The Suzette stitch is a beautiful crochet technique that creates a really dense, warm and textured piece, which is perfect for cosy homeware like blankets and cushions. It looks quite complicated, however it is super simple, as it is just two simple stitches worked in repeat. It has a really modern look and is super popular for scarves, cowls, accessories and also projects for the home.

This intricate technique is a really beautiful stitch that is a combination of double and half treble crochet stitches in a specific pattern that creates a woven effect. I think this looks really elegant, perfect for blankets, scarves and more.

Another beautiful dense stitch is the Forked Cluster. A gorgeous texture to add to any blanket or cowl as it looks great on both sides!

      Hi Lisa To increase the Suzette Stitch I would make two DC in the very last stitch instead of one for two rows – this will give you two more stitches (so one extra Suzette Stitch). Decreasing is a little more tricky as it involves working two stitches together to decrease by one stitch each time. If you decrease in this way at the ends of the blanket you will find it alters the pattern and creates a border at the edges. Hope this helps
