now single crochet and double crochet in the next stitch.

Turn your work.

Continue working the pattern until your piece measures the desired length or number of rows.

And that’s it. It’s super simple and once you get going it works up quickly.
