Suzette Stitch Blanket Cardigan Free Crochet Pattern

by | Sep 8, 2020 | Cardigans, Clothing, Crochet Patterns, Fall, Winter | 2 comments

So many stitches- so little time! That’s been the theme in my life lately. I’ve been doing my freelance web design work now for about 5 months since the start of the pandemic lockdown, and business has been picking up. I crocheted this blanket cardigan back in summer, because I knew that the fall season would be a busy one for me.

I learned the Suzette Stitch and knew I had to make something large-scale from this lovely stitch pattern. Made up of just single and double crochets, the stitch is beautiful and beginner friendly. This cardigan looks like a lovely and complicated piece, but really it’s just a large square that is seamed with arm holes, making it the perfect cardigan pattern for beginners, or anyone who just loves the silhouette and some easy T.V. crocheting.


1200-1500 yards (Lion Brand Pound of Love- Oxford Gray approx 1.1 skein)

Crochet hook: Us size 9 (5.5mm)

Yarn needle


Ch : chain

Sc : single crochet

Dc : double crochet

Pattern Notes:

I used just over 1 skein of Lion Brand Pound of Love. This pattern is one size fits most. For larger or smaller sizes, chain an even number of stitches for suzette st. 

Suzette Stitch:

1. 1 sc, 1 dc) in the 2nd chain from the hook *skip one stitch (1 sc, 1 dc) in the next stitch* repeat from * to * across to the last 2 stitches, skip one stitch, sc in last st

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

Repeat row 2 for pattern

Still not sure how to do this stitch? Check out this great video tutorial by Make & Do Crew, another amazing source for free crochet patterns!

Begin Pattern: 

Ch 124

Work in suzette st. until piece measures 38×38” (96cmx96cm)

Fold all 4 corners toward center, seam from center, leaving holes for arms.

I hope you enjoyed this pattern, it was very fun to make, and so cozy to wear. I get lots of compliments on the cardigan whenever I wear it out. It’s one of those knits that will never go out of style!
