Crochet Abbreviations


In this post I will tell you more about the abbreviations I mention in my crochet patterns.

Happy reading.



Crochet abbreviations

ch              chain

hdc            half double crochet

dc              double crochet

sc              single crochet

sl st           slip stitch

tr                treble crochet

st               stitch

sts             stitches

This website has a listing of crochet terms and their abbreviations. It also explains everything with pictures and/or videos. It is a great help.

When I started to crochet, I used the slip stitch manner to finish a row. I recently found this way of doing it on Pinterest for a more beautiful finish.
