How to use the Crochet Stitch Abbreviation Guide
- To read the guide first of all you start by finding the language you understand the best or prefer.
- Then find the language in which you want to know the crochet abbreviations.
An example: You speak Spanish. You want to understand the abbreviations, stitches and terms in English US. Next up is to find the abbreviation, term or stitch you want to understand.

Another example: You speak English US and you want to understand what a single crochet is in English UK/Australian. Find the place it says “single crochet” in the English US column. Then find the parallel place in English UK/Australian column. Now you know that a “single crochet” in English US is called a “double crochet” in English UK/Australian.
Continue like this until you have found all the abbreviations, stitches and terms you would like to know.
