The Suzette stitch is an easy crochet stitch, which only uses single crochet (sc) and double crochet (dc) stitches.

One of the best things about the Suzette stitch is that it creates a soft texture fabric that is reversible so that you won’t have to worry about the right and wrong sides.

On top of this, the Suzette stitch is a closed stitch and it creates a solid fabric, which is ideal for crocheting anything for the colder months.

I used it to crochet my Candy Corn Dishcloth.
