Hey guys! My name is Sam and I’m so excited to be hosting a stitch tutorial with Vamicreations! I have been crocheting for about 5 years now, the first 3 years of this journey, I looked at crochet as only a hobby. However, in the last 2 years I made the transition of trying to turn it into a business by designing crochet patterns. There have been so many changes for me and my designs in the past few years, but my one constant the entire time has been my favorite go to stitch, The Suzette Stitch! This stitch is super simple but beautiful and creates a of texture without being overly complicated and time consuming which is why I use it time and time again! If you don’t know how to do The Suzette Stitch, i’m here to walk you through it!
Foundation Row: Chain any multiple of 2
Row 1: Work 1 Single Crochet (SC) and 1 Double Crochet (DC) in the second Chain Stitch, Skip 1 Chain, *1 SC and 1 DC into the next Chain Stitch, Skip 1 Chain*, Repeat from * to * until you reach the last stitch, Work 1 SC into the last stitch, Chain 1 and turn your work
Row 2: Work 1 SC and 1 DC into the first stitch, Skip 1 stitch, *Work 1 SC and 1 DC into the next stitch, Skip 1 stitch* Repeat from * to * until you reach the last stitch, Work 1 SC into the last stitch, Chain 1 and turn your work.
Now you can repeat Row 2 until your piece reaches the desired length and it is as simple as that! As I said, this is my go to stitch because it works up fast and you only need to know two basic stitches to create this unique stitch and texture!
