Stitches

UK to US Crochet Terms

When I first started, I would often get confused as to whether a pattern was in UK or US terms, as unfortunately many patterns don’t clearly state this. One trick is, if the pattern mentions single crochet (SC), then it must be in US terms as SC does not exist in the UK. 

As a reference, the table below lists the main crochet stitches used by most patterns in both UK terms and their US equivalents.
