UK vs US crochet terms



I've been bitten by the crochet bug! It's been years since I've done more than trims and edges with crochet.  This Sirdar pattern has been on my "to-do" list almost that long!

Once I got past the differences between US and British crochet abbreviations, it was a fast and fun project.  I substituted our 5/2 Perle Cotton for the yarn in the pattern (no longer available)

Canada/USA
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
hdc = half dbl crochet
tr (trc) = triple crochet

UK
sl st = slip stitch
dc = double crochet
tr = treble
htr = half treble
dtr = double treble

Excellent chart. It is so confusing with the same terms meaning different things. Now I know to always take a good look at where the pattern came from. Thanks.
