AN INTRODUCTORY GUIDE TO CROCHET ABBREVIATIONS AND TERMINOLOGIES
HOW TO CROCHET
To create fabrics and projects with our hook, we must familiarize ourselves with crochet abbreviations and terminologies.
We will come across these terms and abbreviations when we read a pattern. The guide above will help us with Abbreviations and crochet terms.
Some crochet terminologies in the US and in the UK versions may vary slightly. For instance, double crochet (DC) in the UK version , is known as a single crochet and abbreviated as SC in the US version. So, before we begin our project when relying on written patterns, we must first establish the version of terms we will be using.
|UK VERSION||US VERSION|
|Double Crochet||DC||Single Crochet||SC|
|Half Treble Crochet||HTR||Half Double Crochet||HDC|
|Treble Crochet||TR||Double Crochet||DC|
|Double Treble Crochet||DTR||Treble Crochet||TR|
|Triple Treble Crochet||TTR||Double Treble Crochet||DTR|
As with the slight differences in the terminologies, the UK and the US Crochet Systems, also use different terms with regards to yarn and hook sizes. So, noting these things before beginning any project, can help avoid any problems as we complete our projects.
