UK to US Crochet Stitch Conversion

Did you know that the UK and the US use different crochet terms?

It can often be confusing when you read a pattern and do not realise it is written in different crochet terms to what you use.

I remember doing a pattern carefully in double crochet only to find that it was US terms and I should have been doing a treble!

So for convenience I have listed the main terms below to help with conversion.

 UK Crochet Term US Equivalent
Chain stitch Chain stitch
Double crochet Single crochet
Half treble crochet Half double crochet
Treble crochet Double crochet
Double treble crochet Treble crochet
Triple treble crochet Double treble crochet
