US. vs UK Crochet Terminology

Several of the books that I’ve been reviewing here for Crochet Book Month are published in Europe so I thought I’d better mention that it’s always important to note whether a crochet pattern is written in US terminology or UK terminology. Most of the books, particularly those published in the UK, will mention specifically the terminology that they use and often include a conversion chart for you in case you need one. I don’t think any of the books I’ve reviewed, yet, are Australian but I’ll add that Australian crochet terminology is the same as UK terminology.

Here’s a little chart I put together. Feel free to share it as long as you link back to this post!
