    1. One problem with the chart. UK terms uses “slip stitch” just like American. They don’t have a single crochet stitch. If the pattern doesn’t specify UK/American you know it is American if it includes any single crochet.

      You forgot to add South Africa as a serous cricket playing nation!! Lol, love the way you made the distinction though, Thank you for the chart – I’m a South African living in the USA. Yes the patterns can get confusing and this is just the right size chart to keep with my work

    3. Love the note about cricket nations! I am a Scot living in New Zealand who taught myself to crochet four months ago using a British book and an American YouTube video. I had no idea there was a difference until something didn’t look quite right! Now I write in all the library books I get out which terminology they use! Hopefully stop others having to un-crochet too many times lol!

    4. I never knew there was a difference b/c I learned by watching my mother in law crochet. An instructor told me that I use the European technique. I still need lessons on reading instructions.

      Your stitch conversion may have been intended to try and help people but it’s not really accurate. There’s no such thing as single crochet in British terms, a slip stitch is a slip stitch (American or British) Gauge is still gauge, it’s just affected by your tension.
