As a crocheter, you most likely learned to read and understand crochet stitch terms in either US terms or UK terms. While both create the same basic stitches, the terms for some of them are in fact different. If you’re used to following one set of terms, finding the other style in a pattern can seem a little confusing or intimidating.
This happened to me recently as I use US terms but the pattern I was using was written in UK terms. It called for a double crochet stitch and out of habit, I worked half the round using the US method which created a taller stitch than what the pattern required (in UK terms, a double crochet stitch is actually single crochet). It can be hard to remember the conversions off the top of your head so I created a simple chart to help!
You can save this little chart to your phone or print it off for your own personal reference. I hope you find it helpful if you ever need to do some stitch conversion.
