suzette stitch

Suzette, she is so pretty.

I love this gorgeous vintage fabric stitch, so simply but incredibly pretty. This is the Suzette Stitch from the vintage crochet book New Directions in Crochet by Anne Rabun Ough - I would normally include a link but I can't find this book anywhere so if you do come across one make sure you buy it because it's extremely awesome.

At the moment I have so many commissions coming in the door (hurrah) that I find I'm stitch swatching every day, the good thing is I love swatching and now that I do video tutorials for most of them, it allows me to keep a good record of what works and what doesn't.
