When you work with the pattern, always pay attention to the language of the pattern (usually specified by every designer in the description of the pattern). There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English languages. Today I want to share the comparison chart of the most used crocheting terms in American and British languages, plus their symbols in the pattern’s diagrams.
|Slip Stitch||Slip Stitch|
|Single Crochet||Double Crochet|
|Half Double Crochet||Half Treble Crochet|
|Double Crochet||Treble Crochet|
|Treble Crochet||Double Treble Crochet|
|Double Treble Crochet||Triple Treble Crochet|
|Double Crochet Cluster||Treble Crochet Cluster|
|Magic Loop||Magic Loop|
|Bind off||Cast off|
|Yarn Over||Yarn Over Hook|
|Skip||Miss / Skip|
My patterns are written in American English, but I always include the chart with terms in both languages to avoid the confusion.
