How To: UK and US crochet terms

After writing a few posts, I have realized I had been writing in UK terms but I hadn’t given a conversion for US term crochet-ers! So without further ado..

half treble crochet – htchalf double crochet – hdc

I plan to update this as and when I use different stitches, but the ones above should see you through most of the patterns I post =)

Happy crocheting!
