Suzette Stitch (Stitch Sampler Scrapghan CAL 2021 – Part 1)

January 8, 2021

The first stitch for the 2021 Stitch Sampler Scrapghan CAL is one of my all-time favorites – the Suzette Stitch! I’ve used this stitch in quite a few patterns: the Crop Tank Top, Campfire Ear Warmer, Claret Infinity Scarf, Cozy Cropped Sweater, and Tweed Cardi.

Stitch Sampler Scrapghan Crochet Along 2021 - Hi there! Thank you for your interest in joining my Stitch Sampler Scrapghan Crochet Along 2021! We're going to spend the next 13 week making this pretty blanket, one square at a time!

It’s not too late to join the Stitch Sampler Scrapghan CAL! You can find all the Scrapghan Crochet Along info HERE. Join my FACEBOOK GROUP to share your progress with your fellow crocheters!

· this square is 2 sided and does not have a right side

Scrapghan Tips

· If you’re having trouble getting the sizing right, remember that it’s easier to adjust a square that’s too small than one that’s too big.

· If a square comes out too small you can add an additional round for the border, go up a hook size, and/or steam block and stretch the square to the size you want.

· The edges might curl. This can be fixed with some steam blocking. It won’t be noticeable after sewing.

· Each square has at least 2 rounds of border. For the last round of the border I used the same color for each square (the dark gray). This is the same color used for the sewing.

· The squares will be released in sewing order, starting with the bottom left. I left a long end for sewing on each of the squares.

Ch 38 (ch any even number)

Row 1: (1 sc, 1 dc) all in 2nd ch from the hook, *skip 1 stitch, (1 sc, 1 dc) all in next stitch*, repeat from * to * across to last 2 stitches, skip 1 stitch, sc in last (37)

Row 2: ch 1, turn, (1 sc, 1 dc) all in first sc, skip next dc, *(1 sc, 1 dc) all in next sc, skip next dc*, repeat from * to * across to last stitch, sc in last stitch (37)

Row 2 – 38: repeat row 2 (or until the length matches the width)

BORDER

With the same color used for the square, work around the entire square

Round 1: ch 1, sc along the side of the square, working 1 sc in the side of each row to the corner, 3 sc in corner, sc in each stitch across to next corner, 3 sc in corner, sc along the side of the square, working 1 sc in the side of each row to the corner, 3 sc in corner, sc in each stitch to last, 2 sc in last stitch, join to first sc

Change to border/joining color

Round 2: ch 1, *sc in each stitch across to corner, 3 sc in corner* repeat from * to * around, join to first sc with sl st

Fasten off.

Leave a long end for sewing.

Weave in the other ends.

    1. I must crochet looser than I thought. I did 3 rows and it was 13 1/2 inches. Frogged and got it right by dropping a few chains. Love the pattern

  1. Oh thank you this is lovely! I’m going to start it today!… I have both grandkids here today b/c of bad weather but I’ll crochet at every opportunity…. thank you!

  2. I’m excited to get started! I just downloaded the pattern, and will start today. Love the clear, written instructions!

  3. I’m excited to start the CAL and learning some new stitches! Thank you for all of your hard work in putting this CAL together. ❤️

  4. Your color choices are always so lovely. Would you post the names for inspiration. I know scrap yarn use is often encouraged. I like the color schemes as a springboard or deliberate choice for my projects.

    Thanks in advance

    1. Hi! Sorry, I don’t remember the color name! All the yarn I used is I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby 🙂

  5. Hi Breann!

    Is it more important for the stitch count along border to be consistent or the size of the squares? Since we’re joining the squares it seems more logical for stitch count to match. I do very few joining projects (terrible at it!) so I don’t know what the correct answer is. My first square is square after only 34 rounds so unsure if I should do the last 4 before the border.

    Thanks tons!!

    1. Hi! My squares had a different number of stitches for each one. When I sewed them, I lined them up with stitch markers. If one side had less stitches doubled up on that side when sewing. I’ll try to make a video showing how I did this 🙂

      1. Thanks Breann! I’ll go ahead and move to the border rounds and hope for the best when sewing time comes up! 🙂

  6. I’m looking forward to making this! Does the 12 inch dimension include the border? Or,is it sized before the border is added to the square? Thank you!

      1. Hi Breann,Im a tight hooker, h (mm) worsted. I measure my late?? made square comes out 10″. Will block & with the 2 row border hopefully 12″. Also I count only 37 st?? thats right. ty for giving me a stress release fun time. Mn

    1. Hi Breann, I just started today. My first square is looking curled in the base (It seems my chains are too tight?) would to recommend to rip it out and start again or would you think it will fix as I continue to crochet?

      1. Hi! That depends on how curled it is 🙂 If it’s just a little bit, it might be ok after blocking and sewing.

        1. So excited to start this beautiful project. Thank you for sharing your work. Will the foundation row work with this pattern start?

  7. Could you share how much yarn will be needed for each week’s square? I’m using a mixture of scraps and new yarn, so knowing how much I’ll need each week will help me plan how best to use what I have. Thanks.

      1. I was hoping for a breakdown now of what will be needed …
        Week 1 – 105g
        Week 2 – “x” g
        Week 3 – “y” g
        etc.

  8. Do you have a guesstimate for how much yarn will be needed just for the border row on each square and the joining of squares?

      1. Perfect! Thank you for your answer. I do love the Suzette stitch. I’m thinking of using it for an infinity scarf.

  9. Thank for sharing your talent. I have completed my first block and enjoyed learning a new stitch. Looking forward to the next.

  10. Started today, worsted soft scrappy yarn with H hook. Pale grassy green measured 10″ so with border should come out 12″ I hope. May do soft colors more Spring?? TY
