Different Crochet Terms

For those of you trying to convert my UK term patterns to US terms this might help…

slip stitch (slst) and chain (ch) mean the same in both US & UK
US single crochet (sc) = UK double crochet (dc) – (insert hook, yo, pull up loop, yo pull through both loops)
US double crochet (dc) = UK treble crochet (tr) – (yo, insert hook, yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull through 2 loops, yo, pull through 2)
US half double crochet (hdc) = UK half treble crochet (htr) – (yo, insert hook, yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull through all 3 loops)
US treble crochet (tr) = UK double treble crochet (dtr) – (yo twice, insert hook, yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull through 2, yo, pull through 2, yo, pull through 2)
US double treble crochet (dtr) = UK triple treble crochet (trtr) – (yo 3x, insert hook, yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull through 2, yo, pull through 2, yo, pull through 2, yo, pull through 2)
