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…

Have you made a crochet mug rug before? Designed to look like a miniature rug, it’s usually rectangle in shape instead of a traditional round coaster. They’re often slightly bigger and can include fun little details like tapestry work or tassels.
