We love ways we can show off our craft, and make something practical and beautiful at the same time. This project caught our eye as great for those starting out in crochet too.
The Suzette bag is strong and sturdy with lots of texture and once you get going and memorize the stitch, this is going to work up nice and fast and give instant satisfaction to those new to crochet. And do try the Bernat Maker Home Decor Yarn if you haven’t already. It’s a tubular yarn that feels like a soft t-shirt material. Great for bags, rugs, and lots more. You can buy it in a rainbow of colors below.
This video shows you how to easily make the Suzette stitch, needed for this bag. It’s just single and double crochet – anyone can do it!
