The suzette stitch makes another appearance on my blog in this new crochet washcloth design. It’s definitely one of my favourite stitches and with the beautiful texture and dense appearance, you can see why it’s a great choice for projects like washcloths.
The simple ridges in the middle are eye catching and create a nice break in the repetitiveness of the suzette stitch. This washcloth works up quickly and has a simple edging to provide a neat and tidy finish. Learn more about this design and find the free pattern below…

Special Stitch Tutorial:
Suzette Stitch – One SC and one DC are placed into the same stitch. Skip the next stitch. Repeat. After the last skipped stitch of the row, place 1 SC in the final stitch. Detailed walkthrough: Click here
Into the second CH from your hook and each stitch across, place 1 SC. CH 1 and turn.
(37 SC stitches)
Into the first stitch, place 1 SC and 1 DC. SK the next stitch. *Into the next stitch, place 1 SC and 1 DC. SK the next stitch.* Repeat from * to * 16 more times. Place 1 SC into the last stitch. CH 1 and turn.
(19 SC stitches, 18 DC stitches = 37 stitches
Into the first stitch and each stitch across the row, place 1 HDC. CH 1 and turn.
(37 HDC stitches)
Repeat rows 2-13
Into the first stitch and each stitch across, place 1 SC. Fasten off and weave in ends
(37 SC stitches)
(I find fastening off and re-joining the yarn in the middle of an edge provides a neater finish for the border)
Join yarn into the middle of any edge with a SS and CH 1. Evenly place 1 SC around all edges and make 1 SC, CH 2, 1 SC into each corner space. SS into the beginning SC, fasten off and weave in all ends.
