November is here! A blanket on the sofa, a pair of wrist warmers, a headband, or a shawl for when you head outdoors… These are just a few of life’s essentials as the days grow colder and shorter. And of course, nothing beats crocheting these fun accessories yourself. Say, with Suzette stitch which we are showcasing this month at Yarnplaza.
What is Suzette stitch?
Suzette stitch is a very simple crochet stitch that is a pleasure to crochet. By working a single crochet and double crochet (US terms) into a single stitch and skipping the next, you create a dense crochet fabric with a lovely texture. Given the compact nature of Suzette stitch, we suggest that you use a larger hook than the size recommended on the yarn label. That way you get the best results and a nice, supple fabric.
What can you crochet with Suzette stitch?
Because Suzette stitch produces such a dense fabric, it’s ideal for projects intended to keep you warm. Think of baby blankets and throws, shawls, scarves, and headbands. Suzette stitch is also perfect for cushion covers, bags, crochet cases, or even cardigans.
