Crochet Suzette stitch is an easy to learn stitch that creates a beautifully textured crochet fabric. Suzette stitch crochet pattern is made up of single crochet and double crochet stitches that are arranged in a specific order. If you are an advanced beginner, meaning you know how to crochet basic crochet stitches, then you will find the Suzette stitch easy! Scroll down to see the written instructions and the video tutorial below.
Suzette stitch is easy to learn and easy to crochet once you understand the pattern and the order of stitches. It’s a one-row repeat and once you get going you can easily crochet on auto-pilot without thinking about the next stitch. I personally love those type of mindless stitches where you can relax in front of a fireplace, TV or just listen to an audio book 🙂
Suzette stitch is a set of single crochet and double crochet stitches that are worked in the same stitch. Then you skip one stitch and work another set of single crochet and double crochet stitches in the next stitch. That’s basically all there is to it! And it the end of a row, you work one single crochet in the last stitch. Scroll down to see the complete crochet instructions for Suzette stitch!

Suzette Stitch Crochet Instructions
Chain 19 (or any odd number)
Row 1: work a SC in the second Ch from your hook. Then work a DC into the same stitch as the SC. *Skip 1 Ch, work a SC in the next Ch and a DC into the same Ch. Repeat from * across. You will have one chain left, work a SC into the last Ch.
Row 2: Ch 1 and turn. Work a SC and a DC into the first St (which is the last SC in the previous row). Then skip the next St (which is a DC in the previous row) and work a SC and a DC into the next St (which is a SC in the previous row). You’ll alway work into the SC stitches in the previous rows and skip the DC stitches. Repeat across the row until the last St. Work a SC into the last stitch.
Row 3: Repeat row 2 until you reach your desired size.
That was the Suzette crochet stitch! Watch the video demonstration below for more visual guidance. Also, if you need to count the rows and wondering how, scroll down to see how I do it!

How to Count the Rows in Suzette Stitch
Now that you know how to crochet Suzette stitch, you may want to make a bigger project such as a kitchen towel or a blanket. And if you are following a pattern, there might be a number of rows that you need to complete. If you look at your Suzette stitch sample and see a mish-mash of stitches, the rows are not very clearly defined, like when you have in single crochet or double crochet rows. So, how do you count the rows in Suzette stitch?
Here is how I count the rows. I look on one side of my project and count the stitches that look like horizontal bars. You can see that stitch I’m talking about below in the picture, inside the white circle, row 2. Lay your project flat with the yarn tail from the foundation chain being on the left side. Now look at the very first crochet stitches on the left. The first horizontal bar marks 2 completed rows. The next horizontal bar is two rows above which makes 4 completed rows, and so on. That way we count the even numbered rows. The odd numbered rows will have a single crochet stitch as you can see clearly in the last row, number 9.
So, if the yarn tail is on the left and your hook is on the same side, then you’ll have an odd number of rows.
When working the Suzette stitch, being consistent and making sure to always count on the same side makes it easy to keep track of your rows! If it’s a large project like a blanket, and it’s important for you to keep track of your rows, it helps to use stitch markers. You can keep one stitch marker in every tenth row as you go so that you count from there and not from the beginning each time.
