Quick note :
If you want to use this stitch in other projects where you may have increases and decreases :
To increase the suzette stitch, you should make two sts in the very last st instead of one or two more sts ( so an extra suzette st)
Decreasing is a little trickier because you have to work 2 sc together to decrease by one st each time.
