Welcome to the Make it Your Way Crochet Along! Option two for week one of the crochet along is this beautiful Suzette Afghan Square crochet pattern!
Welcome to week one, option two of the Make it Your Way Crochet Along! If you would like to check out option one for this week, you will find it here: Spiked Sedge Stitch Afghan Square.
As I mentioned in the other post, I am so excited about this crochet along! Not only are we making one of my favourite things, a stitch sampler blanket, but in this crochet along, you get to be the designer!
To recap, each week during the event I will post two crochet afghan square patterns (Option One and Option Two), you will choose one of them, and then work four squares of it. At the end of this crochet along it is possible that no two blankets will be the same! I think that’s pretty amazing!
If you have not heard about the Make it Your Way Crochet Along yet, I invite you to check out this introduction post: Make it Your Way Crochet Along – it’s not too late to join in! The afghan square crochet patterns will remain up here for free on Rich Textures Crochet long after the event is finished!

About the Square:
Option two for this first week of the Make it Your Way crochet along is this beautiful Suzette Afghan Square. I love the suzette stitch. It is beautiful and features a great solid texture that is the same on both sides. It is very easy to work!
The Suzette Stitch pattern is made up of two basic crochet stitches (US crochet terms): the single crochet, and double crochet. If you know how to work those two stitches, you can work this pattern! There will also be a full video tutorial posted below to assist.
For the crochet along you can use any medium/worsted weight yarn – it can be new to your or from your stash, but choose a favourite! Don’t worry if you are finding that your yarn works up a little smaller or larger than mine, I will include the stitch multiples below in case you need to adjust the length of your foundation chain in order to get the correct size square. For my blanket I used four different colours. This week you will choose which square you would like to work and then work four squares (one in each colour). When it comes time to crocheting the blanket squares together, you will have 20 of them. Each square will measure approximately 10.5-11 inches.
For those curious, for my blanket I will be using the Vanna’s Choice yarn by Lion Brand Yarn.
The colours I have chosen for my blankets are following an earthy toned colour palate including the colours Dusty Blue, Shadow, Linen, Taupe, and as I made two full blankets in order to work all of the squares, one of the blankets will also include Silver Heather. For complete amounts of yarn needed for the full blanket be sure to refer to the crochet along introduction post linked at the start of this post.
Along with the yarn you will need a 6 mm (J/10) crochet hook for most of the squares. For one of the squares it may be recommended that you go down to a 5 mm (H/8) crochet hook, but for this one you will need the 6 mm.
A PDF of these squares will be available in my Etsy and Ravelry Shops AT THE END of this crochet along. I will post them as two separate blankets, one including the squares for option A and one for Option B. So stay tuned if you are looking for that PDF!
Without further delay, let’s get to that first square pattern – Enjoy!
