Last Updated on January 21, 2024

If you have been following me lately, you’d know that I love the Suzette stitch. I love the unique texture of this stitch, and the soft and dense fabric it creates, that’s why I also used it for this Hanging Basket.

So I decided to combine my love for this beautiful crochet stitch with my love for the corner to corner (C2C) method. And that’s how I came up with the Corner to corner crochet Suzette stitch pattern!

Corner to Corner Crochet Suzette Stitch

I know that when you first hear the term ‘corner to corner’ or C2C, you initially think of the ‘traditional’ C2C stitch. But actually, there are more corner to corner variations using different stitches, such as the Wattle and Cluster stitches.

The C2C Suzette stitch is worked in a diagonal with the same method, you start from one corner, increasing both sides of the triangle, and when you reach the desired length you start decreasing on both sides, until reaching the other corner.

The corner to corner crochet Suzette stitch forms a square, but can also be worked to form a rectangle. The Rectangle version is available in the premium pdf pattern on Ravelry and Etsy.

What Projects Can You Make with the C2C Suzette Stitch?

Because of the dense, yet soft texture of the Suzette stitch, it’s a perfect stitch for so many projects. And the best part about the C2C technique, is that you don’t need to count stitches and make this long starting chain! 

  • Blankets – no need to count your stitches, start increasing and decide the size as you go!
  • Hot Pads
  • Washcloths & dishcloths – great project for leftover yarn!
  • Plant hanger! I used this stitch in my Suzette Double Hanging Basket

    As a tutorial for this stitch we will make a washcloth, scroll down for the instructions!

C2C Decrease

When you reach the desired length, start decreasing:
** Place the stitch marker at the beginning of each ch2 so you can easily find it for the decrease stitch.

Continue working row 6 until you have only 2 [1sc, 1dc] stitch in your row (total of 3 sts + ch), than work row 7.

ROW 7: ch1, skip next sc2tog & dc, sc2tog in last sc & ch-2.

  1. Can you make the C2C a rectangle, instead of a square?

    1. Yes, you have that option in the PDF version 🙂

      1. I’m waiting for he code in my email so I can buy the patterns, I’m using the Suzette stitch for a blanket and I’m almost to the point where I can start making it a rectangle, I just need to know how

        1. I will make sure to resend you it to you 🙂

  2. Hi, I’m making the C2C Suzette stitch square and I’m decreasing but my corners in the decrease are rounded. Is that normal? I have frogged back my work so many times!

    1. Hi Amy,
      I’m sorry you are having trouble with the decrease part.
      The corners have a bit of a round shape, but not too much, as you can see in the photos.
      Are you using stitch markers to help find the ch-2 space?
      Also, another way to make sure you are decreasing correctly is to count your ‘Suzette’ stitches [1sc, 1dc]. Every decrease row has one less Suzette stitch to it.
      I hope it helps!

  3. Thank you. I think I was one stitch off on the decrease. I tried again and now it’s correct! Thank you.

    1. I’m so glad it worked out for you!

  4. I’m in the process of making c2c hdc v stitch I’ve pulled out the decrease 4 times now PLEASE HELP!!!!! I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I usually just pull it apart, but I’m going to try this

    1. Hi Donna,
      I’m really sorry you’re having a hard time with decreasing the C2C V stitch.
      I can’t really help without seeing a photo (you are welcome to email me a close up of your decrease part and I’ll do my best to find the problem).
      Are you using stitch markers to help find the ch-2 space?
      Also, another way to make sure you are decreasing correctly is to count your V stitches [1hdc, ch1, 1hdc]. Every decrease row has 2 less V stitches to it.
      I hope it helps!

  5. Do you ever add a border?

    1. Hi Sara,
      I think the stitch creates a smooth edging, so I don’t add a border when I’m working this stitch.

      But this is a personal preference of course, and you can add any border you like 🙂
