Crochet stitch conversion chart

Why do you need a crochet stitch conversion chart?

At some time or another, every UK crocheter has come across a pattern online and thought, “what on Earth is a single crochet (sc)?”. While frantically checking your crochet stitch book, you start to wonder if you’ve gone a bit mad. Well, you haven’t. The single crochet stitch is a US term and it’s not the only term that differs from the ones we use here in the UK.

To help you decipher that crochet pattern and be on your way to hooking greatness, here’s my handy crochet stitch conversion chart.
