Are you a fan of the suzette stitch? It’s one of my favourites to use within patterns and such a great way to expand on the basic stitches. If you can make the single crochet and double crochet, you can do the suzette stitch!
This fun scarf pattern makes use of colour blocking for a fun and eye catching design. The striped sections are a great opportunity to use up leftover skeins from your stash! Which colours would you use?

– This pattern is written in US terms
– Gauge is 4×4 inches: 9 rows containing 13 HDC stitches
– Turning CH 1 does not count as a stitch
– Finished scarf measures approximately 51 ½ inches long and 7 ½ inches wide. It is on the shorter side for scarves but allows the person wearing it to comfortably tuck it inside jackets without too much extra bulk
– Using one skein for the suzette section, I was able to make 80 rows leaving a very small amount of yarn leftover. Depending in your yarn choice, that row count may differ slightly. If you would like to extend the length of the suzette section, simply continue the suzette rows until you reach the desired length before continuing on with the last three colour blocks. This will require extra yardage than what is mentioned in the materials
– A special stitch tutorial is included within the pattern
– I used WeCrochet Brava worsted in 4 colours. The approximate yardage for each section is as follows: 53 yards each for colours A, B, and C and 218 yards for colour D.
– Colourway names used in pattern photos are called “Currant” (colour A), “Fairy Tale” (colour B), “Lady Slipper” (Colour C) and “Seraphim” (Colour D)
– 5mm hook
– Yarn needle
CH – Chain
SC – Single Crochet
HDC – Half Double Crochet
DC – Double Crochet
Special Stitch Tutorial:
Suzette Stitch – One SC and one DC are placed into the same stitch. Skip the next stitch. Repeat across the row. After the last skipped stitch of the row, place 1 SC.
