Crochet Talk: Terminology

Many crocheters are familiar that Australian/UK and American crochet patterns are written in different terminology.

Sometimes it becomes a little confusing for those just starting out and learning to crochet. So I’ve drawn up a handy conversion chart for easy reference below.

Before you begin your next project simply check if the crochet pattern has been written in Australian/UK or American terminology, once that has been determined then consult the chart below!

The most important thing to remember is, that even though the terminology may be different, the actual methods of making the stitches are the same.

  1. Thanks for this really useful chart!

  2. This is great. I don’t really have much of an issue with the terminology of stitches mine is more with the yarn comparison. One for that please?

  3. Really enjoy the information you have been sharing with us…is. the graphs,the simple basic patterns…it makes it all seem so much more integrated and accessible. Thank you.

  4. What I have a problem with is trying to determine whether it is written in UK or American. Going to different sites, sometimes it is hard to tell which it is if they don’t let us know. Any suggestions?

  5. could you add a photo of the stitch as well? pretty please?

  7. Thank you so much for this useful chart, I always get confused, UK, American or Australian, then I have to convert in to Icelandic, which is totally different. Your chart really helps. Thanks
