Materials Needed:

Before delving into the Suzette stitch, let’s gather the materials you will need:

  • A worsted weight yarn or of your favorite yarn. – For any new pattern, it is ideal to practice on a medium-weight yarn.
  • A crochet hook size suitable for the selected yarn.
  • Scissors.
  • Yarn needle or a tapestry needle
  • Stitch Markers are optional

Important tips and tricks for maintaining stitch consistency:

  1. Pay attention to tension. Consistent tension ensures uniformity throughout your work.
  2. Count stitches regularly to prevent any accidental increases or decreases.
  3. Use stitch markers to help you identify specific stitches or sections within your project.
  4. Identify which stitch to skip and which stitch to work into – especially when working on the first and last stitch.
  5. Take breaks to evaluate your progress and make any necessary adjustments.
