Melu Crochet Guide: UK to US stitch conversion chart

The UK and US terminology for crocheters is slightly different. It is easy to convert so don’t be afraid to try out a pattern if it is not in your native terminology!

All you need to do is to -1! For example UK treble = US double.

UK dc= US sc

UK htr= US hdc

UK tr= US dc

UK dtr= US tr

UK ttr= US dtr

UK ExDc= US ExSc (extended double/single crochet)

slip st and chain are the same in both UK and US terms.

Here is a handy chart to help you easily convert your crochet patterns:
